And a couple of evergreen #MSWL for me: Fun and sexy rom-coms! Thrillers that surprise me and dissect genre norms (think SADIE that plays with the true-crime podcast)!

I am a big reality TV fan and am searching for books that get the complex interpersonal dynamics right. Show me behind the scenes drama, the truth about on screen chemistry and dive into the nitty-gritty of the push and pull between reality and Reality. #MSWL

In all ages and genres I am seriously hoping to see more books starring mc's with disabilities. #ownvoices especially encouraged. I want to see stories that show the full range of life and experiences--joy, accomplishments, ambition, sadness, friendship, love. #MSWL

I would love to see a YA (or upper MG) that focuses on the teen activist movement. Whether contemporary or historical, I want to see honest portrayals of how teens organize and mobilize. #MSWL

In kidlit more broadly (PB-YA) I am on the hunt for more NF that teaches and inspires in a fun accessible way. I lean towards non-fiction that focuses on a specific event or person, that really digs in to give us a clear picture as opposed to broad themes #MSWL

MG that thrills me. Bring me action, friendship, magic, fast-pace and fierce characters #mswl

My latest #mswl is for the friendship dynamics shown in Derry Girls. Earnest, unique individuals who shouldn't work together but somehow do, who are outlandishly funny, obliviously teen, and above all have each others backs.

Twitter please send me the novel equivalent of One Fine Day (song not movie): peppy, hopeful, swoony #mswl

Other songs as #mswl I'm craving: Goodbye Earl meets Thelma and Louise--women who have each others backs against violence and patriarchy

Still looking for a reality dating/other can't-take-your-eyes-away trashy reality show novel. Give me escapism! Fist fights! Swoony Romance! Murder? #mswl

I love stories rooted in obsession, fixations, wild fascinations. Sometimes the best way to connect to a character is through their most firmly held interests or hobbies #mswl

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 12 Sep 2018

My biggest #mswl of late is a fresh take on a YA thriller. Give me a new format, big stakes, characters who take agency over their circumstances and flip all expectations (think SADIE or GENUINE FRAUD)

Please send me your smartest and darkest psychological suspense #mswl

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 6 Jun 2018

I really want to see more rom-com's in my inbox! Smart, funny, with an emphasis on well developed characters. #mswl

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 12 Sep 2017

Would love to see more novels about cults, or novels starring protagonists with cult-like personalities #MSWL

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 12 Sep 2017

Also dying for smart and laugh out loud rom-com's (in book form obviously) #MSWL

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 12 Sep 2017

#MSWL YA/MG mysteries featuring an ensemble cast!

Happy Nellie Bly's Birthday! Send me all your "nosy kids make great investigative journalists" manuscripts #mswl
