YA

Okay guys, I've been obsessed with #KnivesOut and I'd love to get a YA in a similar vein. I'm thinking more of the fun vibe than super suspenseful mystery. And because I am a trash shipper I'd love maybe some Marta/Ransom vibes with the characters. #MSWL

So, following up on my last tweet, an #mswl for bratty, sarcastic, nitpicky, competitive siblings who love the heck out of one another. #ya

The boyfriend & I have gone down a YouTube rabbit hole of Fountains of Wayne videos that segued into Mazzy Star & then REM vids & now we are weeping.

On that note, I am very much not a fan of romance or mushy books, but if someone could write an angsty, romantic YA that captures the swoony ‘90s energy of “Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star, well... that person should send it to me. #MSWL

Also give me some contemporary fantasy rooted in myth, lore and legends 1- #MSWL. I also specifically would love a Korean author to send me a YA contemporary fantasy w/the story of Jacheongbi as foundation! 2- #MSWL.

I'm ALWAYS looking for high concept, trope-filled #YA rom-coms. (Who else saw THE THING ABOUT HARRY??)

And I would give my heart for a #YA contemporary with all the feels of SEX EDUCATION--authentic voice, offbeat aesthetic, HUMOR, and a killer ensemble. #mswl

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · 2d

NGL I'm also consistently a sucker for...

📌Families! Siblings! Multi generational stories!
📌Witches + magic
📌Baking (bonus points: make it flirty)
📌Speculative twist? I'm there.

I'm always looking for:

✨A big hook + a super strong voice + gorgeous writing
✨Unique, immersive, fully realized settings
✨Genre blending/defying stories. Give me the weird, the ambitious, the unforgettable.

#mswl YA fantasy or contemporary where it's focused on the apprentice to the tiger handler (yes, this is a #TigerKing inspiration) or someone who escaped a tiger cult lol

This can all be for MG, YA, and Adult btw.

I'd love a spec fic with modern witches (small spells, hanging herbs, cats and comfy seats to read the grimoire). Think Sabrina bet less superpower and more everyday crystals, brews, etc. #querytip #amagenting
