As always, I'm thirsty for a cocktail book. Every time I see a new deal for one I get a little sad. Cocktails with fun themes? For women? Stories about drinking? What's your twist? (see what I did there?) #MSWL

I want women's fiction with a strong romantic thread. Former romance authors maybe? #RWA19 #MSWL

I feel like I've been seeing so many dark books lately that I would like something lighter. Not chick lit light, but Other People's Houses or Crazy Rich Asians light. #mswl

I want books set in other countries that teach me about the culture, from more serious women's fiction #WF to fun fiction like Crazy Rich Asians. I LOVE learning about other worlds and cultures. #mswl

It's not lost on me that some of my top books of the year are #ownvoices Inspiring me to write up an #MSWL calling for more #ownvoices in my Query inbox: QueryMe.Online/Jessica_Faust

Carlisle Webber @carliebeth · 3d

I love settings that seem normal at first and then get really not normal as the book unfolds. #MSWL #WishListWednesday

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 3d

I want a contemporary romance like Samira and Frankie’s relationship in #LoveIsland You get me that and I’ll sign you ASAP #mswl

I just came across a YA book coming out that used Pan's Labyrinth as a comp. I LOVE that movie and Guillermo del Toro's work in general. Writers, if you use any of his films as comps and I am so in! Delightfully dark, beautiful visuals and fantastical! #MSWL

Kent D. Wolf @kentdwolf · 3d

Where's my 1980s-era Satanic Panic novel? #mswl

Joanna MacKenzie @joannamackenzie · 3d

A weekend reading series I attended reminded me of another #MSWL: adult best friend stories. Those relationships run so deep so what happens when they fall apart? Send me your friendships gone awry stories!

Auld Lang Syne Jennette @AlyssaJennette · 3d

A Lizzie Magie picture book would be cool! I had no idea who she was until about thirty seconds ago. #MSWL

#MSWL #LGBT How about hist fic where nobleman's WIFE finds a mistress and must conceal their love? 😍

I second this #MSWL. I'd totally also be down for a historical where a woman is married and knows her husband is in love with another man, but they're best friends, so she helps him hide it from the public, or vice versa. Read one like this once and am still in love with it.

#MSWL I’m watching Hallmark Christmas movies in July. Please send me some Christmas manuscripts.

Stepped inside @BankStreetBooks mere moments before the downpour began & well, there are worse fates than waiting out a thunderstorm in a bookstore. ⛈📚⛈

Update: read some books. ☔️📚
Related P.S. Standing #MSWL request for all your kids/MG/YA graphic novels! Illustrators, authors, and/or author-illustrators are all welcome. (I’m probably not the right agent for adult graphic novels/comics, tho.)

Natalie Grazian @NatalieGrazian · 4d

Anyone written a novel inspired by the real-life (horribly unethical) study featured in the ‘Three Identical Strangers’ documentary? Does that exist already? #MSWL
