Of course I rep a lot of amazing YA fantasy authors and always love YA fantasy, and am especially excited to find fantasy that totally upends my expectations, contemporary fantasy, and contained fantasy (a la a fantasy set on a cruise kind of thing). #MSWL
Amy Tintera @amytinteraAre there rom coms set in fantasy worlds? YA or adult? Just like, cute funny romances set in a secondary world. Does anyone besides me want this?
God, yes please!!! #MSWL
- contemporary, joyful, humorous slice-of-life stories about marginalized characters and their middle school problems
- commercial light fantasy adventures with extraordinary heart
- sister stories, competitor-turned-friend narratives, first crushes
Maybe I’ve been reading too much news lately, but… #MSWL: SF & fantasy where characters’ core political/policy positions evolve over the course of the story, not because they’ve discovered a *conspiracy,* but because they’ve educated themselves about communities and their needs.
High on my #MSWL list:
Contemporary Southern Gothic
Creepy Historical Gothic
Give me haunted manors, haunted woods, haunted histories
Add a dash of magic, even better!!
More YA urban fantasy
MG adventure and mystery and puzzles to solve
GN for MG and YA
These are just a few specifics, but I’m open to any sff! I love grand world-building and multiple POVs. Anything with the feel of a Robin Hobb novel or THE BLACK COAST. I can’t wait to get reading! #MSWL
Send me your non-Western epic fantasies like THE UNBROKEN and THE JASMINE THRONE. I’m particularly after Islamic and Middle Eastern fantasy that reminds me of home and I have a soft spot for tales featuring djinn. #MSWL
- Other diverse experiences, such as neurodiversity, mental illness, physical disabilities, chronic illness, or non-nuclear/“found” families
- Compulsively page-turning YA thriller with deep emotional engagement
- Immersive YA high fantasy that’s dark, twisty, and queer AF (4/6)
I would reaaaally love goofy, comedic adult fantasy in my inbox! I was just rewatching The Hobbit and I just love the quirky character dynamics within that epic adventure. Please! Sweep me away while making me laugh at dorks! #mswl
