Camryn Garrett @dancingofpensGive me coming of age movies where black girls get to be horrible and funny like in LADY BIRD or where they get to be weird and funny like in BOOKSMART or where they get to be cute and fall in love like in TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE

Autostraddle @autostraddleNatasha Lyonne’s #RussianDoll is the darkest, funniest, most comforting show of 2019 so far. bit.ly/2RMqNi7 pic.twitter.com/w7z05HLpC3
YES! THIS! Also, I really want to work on some speculative fiction that's as sharp, funny, and layered as #RussianDoll. Something that uses the speculative element to say something, not just as a cool hook #mswl

Danielle Burby @DanielleBurbyThings I'm looking for right now: Creepy atmospheric forests, queer love stories, YA and MG fantasy, sister stories, boarding schools, complicated family and friendship dynamics, seaside novels, literary writing with commercial plot, interesting magic, feminism #MSWL

10/10 would read this psychological thriller. or, better yet, a book that tricks you into thinking it's dark af but somehow pulls off a "nope this is totally normal and fine" twist that you never see coming. #mswl

B.N. Harrison @bnharrison"My math teacher is low-key terrified of all of us," the tween in my house told us tonight at dinner.
And then she explained why. (thread)

I know I'm always like "don't send me horror!" but i'm kind of obsessed with this photo set & would read the hell out of this MG novel #MSWL
Zan Romanoff @zanopticon.@lithub let me write about one of my persistent obsessions: the tropes of depicting female friendships lithub.com/more-than-the-…
A literary YA that deconstructs, subverts, and/or otherwise thoughtfully engages with the trope(s) of The Beauty and The Heroine #MSWL
