I'm still wishing for my near-future, not-quite-human (but with very human motivations) novel with a romantic element--kind of like Her, or the podcast Sandra. Ideally it'd be smart, socially astute, funny. #MSWL

For YA, something with gorgeous sentences, scary content, and a mission--like One of Us Is Lying meets Six of Crows. (Love a heist!) #MSWL

For picture books: I want something funny, great to read out loud, and perhaps a bit surreal--like Dragons Love Tacos meets Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. #MSWL

Gather your wishes! Practice your refreshing! The next #MSWL day will be September 12. Get ready to read what agents want NOW.

I'm sure a lot of people will be saying this, but I would like a million more books and movies like Ocean's 8. Not just for me, but for the eight-year-old girl, dreaming. #MSWL

Replying to @KLSchroed

I mean, yeah, I love pigeons! I would be totally into a picture book about smart city pigeons doing human things. #MSWL

I'd love to see an "unlikable" female protagonist you end up loving by the end. #MSWL

I'd love more books that can be described as feminist fairy tales--most likely set now, in a world mostly like ours, with a touch of wish fulfillment magic. #MSWL

I'm sure it's been said many times before, but I would LOVE a Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in book form. #MSWL

A story that could be called "The week women stopped giving a fuck." #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 25 Sep 2017

I'd love to see a new kind of modern heroine. Her superpower? No one can hurt her emotionally. So she is brave AF. And...go! #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 23 Aug 2017

Hear ye, hear ye! Gather your wishes--the next #MSWL day will be September 12, 9am-5pm NYC time.

This may exist. But, for a summer read, I'd love something that's The Truman Show meets The Bachelor meets Devil in the White City. #MSWL

I'd love to read a novel involving someone on a major movie studio's crisis team. #MSWL
