Atmospheric novels are my jam. Transport me to your country, city, town, village. I want to see and smell the food, hear the sounds of the people, of nature, of the music, feel the fabrics, immerse myself in the world within the pages.

Just tossing this out for a Monday: I would love to see more lifestyle and food/diet books. I am a big cook, and would love to find more books in this area. #mswl

I’m really craving cookbooks that bring non-Eurocentric food into people’s home kitchens, or cookbooks or food narratives by BIPOC chefs that shine a light on food as the heart of a community or culture. #MSWL

I receive almost no cookbooks/food-related nonfiction, & I'd love to see more of those, too. #MSWL

Today I learned all about Lena Richard, a New Orleanian & the first Black woman to host her own cooking show (also a chef, restaurateur, entrepreneur, & cookbook author). My dad’s family has been in New Orleans since the 1800s, & I’d never heard of Lena. 1/2

I’d LOVE to rep a project about Lena Richard. Narrative nonfiction? A cultural history of Black New Orleans food that centers Lena? A bio of Lena through a lense like The Cooking Gene? If you’d like to take this on (are already taking this on?!), query me please. 2/2 #MSWL #BVM

Just thinking how much I’d love to get a Jewish YA that is NOT centered on the Holocaust. Give me a Birthright thriller!! A Camp Chi summer romance! A Hillel set-up gone wrong!! And the more food descriptions, the better. Please & thank you #mswl #amediting

Illustrated/graphic novel style non-fiction is something that I really want to see more of in my inbox!

Cookbooks and food are great, but I would love to see author/illustrator teams work on other topics as well like film, books, nature, science, pop culture, etc. #MSWL

Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖

Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl

In the @bookendslit #MSWL doggie pile! I want more graphic novels! I just read LILY THE THIEF and it was so good and I need more. twitter.com/jmcgowanbks/st…

I'm next in line on the @bookendslit #MSWL train chuggin' along 🚂 I'd love to find a novel in the vein of NATALIE TAN'S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE where food, community, and culture intertwine. Also, I'm a fan of AYESHA AT LAST, so a fresh retelling like this might catch my eye!
