I don’t even know what I mean when I say I want a YA or Adult SFF with the vibe of the “Rain On Me” video, but I want it #MSWL

(Also, at first I misheard the lyrics as “I’d rather be drunk but at least I’m alive,” and thought that was a bold truth)

#MSWL A story about a young, intrepid girl detective who *isn’t* killed off to spotlight her less competent male counterparts, whose story nobody asked for anyways 😒

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Apr 25

#MSWL send me a YA, NA or Adult book with the vibe of phenomenal actress Kristen Stewart in Ride ‘Em On Down

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Mar 29

Let it be known that I would love an adult or YA romance with this exact vibe👌🏼 #MSWL

I think quarantine is making my mswls punchier than usual...

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Mar 28

YA or adult or crossover, SFF or contemporary or romance, I don’t care; just send me your books starring queer, exceptionally charming disasters #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Mar 3

If anyone’s got an adult Harlots-style romance/fiction floating around, with all of the sisterhood and wigs and perhaps a tad less murder (not a dealbreaker), you know where to find me... #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Feb 28

My incredibly specific #MSWL tweets have born some SPECTACULAR results lately, so I thought I’d gather the stories I’d still love to see in one monster thread 🙏🏼

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Feb 25

Look, I don’t know how you could turn the The Svalbard Global Seed Vault into a YA novel about a teenager living at the edge of the world while helping to caretake seeds that are the literal fruits of many cultures, but if anyone’s got an idea... #MSWL…

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Feb 24

This seems as good a time as any to ask for your Adult or YA f/f romances with a Princess Bubblegum/ Marceline-esque dynamic #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Feb 6

Since my call for poisoned pastry shop stories has let to fantastic results, another #MSWL: please send me your adult/YA/crossover books starring a grownup Kristy Thomas from The Babysitters Club. You know, bossy, badass, wears baseball tees, detail-oriented, clearly queer...

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Feb 3

On the flip side, I’m still waiting for my dark Adult or YA book about a poisoned pastry shop #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Feb 3

Rereading my eternal fave NATALIE TAN’S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE reminds me how badly I want an Adult Romance/Contemporary steeped in family, food, culture, and a little bit of magic #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Jan 23

Somebody send me an adult romcom with a Fleabag-esque MC. I would like a legitimate hot mess of a protagonist, please! #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · 31 Dec 2019

As it was in 2019, so shall it be in 2020: somebody query me with a YA or NA about best friends as utterly fabulous and Eliot and Margo #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · 10 Dec 2019

I think my favorite underrated quality in MC’s (who aren’t cis men) is pure ambition, for good or ill or morally gray. Felicity Montague, Xifeng, Jude Duarte: I love them all. Which is to say, writers, send me your Slytherins 🙏🏼 #MSWL

Becca Podos @RebeccaPodos · 3 Dec 2019

An evergreen #MSWL: send me the YA or NA romance novel version of Hayley Kiyoko's "What I Need," please and thanks

I would date this girl in a heartbeat dude you don’t DESERVE her.…

Write me a book about a girl who sews her own sundresses to wear in her homemade lab full of poisonous plants, medical texts and animal bones. I would die for that girl 🙏🏼 #MSWL
