I know the market is tight with franchises and they're almost impossible to place, but goddamnit I love an espionage thriller. I want one. #MSWL

Guys, I want light and sparkly contemporary YA romance with an unusual voice. Something sunny and fun. #MSWL

Body positivity in YA or WF, with a character who actually *likes* exercise! We exist!! #MSWL

After a bit of brainstorming with @maria_ribas, I'd love to see some "women behaving badly" fiction. Give me your Miranda Priestly, your Cersei Lannister, your Bellatrix Lestrange. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 6 Feb 2018

Maybe some *funny* historical fiction? That's a thing, right? #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 6 Feb 2018

Hey y'all, I'd love an action-adventure novel for kids a la Jumanji. Bonus points if it's body positive. #MSWL

I'd love a book on the history of dieting in America. When did we get this obsessed? #MSWL

I want a magical novel where magic informs the plot, but isn’t the plot. #mswl

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 2 Jan 2018

I'm not proud of it but I'd be into a YA novel about a shitty teenage Youtube celebrity #MSWL

Huge #MSWL for a fictional Dirty John story because that podcast was bananas.

I want a "fun-ance" finance NF book for kids. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 18 Sep 2017

I'd like some sweet, somewhat quiet, women's fiction that will fill my heart with joy and warmth a la HOW TO FIND LOVE IN A BOOKSHOP #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2017

A procedural adult mystery would be just fabulous. #MSWL

Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenE · 12 Sep 2017

I voted! All the cool kids are doing it. #MSWL for politically engaged fiction for kids.
