I want a high concept, approachable rom-com so bad I can hardly stand it. #MSWL

I love rom-com women's fiction for my personal reading, so I'd love some on my list. #MSWL

I don't often say this, but I'm in the mood for a big, fresh, lush, overwhelming fantasy. I want to be swept off my goddamn feet. #MSWL

One of my weird obsessions is Wicked Tuna, a show about tuna fishermen. I’d love a novel about a career that is essentially a whole community lifestyle. See, eg. farming, fishing, etc. #MSWL

I know the market is tight with franchises and they're almost impossible to place, but goddamnit I love an espionage thriller. I want one. #MSWL

Guys, I want light and sparkly contemporary YA romance with an unusual voice. Something sunny and fun. #MSWL

Body positivity in YA or WF, with a character who actually *likes* exercise! We exist!! #MSWL

After a bit of brainstorming with @maria_ribas, I'd love to see some "women behaving badly" fiction. Give me your Miranda Priestly, your Cersei Lannister, your Bellatrix Lestrange. #MSWL

Maybe some *funny* historical fiction? That's a thing, right? #MSWL

Hey y'all, I'd love an action-adventure novel for kids a la Jumanji. Bonus points if it's body positive. #MSWL

I'd love a book on the history of dieting in America. When did we get this obsessed? #MSWL
