💫 I’d love a messy dysfunctional mother/daughter adult contemporary in the vein of VERY NICE, or a family saga a la THE MOST FUN WE EVER HAD, I’m here for it, particularly if you’re a BIPOC author or have a queer story in this realm! #MSWL

In the YA realm, I’m really only looking for queer stories, whatever genre right now. Gimme your witches, sisters, weird families, romances, & intersectional feminists kicking ass mkay thanks.

I’m on the hunt for an MG contemporary, that, well, just makes me want to snuggle the book in a huge hug. I want feels, vulnerability, small towns, queer identities, feminism, first crushes, unique families, & kids of color, girls, and non-binary kids taking on the world.

And can we talk about sisters? Maybe witchy ones? In a queer & diverse YA novel? In a small town where douche bags get what’s coming to them? Just saying, I’d read it. #MSWL
