I know I’m a month late, but I just watched Set It Up and, holy crap, I have missed rom coms so so so much. It was everything I’ve been missing on screen. Also, female friendships and a kickass female boss? GIVE ME ALL ROM COMS LIKE THIS

And on that note, I need a rom com to represent. Smart characters, little bit of mayhem, romance that makes me swoon, lady friendships, lady bosses, diversity. All things that make me smile and happy. If you have it, please send it! #MSWL

#MSWL an incredibly lush, romantic YA fantasy; novels with "evil boyfriends" (think Damon Salvatore); romantic comedies; millennial focused non-fiction, ripped from the headlines historicals

I'm so glad super fun RomComs like Netflix's Set it Up are making a comeback, and I'd love to see some in my query box! #MSWL

I’ll be coming through queries this week and I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED a contemporary please. No rich kids, no white suburbia. Forget the standard girl-meets-boy.

I want the mother/daughter dynamic of EMERGENCY CONTACT. A black/POC Kara Thomas. A raunchier-voiced rom-com #mswl
