#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.

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

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

#MSWL would love a Christmas romance filled with magic realism. Give me Santa, hidden secrets, wishes coming true, North Pole, lots of snow, whatever it is, let me feel the magic!

Magical realism in MG and YA, especially where the magic is tied to the setting or the season. Place as character is a fav story element for me #MSWL
