My #MSWL these days: Fiction: Adult Suspense, YA contemporary (any subgenre), YA and MG Graphic Novels.
Nonfiction: Pop Culture, or Narrative Nonfiction that reads like a novel, but is 100% researched. I remain open to other stuff, but the above is what I really want.

My list is getting a bit YA fantasy heavy. I would love to see more MG fantasy/horror, YA contemporary, and MG and YA graphic novels. #MSWL.

In the last couple of months, I struck out twice when offering on fun contemporaries. One a YA rom-com, the other an adorable, witty, MG. So, #MSWL want: fun contemporaries with a great hook, super strong writing, & loveable protagonists, even when they are a bit complicated.

If I distilled my research properly, then teens want contemporary YA with friendship stories and diverse protagonists, but de-emphazing "issue books." #MSWL

On the children's fiction side, I would love to see more contemporary YA fiction (the funnier the better), as well as graphic novels. No PBs for the time being. #MSWL

I'd love to see more contemporary YA and MG that makes me laugh, including, but not exclusively, rom-coms. Additionally, I would love retellings where the story is told with the former antagonist becoming the protagonist. #MSWL

A #MSWL from me: I would really LOVE to receive some really smart, funny Contemporary YA submissions. Books that make you laugh AND think. Along the lines of, i.e.: "I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE," or "WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI," or "THE LAKE EFFECT."
