a few very Specific #MSWL items i’m actively looking for:
- YA superstore
- an #ownvoices PB about sacheen littlefeather

i’m still digging my way out from under a pile of submissions (sorry agents!!!) but there’s always room on my #MSWL for:
- unapologetically self-indulgent, diverse #YA
- YA historical fiction, mystery, & fantasy
- YA contemporary, either dark & spine-tingly or warm & lighthearted

on a slightly related note, i would give my horse, my house, my whole heart for a YA novel about bandits #mswl

now that we’re in the swing of new year celebrations it’s just occurred to me that i would ❤️ to acquire a picture book, mg, or ya about lion dancing/lion dancers #mswl

i just started playing detention & it's a truly chilling game
not the least because the white terror extended forty years and killed nearly 4000 people

i definitely want to read a nuanced, well-researched YA set during taiwanese martial law someday #MSWL

have i ever told yall about miller?
her aesthetic is 1/2 of the lightly angsty mutual pining lesbian coming-of-age YA romance i want to read
( #mswl )

i’m still processing that most recent episode of superstore 🤭

(speaking of which, teenage antics while working at a retail chain is 100% on my ya #mswl now)
