Someone please send me a fresh take on True Grit #MSWL

Kate Sederstrom @sederstka · 23 Oct 2019

A latent dream of mine has been realized: a legitimate, professional page where I list books, movies, and shows I love, and stories I want to edit! #MSWL

General #MSWL stuff: magic/spells gone wrong, ghosts, resurrections, possessions, the end of the world scenarios, characters who get themselves into weird/messed up situations that push them to their emotional limits, & friendship stories, especially friendships that ended badly.

I want a Totally Spies-esque middle grade where a team of young female gymnasts secretly fight crime & jump in the chalk bin to go to their secret agent lair instead of a trash can at school #MSWL

Agents, send me stories with nonlinear narratives, please! I love the way foreshadowing can be done with non-chronological timelines, and how knowing the ending can make me all the more drawn into the story. #MSWL

IN GENERAL:
- Mother / daughter relationships
- Diverse stories by diverse creators
- And of course, stories that I don’t even know I want. I love to be wowed. (And proceed to ramble about how much I love something to @GraceKendallLit) 😉❤️

YOUNG ADULT:
- A fresh, self-aware diverse romance ala #JaneTheVirgin for teens
-A LGBTQIA+ story that doesn’t feature a coming out story
-A freshman year of college story!!
-A gritty, heart-pounding thriller rooted in character with a slow-burning romance

Elizabeth Lee @EleeReads · 24 Sep 2019

MIDDLE GRADE:
- #OwnVoices magical realism, reimagined folk tales, and sweeping, character-driven adventures
- Literary, contemporary stories about tween female friendship and the ins and outs of tweendom (if that’s a word)

PICTURE BOOKS: thoughtful, uplifting pbs that make me want to cry and also read to every child I know.

black girl romcom that is basically clueless x legally blonde except dionne is the star 🤷🏽‍♀️ #mswl

#MSWL: A modern day A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (one of my favorite books!) with a POC protagonist

Would love to see middle-grade fantasy, particularly inspired by MENA mythology #MSWL

Jenn Snyder @jasnyder92 · 24 Sep 2019

I’d also love historical fiction featuring badass real women—Zina Portnova, anyone? #mswl

Jenn Snyder @jasnyder92 · 24 Sep 2019

Really would love some queer horror--whether that's horror featuring queer characters, horror used to explore concepts of queerness, or both! Non-queer horror also welcome, especially that which hovers on the edge of suspense/horror genres #mswl
