YA historical featuring a trans/NB mc w/the gorgeous evocative prose of The Last Night at the Telegraph Club. A sense of angst, discovery, desire, a bit of complexity. If I'd had TLNATTC when I was younger, I'd have understood myself earlier. I want that for trans/NB teens #mswl

#MSWL a beautifully written PB/MG/YA touching upon and shedding light on Korean American history. Something like one of my favorite films, 말λͺ¨μ΄ Mal-Mo-E, weaving humor, nuanced characters, complicated family dynamics beating w/love, & a spirit of resistance against the odds.

When it comes to taste, I tend to be drawn to visual projects & prose w/strong imagery. #mswl For I was a kid whose art school dreams were dashed early on, & the inner art kid hasn't died yet. I doodle at a pace of 1x year & am planning the next. Last year's existential lantern:

YAAS. Jobu Tupaki may be one of the best characters to ever grace the film screen. My wild #MSWL: a smart YA that has the feel of Everything Everywhere All at Once from the POV of Jobu w/the dysfunctional but heartfelt family dynamics, existential angst, absurd humor, & queer rep

From the coalface of publishing: all editors are saying no more witches please or retellings of myths.

I'll always want witches & myth retellings! Just give me a strong voice, layered characterization, & beautiful textured writing with them. Would especially love to see witches from underrepresented backgrounds - like, can I get a witch living in a hanok in the woods? #mswl twitter.com/KarolinaSutton…

Your run of the mill enemies to lovers story where the villain is obsessed with the heroine except this is the second iteration of the story; they were lovers before but she died in his arms so he went back in time and chose evil because maybe if she hates him, she’ll live.

Love this. Enemies to lovers (& vice versa) is a trope I'm a huge sucker for, not to mention sympathetic villains (like Xu Wenwu) and heroes who are willing to be perceived as or who become villainous for noble reasons in the vein of The Dark Knight or Simon/Ice King #mswl
