Two weeks since I finished #NeflixKingdom, and I STILL can't stop thinking about it. I'm so in the mood for a YA fantasy with sociopolitical commentary, a lush non-Western historical setting, well-rounded characters, and ZOMBIES. Lots and lots of zombies.

oh ALSO ALSO a take on metoo with a cheeky twist, preferably starting qpoc that examines the intersection of identifying with more than one marginalized group #ya #contemporary #mswl

#mswl #ya #ownvoices gimme all your monster books. Especially monsters based on non-western legends and folklore. The wendigo! Chupacabra! La llorona! I want to feel uncomfortable and scared and uncomfortably excited to be scared

Sony’s Stage 6 Films Plots Sequel To Sundance Sleeper ‘Searching’ starring a @CAAM favorite, John Cho. bit.ly/2Z15mO9

In light of this amazing news, I'd love a gritty, contemporary YA thriller that, like the excellent film SEARCHING, utilizes the unique quirks and challenges that technology/social media have introduced into our lives #mswl

An end of day #MSWL: I would love middle grade or young adult novel that takes a no-holds-barred look at colorism in marginalized communities and the damage it does to the people in them. #YA #MG #Children
