A kid-and-her-dog MG novel with depth and complexity, a la BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE. It's a high bar because I am in love with that book. #MSWL

Looking for a MG that gives me a crazy amount of feelings. I love MG because as a 12 yr old, you're feeling A LOT for the first time...#MSWL

LGBTQ historical romance. I want to see a historical period/event from this underrepresented perspective. (Must be well researched!) #MSWL

In life, I have major wanderlust. So in books too, I want to be transported to evocative, authentic settings. #MSWL

I would love a feminist-as-hell YA about a coven of witches. I can imagine a bunch of awesome interpretations of this setup. #MSWL

Always very down for unique fairytale/fable retellings that feel lush and sweeping and maybe a little (a lot) sexy. #MSWL

#MSWL a YA--historical or contemp--with a setting that's a character in its own right & a twist of something darkly magical/darkly strange

#MSWL A YA like Jane the Virgin in that it follows a tight-knit multi generational family, diverse cast of characters, warm & full of heart
