Family drama is the weirdest drama. Give me a middle grade with a family like the Belchers on Bob's Burgers and/or a YA with one like the Bluths on Arrested Development. #MSWL

Question for the room: Why aren't there more picture books starring highland cows, AKA hairy coos? #MSWL

One my favorite books in high school was Catch-22, so you can pretty much throw any and all multiple perspectives and/or nonlinear timelines my way. #MSWL

Sometimes I forget not everyone grew up with a mother obsessed with true crime and serial killers. A novel along the lines of Netflix's MINDHUNTER meets THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES would be šŸ‘ŒšŸ™Œ #MSWL

I just want a manuscript that makes me as happy as free food does. #MSWL

I know it was originally a graphic novel, but still: Give me Netflix's "The End of the F***ing World" as a YA and I will love you forever #MSWL

I was psych minor before I learned I had to take stats. Give me a psychological YA that I can analyze for days #MSWL

It's 3 months until Halloween & a psychological YA about a serial killer is at the top of my #mswl

#MSWL like THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE but with manic pixie dream girls.

#MSWL #YA that deals w/ the racial/cultural/social implications of "passing" as white when the character identifies as otherwise
