Wait, I have another #MSWL item. Blended families!! There is nothing I love more than seeing exes okay with their former significant other’s new partner and vice versa. I need that happiness in my life.

For 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

Replying to @jldallow

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

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

Dynasty, 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

Family stories, in vein of This is Us, This is Where I Leave You. Sibling dynamics. Parent/child relationships. Complexities & bonds. #MSWL

A story of sisters, not by blood but by friendship and experiences. The family we have isn't the one we're necessarily born into. #MSWL
