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/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
Amanda Isabel Ramirez (ง'̀-'́)ง @AmandaIsA_RamI am just a girl, standing in front of the internet, begging for a young #YA / upper #MG about a #Latinx girl who has to choose between a quinceañera and a sweet sixteen because Americanization™️ and all the cultural / generational drama that ensues #MSWL
OH MY GOD, YES!!!!! #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
Eliza Swift @elizaswiftOur whole office has been talking about the Fyre festivals docs and I have a new #mswl: a YA horror/thriller set at a musical festival gone wrong. Give me this book!!!
Living for this book, tbh #MSWL
Bess Cozby @besscozbyI watched "The Blair Witch Project" this weekend, and am real proud of myself for sleeping afterward.
It makes me want to read a YA horror in that vein, where your imagination makes everything worse. Urban legends. Haunted woods. Someone make me afraid to sleep, please.
Yes, please! #MSWL
