#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.

#MSWL Books that play with structure and chronology.

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · Sep 24

#MSWL Adult sci-fi in the vein of Firefly. Massive in scale, but grounded in the human experience.

#MSWL Team sports in middle grade and YA. Would especially LOVE a high school girls team with a few main characters. But I'm also a sucker for Friday Night Lights...

#MSWL Funny picture books in the vein of Mo Willems.

Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein · Sep 24

#MSWL Middle grade group of friends who have to go on a mission--like ATLA, Stranger Things, The Sandlot, The Goonies, etc.
