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!
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
Laura Crockett ☕️ @LECrockettI'd love more friendship, summery YA to hit my inbox. Think Jenny Han, Huntley Fitzpatrick, Robin Constantine, Dessen, Rowell, Matson #mswl
I'd also love WF, a comedy of sorts w a woman in the modern business industry, like Kinsella, Rowell, Lucy Sykes, Elisabeth Egan -- #mswl

Laura Crockett ☕️ @LECrockettIt's MSWL Day, all! I'll continue my wishlist on this thread throughout the day.
In adult: quirky, fun, authentic romcom chick lit. I'm a sucker for traveling meet-cutes and office romances. #mswl
Tim Federle @TimFederleI would def watch a rom-com set at an airport during a Christmas blizzard. "He was Zone 5. She was 1st class. They've both got: BAGGAGE."
OMG sign me up for a manuscript that's like this! #mswl
