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!

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

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

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!

Very specific: A, YA, or MG about a painter (or apprentice to, or child of) during the 1666 London Fire. Straight HF or hist fantasy #mswl

Currently listening to THE WEIGHT OF INK, which is about a female Jewish scribe in 1660s London. Talk about specific!

Send send send! 1660s England is FULL of amazing stories just waiting to be told. #mswl

I always have a case of wanderlust. Send YA/A, studying abroad or abroad for work, navigating a new place to call home, experiencing new cultures, etc #mswl #MSWLaesthetic

I’d love a YA w a protag whose life is out of the ordinary—focused on their music, dance, Olympic sport—pursuing dreams in that field #mswl

I'd love a YA/WF ms akin to BBC's Bletchley Circle -- intense, intelligent women coding, solving crimes, ending wars, and taking names #mswl
