My number one wish list item right now is heartfelt, voice- and relationship-driven contemporary MG. Recent faves like IVY ABERDEEN, LOVE LIKE SKY, and FRONT DESK gave me families, friendships, and crushes that felt achingly, oh so real. If you have it, I want it! 😊 #MSWL

I am currently reading BIRD BOX (the SCARIEST book ever omfg) and obsessively rewatching The Haunting of Hill House and I would literally murder a grandma to get an Adult or YA horror that exploits family dynamics #mswl

Send me your YA or MG GNs that capture the immigrant family feel of Kim’s Convenience! #mswl

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

Has everyone seen the trailer for *Mary Poppins Returns*? If not, it's an absolute must: bit.ly/2D7ARjL. I'd absolutely love a #novel that captures something of the vibrant imagination, color, humor, and family life portrayed here! #MSWL

Super voicey, dramatic, fun, sexy (or not!) stories that feature a big, nosy, means-well-but-talks-candid Latinx family. If you grinned at that, you know just what kind of family I'm talking about. #mswl

Is it still #MSWL day?

Someone send me an adult SFF novel centering a messy, diverse found family who have to overthrow the empire, or uncover a plot, or fight off invaders—but at the end of the day, you know they’re doing it to save each other as much as to “save the world.”

Meredith Bernstein @mgoodbern · 12 Sep 2018

As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!

It's #mswl day! Ok, so...

Amanda is in the Endgame @AmandaIsA_Ram · 12 Sep 2018

Just had a great brainstorming meeting with the gals so, to completely rip-off of @thejumbles: #MSWL stories about death & dying & grief, family, and hope à la THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END and "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"

Author/illustrator graphic novels for YA and MG. Something fluffy and with a good romance. I love found family stories and kids finding ways to resist corrupt power structures. A unique visual style and a distinct perspective is essential. #MSWL
