I am still getting a large number of books that revolve around murder. My first reaction was frustration, but honestly, after giving it some consideration I think this could be a communication failure on my part. I'm going to be even more explicit with my guidelines. (1/5) #MSWL

TW: weight / weight loss

Just a note that I’m not the agent for ‘weight loss makes the character prettier/more desirable’

I had a wonderful conversation with @nicyulo about dark books and she said something so astute:

‘I like dark, but I like hope. Don't put me in the pit without giving me a ladder!’

This is exactly what I’m looking for! #MSWL times infinity
