I always love books that play with structure, format, and narrative conventions. I'd love something that does for a YA or MG narrator what (stay with me) FLEABAG did for the fourth wall in TV. #MSWL
You'll have noticed that I've acquired a fair amount of queer YA lately and I am not! done! Always looking for more LGBTQ+ characters for both YA and MG audiences, and no, it does not have to be a rom-com! #MSWL
In MG, my list is fantasy-heavy, and, like, don't stop sending me MG fantasy because I love it--but I want to see more MG contemporary! Particularly one that will make me ugly cry on the train, and then carefully glue my heart back together. #MSWL
YA fantasy is evergreen, but what I want to see is where the genre is going next. A more contemporary direction, a new take on paranormal, twists and turns on some heavy-hitting elements like dragons, gods, monsters, the nature of story? Bring it to me!! #MSWL
Hi, #MSWL Day! Agents, as many of you know, I'm acquiring a range of YA and MG (open to fiction, narrative nonfiction, and graphic novels), and I'm still looking for a lot of the things I've tweeted about on this hashtag in the past! twitter.com/search?q=(%23M…
Rochelle Hassan @mustlovecorvidsdestined to be on opposing sides but if one of them were to actually “defeat” the other in a final way, it would be a crushing disappointment to both of them
Destined! Rivals! One of my favorite things to read. #mswl
Peter Knapp @petejknapp#mswl - a sweeping middle grade series with heart and humor! Related, but more specifically: a middle grade series with puzzle-y elements. And, always, middle grade with magic, especially cozy magic!
“Cozy magic” is my new eternal wish list item. EXTREME bonus points if I get a magical school with it. #mswl
Danielle Burby @DanielleBurbyWhat I absolutely love about this trend of Tidying Up, Queer Eye, and Great British Bake Off is that it moves us away from cynicism and cutting people down into a mode of kindness, support, and lifting each other up. So so much more of this moving forward please.
This is a big #MSWL mood for me in 2019! Let’s have some warmth, hope, and good genuine fun.
🦌Elle🎄Grittymas Is Coming🎄Gato🦌 @ellle_emI want more small stories in epic settings
What I mean: fantasy worlds, galaxy-spanning space confederacies, magical kingdoms, living cities, etc. etc. etc. as settings but a focus on small stories within those settings
Eternal #MSWL! I love a different genre’s story in an SFF setting—especially if the author has cleverly teased out some smart interactions between the two.
You all know I love fantasy. Looking for things that feel a bit out of the box now. Contemporary fantasy, maybe? YA urban fantasy? An update on Harry Potter? I don’t know; surprise me. #mswl
