Nita Tyndall @NitaTyndallI’m watching National Treasure and I want more heist/treasure hunting books, especially YA (and queer.) It’s a genre we should revive.
(This is not a call for recommendations please do not respond with “have you read x”)
#MSWL since you’ll have a hard time convincing me National Treasure isn’t a 10/10 movie
MC: *frantically looking for something in their room*
Alex: *sends message that MC left it in the kitchen*
MC: *grateful but refuses to show it* ALEX! Aren’t you supposed to NOT interfere???
Alex: What’s the point of watching you struggle??😭
Humor all around #MSWL
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiOkay hear me out....YA novel w/ MC who somehow meets the FBI agent (or whatever group) assigned to monitor/watch MC (like how we all have one) and hilarity ensues. Agent is just trying to be helpful (like whenever MC is looking for something) and MC just so annoyed? #MSWL
MC talking to themself or someone else: I’d really love to get ____
Agent: *helpfully sends links to sites that sell it*
MC: LEAVE. ME. ALONE. ALEX. Or I’ll expose you!
Agent: I’m just trying to help 🥺🥺
Genuine friendship eventually ensues. They meet in person someday #MSWL

Diana ➡️ Occasionally Awarewolf @SuperdillinThe amount of people who are commenting that they'd watch a show about us being a wholesome family of jocks and their adopted nerd lass has brought me back from the dead I swear
There’s got to be a book in this somewhere, and I want it (thread) #MSWL
Samin Nosrat @CiaoSaminThough I’ve made an effort to change that over the last several years, I can’t buy what isn’t being published. I hope after reading this column, you’ll join me in asking publishers for more cookbooks from more diverse places, written by the people from those places.
On the same wavelength--give me a narrative that ties food with memoir. Or! A novel! That ties food! With story! More like Mistress of Spices, The Particular Sadness... Pardon the pun, but I'm ravenous #MSWL
I’m in like full “I need escapism” mode right now (& I’m really privileged to be able to check out sometimes). Desperately need someone to send me a fluffy and lighthearted YA contemp romance. Plot can be anything, as long as it has YEARNING and TENSION🥺 #mswl
Matias Alonso Revelli @matialonsorI usually take pictures of the ocean, this year I had to create my own pic.twitter.com/E3FTpGRZJV
In all honesty, I’m not even sure what I’m asking for when I say this but #MSWL
Oh to get a lighthearted YA contemp romance that is SO FILLED W/ *ROMANTIC SLOW-BURNING TENSION* that it makes ME want to spend the rest of my days in a secluded forest singing to the stars every night of my ~yearning~ until I’m 1 with the trees
Or something like that.
Pearl Low | 盧寶珠 @Fumi_chunI would love to see more stories rooted in Solar Punk, envisioning the future incorporating dope environmental/societal progression, vs. The white colonial, often racist & industrial aesthetics of Steam Punk.
I've never felt a connection to Steam Punk nor welcomed to the genre. pic.twitter.com/NkWIs57BLB
Ahhh #MSWL so SO hard. Anyone have this graphic novel ready for me?
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiA poly romance?!?!
Omg I have been WAITING to see more of this!!!!!
I was already sold before (magic + technology in one! Bi rep!) but now THE GAME HAS CHANGED. twitter.com/zrellor/status… pic.twitter.com/nIRAZzXjTZ
Please send me your poly romances! 😍 #mswl
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiRandom but what if there was a story about a society in which you had to pay for EVERY single meme/gif you use? Sounds silly but could be dark & have magic (bc why not?). A whole war/revolution fought b/w free the meme-ers and ppl should be paid for use of their image-ers.
Foyinsi @OyinAtiOmiFantasy (cont.):
-A DREAM acquisition: whimsical MG contemp fantasy with the clever wordplay of #AliceInWonderland and #ThePhantomTollbooth 😍
-Another DREAM: slice-of-life stories that take place in high fantasy settings (aka fantasy elements are facts of world¬hing more) pic.twitter.com/Bd6fP3gA6y
Putting this out there in the world again:
(Please make my “edit-a-book-with-the-WONDERFUL-plus-FUN-wordplay-and-whimsy-of-Alice-in-Wonderland” dreams come trueeeee (even if it’s YA)!!😭😭😭) #MSWL
I never thought I’d want anything to do with #TheCanterburyTales once I graduated but now I feel like a YA contemp/fantasy novel (loosely) inspired by/based on it (like structurally) could be really cool???
Guess after having it in 4+ classes, the brainwashing worked...
