✨THEY WISH THEY WERE US ✨has a cover!! ew.com/books/2020/02/…

If you want to know what's on my #MSWL, this YA cover of a boarding school uniform with blood on it is EXACTLY IT.

Jess Dallow @jldallow · Jan 30

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

#YA Female friendship stories. Complicated end of friendships, not because something dramatic happened, but because people grow apart. We have all lost that person we consider our
best friend. I want to feel it. (It doesn't have to be the full story.) #MSWL

#YA: Summer jobs. I'll take any fun summer job, but I'm always partial to camp. I spent my entire childhood at day camp & sleep away camp, then worked at the same day camp. Camp was so ridiculous I worked in SKIING. Yes. Skiing. At summer camp. So send me fun summer stories #MSWL

YA mystery/thriller in the vein of ONE OF US IS LYING, TWO CAN KEEP A SECRET, or THE CHEERLEADERS. #MSWL

Replying to @jldallow

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

Skipping over to YA for the moment: A book that shines a light on rape culture and the injustices of it. It's not something to be
silent about, and yet with the consequences that can come along with it, so many people are.(Comp: SPEAK; EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR) #MSWL

Meredith 🎯 @mere_789

@jldallow What are you looking for right now?

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

I say I want a dark YA mystery, but I’ve never been able to pinpoint exactly what I want. Well, now I know. Read Two Can Keep A Secret by @writerkmc. Because that was awesome. And totally the kind of book I’m looking for. #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

Jess Dallow @jldallow · 12 Sep 2017

True crime. In adult, but especially YA. #MSWL

Jess Dallow @jldallow · 12 Sep 2017

HAPPY #MSWL DAY! I'll be posting my wishlist throughout the day. Looking for YA and adult unless stated otherwise.
