Me anytime a girl is nice to another girl in a book: Ohhh, they like each other!

Me any time a girl is mean to another girl in a book: Ohhh, they like each other!

CLEARLY, I need MORE f/f books in my life & in my QUERY INBOX. All the f/f in my #mswl. Femme, butch, trans, ALL!

I'm really not into working with YA about theater kids/theater productions, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE always consider me for contemporary books about dancers/dance. #mswl

I don't know if I shout about this loud enough: I DO represent Adult SFF and I WANT IT very very badly. I'm looking for fantasy like THE POPPY WAR, SPINNING SILVER, and JADE CITY. Sci-fi like VIGILANCE and THE PREY OF GODS.

Omg so I’m listening to Natasha Ngan’s ep of @88cupsoftea. Hearing Yin and Natasha gush about shared Malay culture makes me think of my distant cousins/relatives my ba would show me who did Thai pageants.

I’d LOVE a Thai-written YA based around pageant life! #mswl

I am so happy! @netflix put on #CamMovie and this is the fucking movie I NEEDED IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW! Also #1 on my Adult #MSWL. I don't want to spoil the movie, but THIS is how you refresh a fucking genre!

I am currently reading BIRD BOX (the SCARIEST book ever omfg) and obsessively rewatching The Haunting of Hill House and I would literally murder a grandma to get an Adult or YA horror that exploits family dynamics #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 12 Sep 2018

Girls and women and enbys who love sex or love talking about it and just don’t give a fuck about propriety #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 12 Sep 2018

I really want a contemporary women’s fiction that takes it out of middle class white working woman territory! #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 12 Sep 2018

YA Bad love interests who are 100% in their feelings & you better watch out if you think you can talk shit about it #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 12 Sep 2018

You know in stories where the MC is being drawn to the dark/evil/criminal side, but they eventually decides they're going to help stop them? My #mswl is what if they didn't.

I am not a fan of good girls! Now, the good girl's whorish, volatile bff? THAT's the girl I'm looking for! #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 18 Jul 2018

I want a contemporary romance like Samira and Frankie’s relationship in #LoveIsland You get me that and I’ll sign you ASAP #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 20 Jun 2018

I’ll be coming through queries this week and I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED a contemporary please. No rich kids, no white suburbia. Forget the standard girl-meets-boy.

I want the mother/daughter dynamic of EMERGENCY CONTACT. A black/POC Kara Thomas. A raunchier-voiced rom-com #mswl
