1. #MSWL Sweet high school Rom Coms. I can't get enough of these! Hate to love, best friends to lovers, geek with hot guy, best friend's older brother, fake dating--you name it, I want to see it. I also love when there is a family component.

Really in the mood for something similar to Blood Red Road by Moira Young. #MSWL

I want submissions with strong women/girls, but strong doesn't necessarily mean "kickass" all the time. There are so many ways we show our strength--whether it be physical or mental. #MSWL

Did ya'll know that I love Kdramas? Some favorites are Boys over Flowers, You're Beautiful, 49 Days, Shining Inheritance, Coffee Prince, and Dream High (but I've enjoyed many others). Please send me anything in this vein #mswl

#MSWL slow burn romance is my favorite type of romance across YA and adult.
