Y’all know I love Horror. Do y’all know that the first movie I ever saw was Child’s Play? That I grew up on that series, and Nightmare on Elm St, and Friday The 13th?

I like my horror with comedy, scares, and a largely teen cast. W/genre bends like The Final Girls (2015) #mswl

I just want to read something dark with a queer femme-leaning MC who doesn’t give much of a shit until she’s faced with her worst fear. Is that so much to ask?!?! #mswl

As a queer person, I’ve never dated anybody without body hair. So, love to see more queer folks in books & film with armpit, leg, tummy, pubic hair etc, please! #mswl #generalwl

Urban Legend is one of my favorite movies from childhood. I burned the shit out of our VHS. I would love an Urban Legend + The Craft YA or Adult Horror or Spec Fic. Make sure to queer it up, too! #mswl

I need more kids in YA who are incarcerated, recently incarcerated, friends with incarcerated kids, etc and show them in all their multifaceted complexities. We are doing an absolute disservice to these kids in our fiction. #mswl

Where is the YA and Adult horror featuring queers and BIPOC (and def QTPOC!!!) in my inbox? #mswl

Instead of cooking/baking show rom-coms, can we get a mukbang rivals rom-com? #mswl

Still looking for more quirky masc-of-center kids in f/f, butches & futches. More non-binary characters, transmasc & transfemme & agender characters living their messiest best lives, please! #mswl

I think of The Yellow Wallpaper endlessly, all the time. A horror novel or Women’s Fiction adaptation/play of this short story would slay me. #mswl

Just look at these two! This scene broke me, completely.

Seriously y’all I’m a romantic and I know I rant and rave about thrillers and horrors on here. But I’m absolute shit at dating and the only romance I’m getting is in books. So send me happy queer ones, please! #mswl

I would cry if I got a YA or Adult romance f/f that felt like @claudmp3’s music. Writers, please help me out and send me this book! #mswl

Yooo, a modern-day Sugar and Spice YA!!! A queer one, obvi. #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu…

I NEED a YA f/f romance that feels like “i wanna be your girlfriend” by girl in red. #mswl
