Since I'm caught up on queries and subs to Jan 11th, I will take this time to say that for 2019, I'm on a major hunt for some diverse YA (in any genre). It's my #1 goal this year to find some books like those by Samira Ahmed & Jason Reynolds, or Neal Shusterman & Marie Lu #MSWL

Send me a YA as badass and edgy as @DeadlyClassSYFY. Preferably something lower on the fantasy scale, but who am I to tell you how to write the books? #MSWL

I’m on the hunt for a great contemporary #YA. I’m open to anything that feels fresh— and would love something like Samira Ahmed or Ben Phillips’s The Field Guide to the North American Teenager. #MSWL

#MSWL-- A main character obsessed with True Crime + a mystery. Preferably in YA?

Though, I would be open to the right YA SFF along the lines of @sabaatahir or @misterkristoff @AmieKaufman. #MSWL

I’m also on the hunt for #YA. Less SFF more contemp & thrillers. Open to anything. Male POV would be great (not necessary). Karen McManus, Jason Reynold, Patrick Ness, Neal Shusterman #MSWL
