I've been really in the mood for lyrical writing lately, especially in fantasy #MSWL

And I'm still looking for a soccer team book. Would prefer 2-4 main characters who are on the team and POV characters. I'll settle for any sport if soccer isn't available. #MSWL

This is general, but I want some laugh out loud middle grade #MSWL

Over the top drama like that found in BOYS OVER FLOWERS and SHINING INHERITANCE. #MSWL

A magic school book similar to IN OTHER LANDS. Give me your queer and/or POC protags, your questions of morality, how society should function, fluid gender dynamics, your charming creatures, painful growing up, learning to belong swoony romance, and enduring friendships. #MSWL

Historical fiction that is not set in the US or Europe. #MSWL

I know everyone's been posting about this, but I LOVED Never Have I Ever on Netflix, and if you have a book that's similar, please send it to me. #MSWL

Looking for more high concept, diverse, adult rom-coms! Must be funny. Must have a good hook. #MSWL

I'd love to see more middle grade fantasy in my inbox! I get a lot of contemporary realistic and sci-fi, but not as much by the way of fantasy. #MSWL

Really in the mood for some dark fairytales #MSWL

Currently listening to Binge Mode Harry Potter, rewatching ATLA, next rewatch Dawson’s Creek. Next read? Hopefully some YA or MG featuring a ride or die group of friends. A story where friendship and love is central to the protag’s success. #MSWL

Loving THE CIRCLE on Netflix. Can someone send me a book with a similar vibe or premise?? #MSWL

In honor of Holly Black's Queen of Nothing release today, I'd love more fantasy with complicated court politics like this series. Other examples, The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkowski, and Crown Duel/Court Duel by Sherwood Smith. #MSWL
