Platonic friendship stories, a la The Half of It. Even if one side kind of likes the other, the friendship here is what really drove this story home, and the sacrifices and compromises they made in order to keep it and do right by each other. MORE please. ❤️ #MSWL

In addition to this, my favorite Romance tropes are best friends to lovers; enemies to lovers; we're stuck together and you drive me crazy, but I guess I love you trope; unrequitted lover who finds a better fit trope, and forbidden love that becomes a HEA trope. <3 #MSWL

Speaking of BFFs to lovers, did anyone ever make a marriage pact with their BFF when they were in high school? Like, “if we’re not married by the time we’re 40, we’re gonna marry each other.” Curious to see if anyone had this, and if they did, I want my BFF to lovers MS. #MSWL

#MSWL YA friendship breakups. Those were always worse than romantic breakups. Where’s my tearful BFF breaks?!

P.S. This movie gets me in the feels every time.

I could really use a The Bold Type story of friendship and romance written by and for the millennial generation of BOSS LADIES! Women who work hard, play hard, and love hard, supporting each other along the way, too. And a partner who isn’t afraid of boss &*+@#€$! ❤️ #MSWL

In adult romance, I’m really looking for phenomenal writing, but there’s definitely a few tropes I adore. One of which is the best friends to lovers trope right now! #MSWL Give me Friends with Benefits redone!

#MSWL MG Diverse and LGBTQIA+ voices. Middle grade is really some of the toughest years of my life, and anything that can help them realize it's okay to be different, is helpful. Love ghost stories and stories of crushes and friendship at this age.

#MSWL #LGBT How about hist fic where nobleman's WIFE finds a mistress and must conceal their love? 😍

I second this #MSWL. I'd totally also be down for a historical where a woman is married and knows her husband is in love with another man, but they're best friends, so she helps him hide it from the public, or vice versa. Read one like this once and am still in love with it.

I'm also still looking for The Bold Type comps! Female friendship and BA New Adult girls trying to take over businesses in style! #MSWL

I still desperately need a Women's Fiction or Romance or even just Contemporary like The Bold Type! Friendship and female bosses galore! And HUMOR! All the laugh out loud lines, please! #MSWL

Closed to unsolicited queries, but still hoping for YA Fantasy w/ strong female friendship, like Sucker Punch! #MSWL youtu.be/hvhDHJAbPg4

I'd love a dark/gritty high fantasy. Strong female MC, w/ diversity + powerful friendships. Wit, humor, and heroine who saves herself. #MSWL
