book recommendation twitter—

anyone have recommendations for some ✨suburban✨ fantasy? like urban fantasy, except no detectives/cops, inner city, gritty stuff.

What are some books like that like...Desperate Housewives with magic?

Can I have this in kidlit with POC? I was convinced when I was a kid that nothing magical or even INTERESTING could ever happen for a Mexican kid in suburban TX like me, and I would have LOVED to have a fantasy novel prove me wrong #mswl

THIS!!! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 If a trope and/or trend has "already been done” but it's never been done by BIPOC authors, I want to read it 💜 This is forever on my #MSWL

Just re-watched Akeelah and the Bee and remembered how much I LOVED it as a child. Like, 10 yo me could not stop saying "pulchritude." It has its problems, but its hopeful message and diverse cast are things I NEED RIGHT NOW. If you have MG like this, please give it to me #mswl

I gravitate towards books and authors with a clear, definitive voice full of intensity and emotion, and showcase deep meaning and character work through commercial fiction tropes #MSWL 7/7

For all of the above:

-Diverse experiences and marginalized voices are essential.

-Books that uplift women and are intersectional are a must.

-I love both books fueled by rage, as well as books that make me believe in love and joy #MSWL 6/7

In young adult:

-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.

- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life

-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7

-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters

- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7

-what I'm calling the "rom dram," or romantic drama, with deep emotional conflict, rather than plot-driven drama

-social thrillers and horror w. commercial pacing, but have a deeper level of weight to them about something that occupies the social consciousness today #MSWL 3/7

I've spent the last month formulating my 2021 #MSWL (agented). I look forward to reading the great projects that this year brings! 1/7

In Adult:

-a big, gorgeous love story that rips your heart out

-voice-driven fiction for millennials and Gen Z that encompasses the social, romantic, and professional dynamics of the generation, preferrably with a light touch or dash of humor #MSWL 2/7

speaking editorially for a moment: this is one of the reasons that my general/historical fiction #MSWL includes "immigration stories that are not from Ellis Island."

ditto for Jewish stories--tell me a story that isn't about Ellis or the Holocaust (or the US, for that matter)

Ok... "Immune" by Jensen McRae, but it's a YA novel? Who's going to make this happen with me? #MSWL

I am drowning in PB submissions, so my #MSWL right now is NOVELS. Agents, send me MG & YA! (Definitely not a subtweet—I have gotten some DELIGHTFUL picture books but there’s a limit to how many I can buy at once! 😅)
