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

Enjoying Disney +, and guys, A Goofy Movie is still so freaking good! On that note, I’d love a parent/child road trip book. #MSWL

#MSWL Feminist historical fiction in adult, YA, MG and PB.

#MSWL Still looking for gritty teen sci-fi or fantasy with the intensity level and unpredictability of The 100 TV show.

#MSWL Two people with a shared past who dislike one another now, are forced to work together and they fall in love. Reluctant allies to lovers is fun!

#MSWL Common tropes with a fresh twist--falling for your best friend, enemies to lovers, etc. Take something cliche, and subvert it, or make it new.

#MSWL Explorations of families, especially those with interesting and varied cultures/traditions. I loved the balance in To All the Boys I've Loved Before.
