๐ŸŽผ While we're on Broadway: a retelling that feels as fresh and topical but perfectly, wholly, inevitably classic as Hadestown. Also very much looking for retellings/riffs on folklore and legend that decolonize and reclaim magic from white patriarchy (think LEGENDBORN) #MSWL

I turned 30 (!!!) last weekend, an occasion I'm seizing to share my #MSWL this year:
- sweeping YA romance
- โœจqueer magicโœจ
- savvy, commercial MG fantasy
- joyful queer & POC stories
- & POC authors with something to say
- emotional contemporary MG
- cozy af graphic novels

Very specific #mswl time: I've been craving a middle grade book about wishes (with any degree of actual magic). Agent friends, if you've got one of these up your sleeve, send it my way!

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

Always looking for fantasy with a nifty, compelling, unique kind of magic. One recent example: THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE. #MSWL

YA/MG fantasy where the magic is essential to the story. Can be beautiful, arcane, messy, inconvenient, whatever, but feels integral. #MSWL

Starting off #MSWL day with an evergreen one: contemporary YA with a weird/unreal twist (magical realism or Eternal Sunshine-esque light SF)
