Magic

Devin Ross @Devyross · 12 Sep 2018

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... manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/rach…

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

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.

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

Allison Moore 📚 @allisonm610 · 12 Sep 2018

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

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2018

More Middle Grade books, please! Anything with magic. #MSWL

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 12 Sep 2018
