This is weirdly specific (blame my subconscious) but I’d love to see a YA where the MC is dealing with the fallout of a parent’s very public arrest as a serial killer, and the true crime aficionados and podcasters who now hound their family. #MSWL

When I reopen my query inbox in January, can someone please send me a fantasy where a cat is the McGuffin? #MSWL

Adult Rom-Coms. Something fun and funny would make me really ridiculously happy. #MSWL

Forever and always, more retellings of lesser known mythology, fairy tales, and classical lit. Especially if it blends with an unexpected genre. #MSWL

YA Horror where the thing to fear is more than just a dude with a machete. Something chilling and lurking, like It Follows or The Babadook. #MSWL

I’d love a big YA fantasy set in a dazzling world I can get lost in. #MSWL

I love quiet magic, MG fantasy that showcases small wonders rather than earth-shaking feats. #MSWL

Send me all the creepy MG! Something eerie and spooky, but not too gory (more Coraline than It). Make me worry about the things that go bump in the night. #MSWL

Some things I will forever have a soft spot for:
-cinnamon roll protagonists who try SO HARD 😭
-quiet moments of heartbreak that sneak up on you
-found families
-fake dating
-strange, eerie magic
-beautiful, haunting writing

I just had a dream that I was reading a book about a heist at a high school reunion, like Breakfast Club meets Usual Suspects, and now I want it. #MSWL

Hey, remember how in the 90s we had a wealth of MG novels about haunted dollhouses reenacting murders? I miss those. #MSWL
