In this vein, I am always up for books that have interesting family dynamics with kids who have to figure out who they are in that context, especially in contrast to their parents. How they fit into the fabric and how they can also be themselves. #MSWL
Sami Isman @SamiIsmanAnd I can't say this loud enough: I'm itching for a true murder mystery! I want to play detective along with the characters, I want to try to guess who did it & be wrong & right & wrong & right #MSWL
+ SUPER important for the characters to be well developed, without being caricatures of detectives & bad guys - tell me a story that makes me invested in the characters not just the criminal act (all hail queen Tana French!) #MSWL
A link to other #MSWL items I've tweeted over the years.
Just went through and deleted some of them, because there were several wishes which were granted!✨This is why I post so many #MSWL items—because this silly hashtag actually works.☺️
Thing I’ve noticed: my YA list skews more girl, and my MG list more boy. I’d like to balance that, but still maintaining my overarching tastes: high concept, good plots, not-issue-books, joy and exploration and fantasy (both literal and just escapism). #MSWL
Sami Isman @SamiIsmanOn this #MSWL day I'm hoping for an adult female coming of age. Growing up as a girl is so much more complicated than as a boy, let's explore that!!
On that same note, relationships between mothers and daughters always fascinate me... think The Act or Sharp Objects (minus the Munchausen by Proxy) #MSWL
