#mswl I will tweet this wish until I finally get it:

Skins meets Harry Potter

Skins, to me, is hyper realistic. It's how teenagers or young adults actually act and see the world. They aren't chosen ones. But what if they could do magic, like in HP? That's the kind of world I want to explore.…

#mswl I want something with magic but with clear/simple rules ala Pushing Daisies or @CurtisCChen's Kangaroo books.

Then I want you to break those rules.

This is all about hooks. I love explaining Pushing Daisies to people. That's such a fun thing to discuss. But I also stories like "prophecy foretold three. But now there's a fourth" Add a delicious hook and then a break and you've got me, well, hooked.…

I would love to continue seeing Contemporary YA and Adult Fantasy. Little magic, big magic, show me whatcha got! #mswl

#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic

I'm also all about epic, sweeping fantasies. I'd love to see thoughtfully built, fresh-feeling worlds (bonus points if they contain rich magic systems), inhabited by complex characters. And I'm always excited to see fantasy from diverse voices! #MSWL

In #YA and #Adult I'd love to see magical realism (a recent fave is All The Birds in the Sky) as well as historical fantasy that throws me into an unexpected time. I have a weakness for anything Victorian or Jane Austen. Lastly: Assassins. Anything with assassins #MSWL

It's #MSWL day! A lot of my previous mswls still stand, but I'm particularly interested in seeing more contemporary fantasy. I want to see magic in everyday life!

MIDDLE GRADE. Gimme allll the middle grade! Contemporary middle grade, magical realism, fairy tales, fantasy. Anything that can described as for fans of Dianna Wynn Jones or Miyazaki will have me salivating #MSWL

#MSWL I LOVE literary/historical with a touch of folklore or magic like The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden or The Mapmaker's War by Ronlyn Domingue...…

Dying for more magical realism women's fiction, or #ownvoice women's fiction contemporaries #mswl

Kortney Price @kortney_price · 12 Sep 2018

Atmosphere is absolutely the key to my YA magical realism/paranormal/fantasy #mswl heart! I LOVE it when a story has that creepy, fog-in-a-haunted-graveyard feel to it.

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

And I like a little genre mixing, so send me your upmarket historical mysteries and psychological sci-fi horror and magical realism retelling of Hamlet. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

I love both magical realism that's grounded in a contemporary world and immersive magical realism that creates its own world. #MSWL

I love magical realism that feels full lived-in, like Savvy #MSWL
