I LOVE THESE BOOKS. High concept, character-driven, bold, brilliant writing that explores Big Themes. Sentences you want to read aloud to the person sitting next to you. Also, 🖤 the novella length! Send me your tight speculative fiction. #MSWL
Charlie's Angels @CharliesAngelsKristen Stewart as Sabina is everything and more - don’t miss her in theaters November 15th! #CharliesAngels 💖
"No, I was the better shot" is like... the best line ever. #mswl with a character like this Sabina. Make her gay too.

Bit of a slow month for outside-of-work choices, but October’s #readinglist included:
- What if a Fish (ARC)
- Dear Haiti, Love Alaine
- The Gravity of Us (ARC)
- Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All
And let’s be real, they’re all #MSWL material.
sisi, destroyer of worlds ⚡️ @six6jiangi'm convinced that if anyone ever DID graverob qin shi huang's body, the resulting curse would end all life on earth immediately
um. why are 90% of high fantasy stories about european history again?
the next addition to my #mswl (this gives me dora and the lost city of gold vibes, a movie i thoroughly enjoyed and a movie that deserves an mcu-level franchise)
The Ripped Bodice @TheRippedBodiceIf I'm being completely honest the romance novel I most want to read right now is one about editors @bonappetit falling in love in the test kitchen
The Beccadook @RebeccaPodosMe: I would love a queer Jewish holiday romcom, universe, but gosh that’s specific
Twitter is a great place because you always find what you never knew you needed. #MSWL
Toni Rhodes @rhodestonib@NaomisLitPix Are u looking for kidlit?
Yes, certain genres! MG fantasy and contemp, YA contemp, and picture books with certain themes on my #MSWL
Me thinks #Biltmore House holds a lot of secrets... Would love historical fic based on its occupants & history. Perhaps something akin to Downton Abbey, something sweeping. #MSWL I wish a historian & an author would mary & write this for me—or you know, co-authoring is fine too.
Kelly Quindlen @kellyquindlenokay and now for some #PitchWars LGBTQ-specific posting... we got so much good queer shit!!! We asked *only* for queer-centric storylines and about 75 of the 82 entries we received came through. Everything from bi to trans to gay to asexual narratives.
