Executive Editor @zandoprojects . 408 in the land of 212. It's pronounced meow with an L. Opinions are my own. She/her.
Tiffany Liao @Tiff_LiaoDid not fully think through seeing #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce after arguing w/ my mom (my mask was SODDEN) but I truly felt changed. I laughed until I cried & cried until I laughed, a perfect movie A+++
Ring in #AAPIHeritageMonth and see it 6 or 8 times (keep it lucky y'all)
I mean @dunkwun & Daniel Scheinert truly were like buckle in bbs intergenerational trauma's going interdimensional!!
I love when art is as ambitious and weird as it is big-hearted and hopeful👁️🥯🧧
#EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce is my forever #mswl
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyours#BirdsOfPrey was SO GOOD. Like it was colorful and gay and like the most Harley Quinn and i can’t wait to see it fifty billion more times. Walked out of the theater feeling like a badass 🔥💕❤️
More #MSWL: YA with "high stakes" low stakes a la Sally Rooney with a relationship that is so emotionally charged that one text or e-mail might just mean the end of the world. Across all genres, not just contemporary!
Tiffany Liao @Tiff_LiaoMy Friday #mswl: a story with an "Arrival"-like twist that unfurls across many layers rather than pulls the rug out from under you
Huzzah #MSWL day! I'm still yearning for this speculative, twisty YA, something ambitious in scope and structure that doesn't forsake emotions or characters.
Tiffany Liao @Tiff_LiaoA brief review of #TheHauntingofHillHouse:
BF: I'm so thirsty but I'm too scared to go get a glass of water. Will you go with me?
Me: Drink your spit.
Henry Lien @HenryLienAuthor#PEASPROUTCHEN MAKES @HornBook's LIST OF STRANGE AND MAGICAL MIDDLE-GRADE
In truth, PEASPROUT is a fantasy with no actual magic, but it makes up for that in strangeness because, let’s face it, that’s me. Congrats @wenmass @rebstead @EMentior @Hey_buster tinyurl.com/yawjvtyp
#mswl: be it contemp, fantasy, sci-fi, let's see sex positivity.
Give me a character whose sexual feelings are a crucial part of but not the entirety of her identity. I want characters who enjoy sex bc hey it feels good & sex scenes that don't necessarily have emotional import!
Isabel Ibañez Davis @isabel9thLPI leave twitter for all of two hours and suddenly VAMPIRES are making a comeback.
My heart guys. I want all the stories. But this time around can we also do latina and black and asian and indian and egyptian vampires, too?
I mean, please?! 🙏🏽
#mswl where my jiangshi stories at?
Tiffany Liao @Tiff_Liao#mswl MG a la PAN'S LABYRINTH--layered fairytale that doesn't flinch from reality, finds the light in the darkness. Fascist stomping a plus.
For #MSWL, still looking for this MG fantasy to crack my heart open! And maybe stomp fascists.
