When I said I like books that are light & fun, that doesn’t mean they aren’t ripe with emotion. I love a good emotional roller coaster in a book. #MSWL

I love stories about people who need to rethink their dreams. We all have them & often hold on to them well past their expiration dates. I want the story of that person realizing maybe they need a different dream. #MSWL

I definitely read to the seasons. Summer is a desire for fun & light. Last summer I was obsessed with @kevinkwanbooks — right now it’s this. Which means my #MSWL is fun & light.

Also books on alternative health like CBD oils, essential oils and others. But it all needs to be different and new and the author platform for every single one of these ideas matters. #MSWL

Melinda Wenner Moyer's HOW TO RAISE KIDS WHO AREN'T ASSHOLES, a science-based guide that sifts through the conflicting advice parents get on the tough questions (What if my son is acting sort of sexist? What if my daughter makes a racially insensitive remark?) #MSWL

I want more on navigating life and career and motherhood and different and new parenting books. #MSWL Books like 10 Conversations to Have with Sons and those that address #METoo and books like...

A real resume and cover letter book so I don't need to redo what my interns have "learned" in college. One that really shows what employees want. #MSWL

Career books that teach those new to the job market what to expect aka Cynthia Shapiro's Corporate Confidential #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 5d

books on negotiation, but for career negotiators, not those negotiating for a job. I'd like books on diversity like White Fragility or So You Want to Talk About Race. I want books by women for women and especially for everyone. #MSWL

My submission guidelines for NF are a little vague I know. I was asked for specifics. bookendsliterary.com/submissions/ So...business books on leadership, coaching, personal development like You Are a Badass or the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***k, #MSWL

You know what I don't have enough on my list? Dog fiction. Preferably not from the dog's POV, but a book in which a dog plays a prominent role in the protagonist's life--#WF #S or other #MSWL

The other day I was asked to promise that when a friend got in her 90s I would make sure she got a glass of wine every day. This book #MSWL -- #WF or #S about a woman who makes a promise & now she must keep it.

I’m still waiting on a #metoo book — suspense, women’s fiction... #MSWL And, as always, my genres are women’s fiction, suspense, mystery, upmarket, literary, nonfiction. I’m sure I missed something. 😉

In suspense/thriller I’m still looking for LGBTQ protagonists — maybe a series featuring a law officer or domestic suspense? #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 15

And in nonfiction I want more women & AOC in business & personal development. I also want books like So You Want to Talk About Race #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Jun 10

Can I get this in a book? LGBTQ Friday Night Knitting Club please. #mswl nytimes.com/2019/06/07/nyr…

Reading moods also inform my #MSWL Current mood—fun women’s fiction.

I'm looking at my Goodreads to see which books I've read this year that I want more of. US AGAINST YOU, THE GREAT ALONE, THE GARDEN OF SMALL BEGINNINGS, WHEN WE LEFT CUBA, WHISPER NETWORK. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · Apr 30

And where is the LGBTQ domestic suspense I've been asking and begging for? I still haven't received it. Still waiting. #MSWL I'm also still obsessed with Alaska & would be thrilled to see more books set there.
