YA romcoms or YA contemporary with romantic elements. Especially if they're queer! Think Heartstopper, Young Royals, You Should See Me in a Crown, I Kissed Shara Wheeler, etc. The cuter and fluffier, the better.
Monthly reminder that I'd love more of the following stories:
- Southern Gothic
- Small town/isolated settings with a darkness to them and how characters deal with it. Think Sawkill Girls or Burn Our Bodies Down
- Queer found families with various dynamics.
Some #MSWL things I've been craving in my inbox:
🌈 Queer MG, especially first crushes
💙 Found family dynamics
🌳 Small towns/isolated settings especially with a speculative element
💀 Southern Gothic
♣️ Stories that involve tarot/playing with fate
❄️Megan❄️ - Closed to Queries @Megan_ManzanoI will open back up to queries tomorrow! 🥳 In preparation, I'd like to do a #MSWL thread about what I'd love to see in my inbox.
As always, I'm on the lookout for queer representation. I'd particularly love to see:
1. More identity discovery/first crushes in MG
2. Sapphic YA rom-coms
3. More queer works by BIPOC authors
4. Queer stories w/ happy endings
5. Supportive queer found families
Rachel Bass @bachelrassAggressively not thinking about This Week right now, but you know what I would love? Explicitly queer Shakespeare retellings. Sapphic Macbeth. Midsummer but queer and poly. Is this...is this my brand?? #mswl
Omg yes please!
Countdown #MSWL Day 2:
Queer rep for days especially by authors of color.
I'd love a rom-com, a story that follows queer teens having to stick together, and stories where queer characters get a happy ending.
I'd really love to see more MG, more queer rom coms, more contemporary fantasy or contemporary with spec elements.
It's been harder for me to get sucked into higher fantasy.
Megan Manzano 🇵🇷 🌸 ~ Closed to Queries @Megan_ManzanoI'll be closing to queries today at noon EST.
I will reopen in May and will be participating in DVPit.
If you have any of the following in MG or YA, I'd love to see it:
- Queer rep, especially a queer rom com
- Found families (bonus points if it's like Cheer on Netflix)
- Latinx voices
- Contemporary fantasy or spec fic
#MSWL for the new year pt 2: feel good YA romance, especially if it's queer!
First crushes gone right, awkward pining, best friends to lovers, fake dating turned actual dating, I hate you but oh wait, we're actually similar af and I may like you.
ALL OF IT.
Happy HollZABÉs ⛄️🌲❄️ @ZREllorI want more queer romances with problematic morally-grey characters, I want queer Zukos and queer Jude/Cardans and queer Salvatore brothers. I love cinnamon roll queers but I hate the feeling that queer characters NEED to be morally upstanding to exist in YA
I want these stories now. Please and thanks!
sage 🚀 @sageshelvesListen, I just need more queer princes in YA.
Where is my soft prince falling for his bodyguard? Where is my tough take no shit political prince that falls in love with the wrong diplomat just before his parent(s) declares war?
More queer princes in YA 2Kforever
