... a broad range of MG & YA fiction and graphic novels--fantasy (my first & greatest love as a reader), historical, romance, some great humor, and high-concept contemporary (especially with a framing device such as epistolary elements, then-and-now timelines, etc.) #MSWL

In the middle of @CatSWrites's new book and deeply wishing for YA historical romance to become More Of A Thing. Agents, if you've got one coming up, send it my way! #mswl

4.2) Historical or contemporary fantasy with a sharp, fresh, feminist twist on old folklore. Looking for my Holly Black or YA Alix Harrow ๐Ÿ™

Oddly specific Halloween #mswl: in the mood for... a YA ghost romance? ๐Ÿค” Some kind of historical or time-travel shenanigans a plus but not required.

Would also still love some fun, swashbuckly, queer/feminist/all of the above YA historical fiction (with or without magic) #MSWL

Seriously craving some historical MG & YA. Bonus points if it's a less commonly depicted time/place! (i.e. outside WWII Europe) #mswl
