My #mswl hasn't changed - still wanting books about clowns & queerness related to trickster figures, still wanting all types of found families, still wanting MG horror & spoop, I would LOVE more picture book illustrators, & a comedic YA protag coping w ED (incidental, not plot).
Please send me the YA (or MG? Not sure!) on the #opioidcrisis. Possibly from the perspective of a student journalist personally impacted by it who to their core needs to DO SOMETHING about it?? I have a lot of feelings on why the kidlit world needs this; send it to me. #mswl
And to round out my Middle Grade #MSWL with some speculative items: chilling horror is always my jam, and I want to read your luscious, weird, wow-this-worldbuilding-is-fantastic fantasies.
I'm definitely looking to add to my MG list! I love some contemp. MG that deals with tough issues, MG fantasy, and MG sci-fi (yes, sometimes even the space kind here). I'm SUPER picky about MG voice though, so just send it in and see what happens! =) Maybe I'll love it! #MSWL
I'm consistently wishing for more Middle Grade novels in my inbox, especially ones based on myths and traditions from various cultures. I love learning about regional histories, real or not, through stories and lore. #MSWL
#mswl I’d also REALLY like to see more MG. A few recent favorites:
- The Science of Unbreakable Things by @taekeller
-the Kiranmala series by @Sayantani16
-A Good Kind of Trouble by @Leeseray
-Pie in the Sky by Remy Lai

#MSWL: #ownvoices #MG or #YA protagonists with chronic illness, pain, and/or a disability in a story not focused on that, and where no one dies--it's just a part of life. This kind of rep is important to me & I rarely see it in subs or published books.
So I found my witch writer, my pirates writer, and my ballet writer this year! WOOO!!! What am I looking for next?...
...Sci-Fi, gaming, and dystopian/futuristic sci-fi. I'm not a space opera person though! Sorry! #MSWL This goes for MG and YA! =)
