Stephanie Doig @stephaniedoigFor a long time now I've been looking for a contemporary romance in which an only child/lonely person is welcomed into a huge, sprawling, loving family. Think While You Were Sleeping. (We're looking now for romances for 2020's holiday season, hint hint.) #MSWL
Oh my god, YES, PLEASE. One of my favorite things about While You Were Sleeping is how close Lucy got to the Callaghan family (and Saul). I'm always looking for a story where someone is "taken in" and loved by a family not their own #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
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzMy current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers
Oh, look. I like all these things! #MSWL
Orlando Dos Reis @odosreisDynasty, but YA #MSWL pic.twitter.com/IdSW5nhkJ4
YES, someone please send this to me. I'll take Dynasty, Dallas, any of those that focus on wealth, family, and drama, drama, drama. #MSWL
Jess Dallow @jldallowLiane Moriarty type of story. But who doesn't want that, right? Murder, women supporting women, beach settings. Yes, pls. #MSWL
Complicated family dynamics. Exes being friends. Friends raising a kid together and those complications. #MSWL
