#MSWL An Anne/Gilbert relationship. Swoon.

#MSWL Give me all the longing, pining, desperation to be together, long drawn out circling of one another, unrequited love, etc. I love a little angst and uncertainty before a HEA.

I've been hiding in my work cave lately. But popping out to say that I enjoyed The Society on @netflix and would love to see something similar in my inbox #MSWL

I'm so excited!!!! I want a book that makes me feel like this trailer does #MSWL…

I want to be more specific about this #MSWL. I want something that gives me the nostalgia and friendship of The Sandlot (like this does) while also bringing in the awesome sci-fi adventure we see in Stranger Things. Don't comp if it's just sci-fi without the other elements.

Another #MSWL today! A YA sex comedy like American Pie, but with a female and/or LGBTQ friend group.

#MSWL Anything at all similar to The Winners Curse. A cunning main character, intricate plot, and lushly imagined world. Oh and some excellent pining.

#MSWL A modern Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants type story!

On Monday I open to queries again. And I'd like to see some books in which girls or women burn the patriarchy to the ground. #MSWL

7. A girl and her dog book, but not too sad! #mswl

6. Two very different types of girls learning to appreciate each other and become best friends. #mswl
