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.

Having sold the MG graphic novel SORT OF SUPER by #Teamtriada's @ericgapstur with Brent in a six-figure pre-empt has definitely whet my whistle. I would love to see more author/illustrator MG and YA #graphicnovels in my Inbox. #MSWL

#MSWL: Gothic. Give me YA, Adult, anything that speaks to the atmosphere of du Maurier, Jackson, Hill, Purcell, or Waters. Looking for the perfect cross between feminine and terrifying.

The last five days of my life were mostly drama and fear, but things are looking up. I still need cheering up, nonetheless, so my #MSWL for now is: YA friendship stories, YA romance, YA rom coms, YA boarding school books, YA hijinks, YA "All American" show TV like soap opera.

Deliver me LGBT+ YA stories that leave the reader joyful. Plots that are fun, invigorating, and clever. I'd love to read an LGBT love or friendship story that's incredibly well written and makes me feel HAPPY afterward. #MSWL

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

College YA is another area that has been brought up in my informal polling, @ReadWriteandMe also mentioned it. I wish that publishers were more open to it, but if you send me a great one, we may make it happen saleswise. My next #MSWL: College YA.

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

These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #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
