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

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

I truly adore royal romances as much as the next, but someone please send me a soapy, spite-filled YA contemporary version of The Other Boleyn Girl. Like, you want a Christmas prince/princess? You gotta fucking FIGHT for them. Possibly with your own sister #MSWL

Rebecca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Jul 10

I’m gonna need somebody to query me a YA Sci-fi set at an intergalactic royal court where everyone basically dresses in Guo Pei #MSWL

Can someone please write me a YA novel about a girl falling in love with a real life telenovela star

GASP #MSWL. Also this reminds me of when a telenovela star came into the Hollister where I worked in NM, and she was so gorgeous and glam that I slammed my hand in the cash drawer, but didn’t want to betray myself, so I rang her up as my crushed hand shook beneath the counter

For goodness sake, somebody PLEASE deliver my a plucky fun queer YA historical in the vein of Gentleman Jack #MSWL 🙏🏼

I've tumbled into a research hole about the Jewish-American Mafia, and...folks, this is so specific...but if anybody's sitting on an ownvoices YA set during the turn-of-the-20th-century and following a teen swept up by the Purple Gang, I'm your girl #MSWL

@RebeccaPodos So fierce.

Replying to @kristenpettit

I don’t know how to translate this look into book form but I want it #MSWL

This seems an appropriate IF TRAGIC night to reassert that I am always, always hungry for a YA Broad City, because this friendship? Legendary 💜 #MSWL

Rebecca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Mar 11

Hear me out: A Hamilton and Eliza retelling, but f/f. A revolutionary and a debutante fall in love—possibly in space—and it's complicated. #MSWL

Rebecca Podos @RebeccaPodos · Jan 11

Happy Friday, I have very particular #MSWL's today—Twitter, please deliver 🙏🏼

1. I'd KILL for a San Junipero-ish YA: queer sci-fi with high emotional stakes and a sweet ending
2. Hear me out, a YA Red Tent (midwifery and ancient rituals of womanhood) set IN SPACE

Rebecca Podos @RebeccaPodos · 21 Nov 2018

#MSWL a YA romcom set on Christmas Eve, except the mc’s are Jews so the holiday is really only incidentally mentioned, and they probably confess their mutual affection in a McDonald’s parking lot

Rebecca Podos @RebeccaPodos · 20 Nov 2018

Currently nerding out over Erik Larson’s meticulously detailed account of the last days of the Lusitania in Dead Wake, having flashbacks to my childhood obsession with A Night to Remember...

Anybody writing a YA or MG set aboard a slowly sinking ship? #MSWL
