#MSWL - I need a gripping, chilling YA mystery. A laugh out loud MG. And some striking voices!

And I’d LOVE a great upmarket adult mystery or romantic suspense!

Aside from graphic novels, I am still in pursuit of a magical-yet-quiet mermaid novel, so my inbox is a safe cove to any mermaids that would like to swim in. ✨🧜🏼‍♀️

I would love to find a suspenseful YA mystery/thriller that plays with form, chronology, or narration. It’s is a great genre to play around with social constructs, too, and I love subversion. (Think: Gillian Flynn) #MSWL

For YA, I love contemporary coming of age, fantasy grounded in reality, near-future dystopia, and high-concept speculative. Psychological thrillers that push the envelope. Truly twisty mysteries. Literary ghost stories. #MSWL

One reason I loved The Magicians is how it reminded me of the fantasy novels I loved so much as a teen - the ones that reflected my sadness, my sense of dislocation, in a magical world that transformed the MC. Send me that in YA & MG. #mswl

In YA, I want, as always, emotional and/or charming contemporary novels, particularly along the lines of FOOLISH HEARTS or THE LAST TRUE POETS OF THE SEA or ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS. Also always love a nerdy rom-com! #mswl

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife

So now that you have some concepts, let's talk books I have loved that I am #MSWL for writing comps/voice combs/vibeness

If you are writing a YA contemporary romance, the vibe I seem to hit best is this for #MSWL *Some of my favorite books are not yet published, but if you have read @keliswrites then she is in this group too.

Okay it's #MSWL time! Let's talk about some things I have been wanting/needing to add to my list.

First up has probably got to be my 2020 Jessica Fletcher cozy murder mystery YA book. Think Cher Horowitz vibe meets Jessica Fletcher all "I can catch a murderer if I want to" #MSWL #YA

Would love to see more MG/YA stories with Asian boy MCs doing things like falling in love, getting into trouble, standing up to bullies. (I wouldn't mind if they also invented time travel machines or fought monsters). I just want to see Asian boys be love interests!! #MSWL
