I’d love to find more stories written by Jewish, Muslim, and Lantix authors in any genre. #MSWL

#MSWL - YA and MG stories with just that touch of magic. This is something that @EBain does so well!

I loved Hallie Rubenhold's THE FIVE. It was so deeply researched and written with such empathy. It's a great example of the kind of narrative nonfiction I love, though I also like more modern narrative nonfiction like THE SHORT AND TRAGIC LIFE OF ROBERT PEACE. #MSWL

All the queer mg and ya stories! I would love to find more f/f first crush or relationship stories that give me butterflies. But I'm also very much open to stories that don't include romance! Overall, I’d like to see more submissions from LGBTQ+ authors. #MSWL

#MSWL - in YA and MG, I love stories about how we're shaped by our families, and how we fit in with them (or not). I always love a good cry-worthy, heartfelt family moment in a book.

Re: ED I very specifically want a character who is already diagnosed and is not actively dying and is coping while they do Other Thing (preferably solving a mystery but ymmv). DO NOT send me your ED life or death books, I cannot. #mswl

MG + YA Magical Realism—I’m looking for the next The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. #MSWL

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 24 Sep 2019

MG + YA Historical Fiction/Historical Fantasy—I am a history buff myself + would particularly love to see stories which highlight a marginalized narrative that hasn’t been explored as much as the white narrative has in this space. #MSWL

Hi #MSWL day! I’m actively looking for more middle grade and young adult, as well as graphic novels and picture books. Here are a few things I’m especially eager to find in my inbox (thread):

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 24 Sep 2019

Now, I really want a PB that reminds me of Silly Songs with Larry. I am blaming this one on @Alex_Borbolla for her #MSWL of baby manatees.

I'd really love to see a space heist novel with a group of women doing the heisting. If you have a book that's like the movies Widows or Ocean's Thirteen but in space, please send it! #mswl

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 24 Sep 2019

MG + YA Graphic Novels. Some recent faves of mine: Pumpkinheads, Pashmina, and Making Friends. I’d also LOVE to work with someone who has a hybrid format similar to Brian Selznick’s works, which is primarily visual but not in a traditional graphic novel sense. #MSWL

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 24 Sep 2019

Mermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜‍♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL

I loved the creepiness and gorgeous writing of Mona Awad's BUNNY. It hooks you with a recognizable premise, and then it goes all WTF on you. Send me BUNNY books! #MSWL

Amanda Shih-Goel @amandashih · 24 Sep 2019

I'll also take narrative NF history! I have a particular soft spot for books that introduce me to inspiring figures I've never heard of within the framework of a notable or familiar historical moment #MSWL

Alex Borbolla @Alex_Borbolla · 24 Sep 2019

Broaden my horizons--send me something told with a fresh voice and from an unexpected perspective #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 24 Sep 2019

The Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley are like candy to me. If you send me something with a protagonist like her, I will be all over it. #MSWL

Alex Borbolla @Alex_Borbolla · 24 Sep 2019

Sibling relationships are weird. I like weird. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL day! I recently updated my #mswl on my website so I probably won't have that many new ones to add today, but you can check out my full list here: literallycait.tumblr.com/tagged/mswl
