Wednesday morning #MSWL! I’d love to see a YA version of @netflix’s “You”...creepy stalker love interest and the exploration of the people we become on social media. And a little murder couldn’t hurt. 😬

[2/2] I want books that encourage kids, especially girls, to speak up when something isn’t pleasurable and learn about their bodies to find out what does feel good. If you haven’t watched this show, run don’t walk to your TV @netflix @sexeducation #MSWL

[1/2] I watched @sexeducation on @netflix and I’m in love with how tender, funny, and nuanced this show is. I want to see a YA novel with a premise like this. #MSWL

Not a huge fan of a damsel in distress (unless she eventually changes), so please send me all your strongest heroines! #MSWL #amagenting #YA #MG

One specific #MSWL for Christian #YA: I live in a small southern town, and I'd love a narrator with that undercurrent of commentary on everyone else and their "kin" who learns the hard way that the crazies around her are HER PEOPLE. Be sure to include a covered dish scene.

For #contemporary #YA, smart, humorous, introspective first person is more likely to draw me in, but I can fall in love with a sweet, dreamy voice, too. My tolerance for sap and cliche is pretty low, so be very careful with those. #MSWL

I DO love allegory, but I'm very particular about HOW it's done. Rich, gently tended symbolism is a must. Be clear, but not obvious; be original, but true to the source. #MSWL #CF #YA

I have a hankering for some #YA and #MG fantasy and science fiction! Send me all the whimsical or dark stories this way! #mswl

Where are all the girls and/or queer kiddos who are really into sports in kid lit? The narratives about relationships with your body and your friends and your crushes, through the lens of your athleticism and relationship to sports? #MG and #YA! #mswl

Though I do love fantasy, I don't usually go for stories that are heavily focused on action (huge battles, wars, etc). If there is any political upheaval going on, I need excellent character development and voice to balance out any action. #MSWL #YA #MG #amagenting #amreading

Would love to see a reimagining of the modern day royals. Princess submissions are always welcome! #MSWL #YA #MG #amagenting #amreading
