Today’s work from home movies: When Harry Met Sally, What Women Want, Wet Hot American Summer, The Wedding Date

To relate it to my #MSWL, I don’t care what men want, but I do care about summer camp (counselors & their shenanigans-Upper YA/Adult) & rom-coms like TWD and WHMS (A)

#YA/#Adult: Male and female friendship that is strictly platonic. I love LGBTQ characters, but I'd like them to be straight to show that men & women can just be friends. Ex: Alex and Meredith (Grey’s), Delilah and Gary (A Million Little Things), Olivia and Nick (SVU) #MSWL

#adult Going back to the Quinceanera post that I retweeted earlier, I'd also love to see this done with a bat mitzvah. Having a bat mitzvah at 12/13 is very different than having one at 30. But, I just want my fun Jewish stories. #hotmitzvah #MSWL

#Adult: SERIAL KILLERS. I mention this one a lot. I'd love to see a female serial killer, but I'm not picky. Cat and mouse games. The psychology of a killer. The seemingly normal life that they lead. #MSWL

I'm going for an #adult author comp this time around. I'd love the kind of books that Jill Santopolo writes. Heartbreaking, humerous, and incredibly relatable. Also, I would love to see NYC as a character. Teach me about places in a city I live in. #MSWL

YA/ADULT: Fanfiction/Fandom. The way people can meet online and tell secrets they'd tell no one else. The jealousy that can come from someone being popular or getting more reviews. People falling in love. Snippets of fanfic. The freaking DRAMA. (Comp: FANGIRL) #MSWL

More ADULT: Child psychopaths, along the lines of BABY TEETH, THE BAD SEED or THE GOOD SON.
What happens when a good family is stuck with a child who has no empathy whatsoever? #MSWL

First up in ADULT: Gimme all the rom-coms. I'm not just looking for romance. I want to laugh. I want to fall in love. Think THE HATING GAME or THE PROPOSAL (the Sandra Bullock movie). #MSWL

Signing off of #pitmad for the day. I’ve managed to ❤️ a bunch of YA, but I’m also desperately looking for adult. If you have an adult thriller or mystery or something I’ve mentioned on #MSWL please query me. Serial killers. No supernatural. Longer book wishes coming on #MSWL day

Serial killers. Holding out for a child psychopath. Domestic suspense. Thrillers (in adult and YA) . Rom-Coms. Friendship breakups (YA). Male/female platonic relationships (prefer adult, but would look at YA). Otherwise, follow my #MSWL. #askagent

There are not enough novels dealing with families of mixed race and adoption. But I want it, I need it, send, send, send. #adultorya #allaboutthefamilies #MSWL
