I've been reading THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT and realized how few kids' books there are about chess. Then today I read that on this day in history in 1994 "Peter Leko became the world's youngest-ever grand master in chess." Wouldn't this be a fascinating MG novel! #MSWL #WednesdayWishes

Not only that—but I'm now open to picture books! My list is definitely children's focused in PB, MG, and YA -- but I'm selectively looking at Adult SFF and romance! #MSWL

I feel like every single query I read tonight had a car crash and dead people in it. Is everyone okay? Do we need to talk?

So jumping off last night’s tweet…my threshold for suffering is pretty low. I’d love to see less punishing stuff in my inbox. More escapist. Fanciful. Fantastical. Inventive. Romantic. Just loads less…death? MG/YA. #mswl

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

Just watched the second episode of The Passage and man, I would give anything for an MG with heroine like Amy. Or pretty much anything that could star @SaniyyaSidney. #MSWL youtube.com/watch?v=m--WB1…

And I'm also really craving some MG or YA narrative nonfiction. Something a middle grader or teen can really relate to--a true story that has resonance in their modern lives. A commercial story with curriculum appeal (not other way around). The 57 Bus was a recent fave #mswl

I am so eager to rep some really delicious middle grade. Open to pretty much anything though not a huge speculative fan, and I've already done time travel books so not into that at this time. I want lots of heart, I want to be surprised, I want to laugh or cry or both! #mswl
