Funny

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 2d

In MG & YA, I'm focusing on high-concept contemporary that's sweet, funny, and layered, the kind of book that deals with a couple different kinds of relationship including the MC's feelings about themselves. #MSWL

I love my YA contemporary list and still WANT MORE! Something a little offbeat, surreal, defffffinitely funny. Maybe surrounding a small thing/event that gets blown out of proportion/snowballs... Peculiar communities, histories... Maybe urban legends?? #MSWL

Gonna drop a few #MSWL tweets as I’ve been going through my queries this weekend (sorry if you’re still waiting on a response—I’m getting there!) and trying to listen to what my gut is craving. I’m focusing on MG and YA, so let’s get started:

I would really love some character-driven YA fantasy that is both dark AND funny. Especially if there is a big eclectic cast and truly unique magic. Voicey characters but still high stakes and a world with details that awe, from city life to wildlife. #MSWL

I'm hoping to read some smart, funny, romantic YA stories soon. The ones that remind me of John Hughes movies. Writers, query me! I love young love. #MSWL

#MSWL YA Historical Mystery! Whether it's fun & funny (think MISS FISHER) gothic, noir, procedural or lawless... get at me!

Read this on my flight yesterday & loved it. Like The Science of Breakable Things, this kind of smart, perceptive, funny, poignant MG is top of my #MSWL. Thanks @CarolineAbbey!

Also still looking for my Bridget Jones meets Tinder romance! Make it real, make it funny, make it relatable, and make me laugh! 😊 #MSWL

#MSWL Any funny or light-hearted mss w/ BIG dogs included in substantial way? I never see big dogs, like my Great Danes, in books. The dogs are always those pocket-sized thingies.

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · Feb 6

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

Twisty, absurdly funny, fast-paced psychological thrillers, with #ownvoices teen POC, attacking ideas of identity, paranoia, plunder. Think 'Ripley' meets 'Get Out.' #MSWL #YA

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Jan 23

Been on a bit of a romcom kick for the past several months, and I’d love to see something cute, funny, smart, and sexy. #mswl
