#MSWL I would love to get a magical realism book. Something like SAWKILL GIRLS, or WICKED DEEP.

Renewing my #MSWL for atmospheric reads, and magical realism.

I’d love to have a YA set in Ancient Egypt. It can be historical, or a YA fantasy with magic, and gods and all the details. This is something I’ve always wanted to read! Send me some! #MSWL

Magical realism is something I love overall and would like to see more of, both in YA and adult. Would love to have some Latinx voices in for this one! #MSWL

I'd love to see some adult fiction set in the seedy, gritty underbelly of an 18th- or 19th-century city. A super immersive setting with magic? A mystery? Both?? Whaddaya got for me #amquerying writers? #mswl

Agents—My new year’s resolution is to acquire a voice-driven #MG (I like contemporary and magical realism!) #MSWL

#MSWL. Also love Middle Grade stories addressing need for kindness, showing characters overcoming physical and mental obstacles and showing inclusion. Love messages against bullying, being courageous and taking risks.
Welcome stories set in school, magic worlds and at home.

Starting 2019 with this #MSWL: I will drop everything to read a fresh, inclusive Urban Fantasy! Give me a city with magic woven into each building and street!

5/ #MSWL: Fast-paced, high-stakes YA fantasy, specifically with unique magic systems and fresh worldbuilding. I'm particularly attracted to lyrical prose, and recent YA favorites include Leigh Bardugo's King of Scars and Laini Taylor's Muse of Nightmares.

#mswl 2019: A great historical mystery with mythology and magic such as SERAFINA AND THE BLACK COAT (7/13)

And I always have room for more brilliantly crafted middle grade. My big loves are contemporary, historical fiction and magical realism. #mswl

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult fantasy w/shocking connections between characters and setting, intricately explored in the culture and through the magic. Think BROKEN EARTH TRILOGY by N.K. JEMISIN.

Naomi Davis The Caffeinated @NaomisLitPix · 31 Dec 2018

OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF with rich romantic layering. Give me complexity and stakes laced between both the romance and the fantasy conflict. Show me how magic and love work in tandem. Show me passion across galaxies. Light me on fire.

15) Light Adult fantasy. Show that thinks don’t get less magical after childhood. Comps like Practical Magic, Garden Spells, and The Night Circus. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · 21 Dec 2018

5) Send me your quiet, lyrical magic. Your tales of discovery and wonder. Give me a MG bedtime story that paints my dreams. #MSWL
