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

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

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

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…

I may have just spent the last 20 minutes gushing about the good ol’ marching band days with @_smromero. Send me those hilarious and fun band stories so I can send them to her!! #mswl 🎷🥁🎺

#mswl Zorro retelling, but female. She can be known as Zorra, or she's known as Zorro and the world has no idea she's actually female. I don't care. I am in need of a Zorro story, but female 🔥⚔️🦊

Help me through this sinus infection by sending me #mswl I’m desperate to read:

Female code breakers/spies a la BBC’s Bletchley Circle, THE ALICE NETWORK, or VELVET UNDERCOVER. Remarkable women in history who served great purpose in war. Mostly adult, but will take YA!
