I love to be hit with the unexpected, like the first paragraph of the Murderbot series by Martha Wells
Need more Adult and MG.
Love NF too!
Being very picky with everything but especially YA, although I never say never!
There’s not room to hype all of the interesting and underrated YA NF out there, but I’m open to anything. Comps include AMERICANIZED: REBEL WITHOUT A GREEN CARD; THE BELOVED WORLD OF SONIA SOTOMAYOR; BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE MAKING OF A LEGEND; GIRL CODE; #NOTYOURPRINCESS; and SHOUT
On the older side for nonfiction, I'd love nonfiction that was more than just what we currently have. I just read ATTACHED (so good) and I am thinking, wow if only I had read this as a kid. Where is the hip #YA NF that makes it cool to know about marketing, psychology, etc #MSWL
Rounding off my #MSWL tweets today, in NF I’m looking for the following topical themes:
-cultural criticism (e.g. gender, race, sexuality)
-YA books about the +/- effects of the beauty industry
-parenting, reproductive health, physical wellness
-More nonfiction in MG and YA, esp science, art, history, etc. NF graphic novels are great here too.
-I'd love to see more mysteries, in MG, YA, and adult. I'm really into Veronica Speedwell and Veronica Mars.
-More intergenerational stories in MG, YA, and SFF. #MSWL
I’m also really hungry for science and math non-fiction in middle grade and YA. My picture book list is really strong in NF these days and I want older kids to be inspired by math and science, too! #mswl
#MSWL this gonna be weird but is anyone working on a narrative NF book about poisons that weren't used for poisons? Like the poison dresses?
I have a weird fascination those time of things. #mg #ya only
carlydraws @carlydraws@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?
A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl
#MSWL: I’m acquiring YA nonfiction. Looking for #NF on topical, relevant themes for teens that work for both report writing and pleasure reading.
Books in the vein of: The Dozier School for Boys by Elizabeth A. Murray, You Do You by Sarah Mirk, and Body 2.0 by Sara Latta.
MG or YA NF from a scientist, doctor, engineer, etc. translating all your coolest research into something that will give young readers a leg up on saving our ship and assure them there are adults fighting the good fight right now #MSWL
#MSWL Smart and sexy rom-coms (I want to laugh and fall in love!), epic family dramas, gritty and contemporary YA, true crime that reads like a suspense novel, anything food related (f and nf), pop science and history
In kidlit more broadly (PB-YA) I am on the hunt for more NF that teaches and inspires in a fun accessible way. I lean towards non-fiction that focuses on a specific event or person, that really digs in to give us a clear picture as opposed to broad themes #MSWL
Happy #MSWL day! I just watched ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE on Netflix and would love to see a fun foodie #YA #ms like that which delivers big on ethnic flavors amidst a fun #RomCom setting. I’d also love to see more #NF or graphic NF aimed at middle graders!
Hadas Gold @Hadas_GoldAlan Turing never got a NYT obituary until now: nyti.ms/2WcwjNf
#mswl nf for mg or ya - his life, his work during ww2, an honest look at his death and the repercussions of anti-homosexuality laws, and how Turing's work still influences compsci today.
