Sam totally called it in 5x13 Schitt’s Creek. He said it was basically exactly how his went with me 😂😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

David and Patrick are LIFE. Give me David x Patrick vibes in all your love stories! #mswl

(2) Gilded Age/1865-1965 histfic a la AMERICAN DUCHESS, THAT CHURCHILL WOMAN, & Downton Abbey, with “dollar princesses” & other marriages ft. wealthy, influential American women in European nobility/royal/peerage society. (MC can be the heiress or close confidant.) A or YA.

I’ve been in such a Mood for two very different kinds of books:

(1) Southern fiction a la Kristy Woodson Harvey, with warmth, setting as character, female friendships and/or multigenerational families, and secrets/hardships that come to light. Can be A or YA!

I loved THE BIRD & THE BLADE, now I’m reading Elizabeth Bear (RANGE OF GHOSTS) for the first time—and I think what I’m loving most about these fantasies: Khan. Great Khan, Genghis Khan, Mongol Empire, Song Dynasty, Silk Road, history across the steppes & China—I want it. #mswl

LRT(s): I adore romcoms! Recently flailed over THE FLATSHARE (5⭐️) and I’m so pumped to start THE FRIEND ZONE and AYESHA AT LAST. Got a romcom like those? Check out my #mswl (scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…) and #MSWLaesthetic for more!

Met @kristywharvey today at my library and she signed all three of my books! Agents can be fangirls too 😉

Y’all, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love contemporary women’s fiction. If you can write sisters like Kristy, send it my way! #mswl

Laura Crockett @LECrockett · 17 May 2019

So now that you've seen DON'T DATE ROSA SANTOS by @Nina_Writes (& other books by my authors), maybe buy a copy and read it and look at my #mswl and get a sense of what I enjoy 😉 scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…

Historical is hard in YA and Adult but ohhhh, I love it so. Tell me a great story of under-studied women, events, and areas of history. Give me spies and queens, codebreakers and slice of life, THE ALICE NETWORK and OUTRUN THE MOON. #mswl

Laura Crockett @LECrockett · 22 Apr 2019

I’m focusing a lot in Adult as well—women’s fiction, fantasy, and historical. With WF I want to see upmarket book club fiction (ELEANOR OLIPHANT) and romcoms (MEET CUTE). I want lyrical, historically-inspired fantasy (EMPIRE OF SAND, Juliet Marillier, anything witches). #mswl

Laura Crockett @LECrockett · 22 Apr 2019

YA romcoms are my jam. Always have been. I want to see more STEM, fun jobs, and unique hobbies. DON’T DATE ROSA SANTOS, WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, ROYALS, and ALEX, APPROXIMATELY are perfect examples of voice, humor, and substance in contemp YA romcoms! #mswl

I love laughter, warmth, introverts, character-driven narratives, perseverance, being transported to different places and times, gorgeous and grounded world-building, heart, friendship, and family.

Here’s what I’m seeking this year! #mswl scribblesandwanderlust.com/2019/01/01/msw…
