#MSWL Remember those YA romantic dystopian books from 10-15 years ago? LEGEND, SHATTER ME - I even count HUNGER GAMES here. I'd LOVE to see some new, fresh romantic dystopian!

(No plague-based books or books where the world is dystopian because it's misogynist, though, please.)

#MSWL I’m also always on the look out for:
✨genre mixing projects!
✨gap area projects!

These are books that do fun things w/genre boundaries and/or hit "gap" areas of the market: voice-y lower MG, adventurous (or romantic) upper MG/lower YA, upper YA & New Adult.

#MSWL I’d love some fun, voice-y school dramas both MG and YA. Kids scheming things, kids getting away with things, kids having adventures on fieldtrips gone awry!

And I'm happy to look at projects with unusual formats like The Tapper Twins series.

#MSWL Looking for something that gives Jennifer A. Nielsen's THE FALSE PRINCE vibes, though this doesn’t have to be fantasy.

I'm more thinking of something with an interesting, tightly bounded setting, easy to read but emotionally charged prose, and a twist.

#MSWL I’d love to see some YA, NA, or Adult projects set on the set of a non-U.S. TV show/movie!

Probably not reality show based (unless the show has a an all BIPOC cast) so more that the set is just the setting w/the heart of the story elsewhere.

#MSWL Would love some nouveau riche casts in material too! Probably most interested in international settings for Adult work, though happy to see U.S. settings too especially in YA.

MG, YA, NA/Adult welcome. Genre mixing or SFF w/same vibes welcome! Would love BIPOC casts!

#MSWL Just binged Arsenal Military Academy (the C-drama) & I'd LOVE to see stories w/similar weird-but-they-REALLY-work, squad goal friendships!

Happy to see romance/fantasy/historical or other genres here! Would love boarding school settings, big friendships/staked adventure!

#MSWL In this I'm also including worlds that blend tech and magic, so this can include a mash-up of fantasy & sci-fi too!

#MSWL I'm a sucker for epic, historical feeling fantasy worlds, but I'd love to see more epic, modern feeling secondary fantasy worlds and worlds that gorgeously blend historical & modern too!

High stakes & romance get my attention well. MG, YA, Adult/New Adult all welcome!

#MSWL I'd love an Adult/New Adult Harry Potter—witches, wizards, possibly academia (without the JK Rowling baggage of course).

Like THE MAGICIANS but even more accessible and with a strong romance.

#MSWL In MG in particular, I'd love to see more urban fantasy adventures like Percy Jackson featuring casts of really loveable characters in really epic situations.

Upper MG, YA crossover, and YA like LEGENDBORN is definitely welcome too!

#MSWL I'd love a non-Western✨ vampire ✨book.

MG, YA, & Adult all welcome.

For MG: likely adventure/fantasy based w/magic and/or non-Western mythology.

For the rest: fantasy set in a non-Western world w/sharp stakes & a romance.

Could be 1st or 2nd world fantasy.

#MSWL In YA (& MG), more "study/adventures abroad" books featuring teens in non-American locations, especially if the locations are non-Western and the stories star really robust casts of BIPOC characters.
Think ONE TRUE LOVES, I'M NOT HERE TO MAKE FRIENDS, & LOVEBOAT, TAIPEI.

#MSWL Basically any rom-com or romantasy (adult, new adult, or YA) that can give me CRAZY RICH ASIANS vibes.

And I'm also looking for YA in *any* category that can do the same.
