#MSWL send me your unlikely friendship stories (20 yo & 80 yo), friendship novels in general (need really high stakes though!)

#MSWL Exciting fantasy #yalit w/ totally new magical systems. With #romance or w/o. #MG too, if thoroughly explored & action-packed.

#MSWL like, totally destroy and rebuild the rules for magic/fantasy. But make it well-defined and clean. Put limits on it. High stakes ones.

I'm especially looking for some intensely romantic and smart NA. Any genre, high stakes, something new. (No abusive backstories) #MSWL

Brilliant world-building, compelling characters, high stakes & emotional depth. Don't have to like characters, but must be invested. #MSWL

Sarah Levitt @slevittslevitt · Feb 8

"High stakes stories about moral dilemmas within dark family secrets (i.e. The Light Between Oceans, The Nest, Honor)" @carlywatters #MSWL

New year, same #MSWL . But I do wish for: more teeth. More ferocity. Higher stakes. Lives in the balance. Unnormal books for unnormal times.

#MSWL High-stakes MG adventure w/ a portal from our world to another. Optional animal friends. Sassy/unique characters. A la Narnia but new!

I <3 urban fantasy, paranormal rom, but I'm super picky abt them. Fresh take on vamps, shifters, angels/demons. High stakes a must! #MSWL

I'd love to see more LGBT historicals in my inbox, esp. with high stakes and STRONG sexual tension. Take advantage of the time period! #MSWL
