Middle grade or YA contemporary stories - without romance or with it in the background. Stories like: American Street, The Hate You Give, Tiny Pretty Things, The Stars Beneath Our Feet, Ghost, Harbor Me, Watch Over Me, and From the Desk of Zoe Washington.
So many teens are reading a particular author, but I really would LOVE an authentic teen contemporary romance. The emotional rollercoaster. The disapproving parents. Messy. Concentual. Sweet. NOT written for adults--think the new season of Ginny and Georgia.
The Fear Street movies are everything I love about horror and more. #MSWL I’d love to see anything along these lines in YA horror. Make it contemporary, sassy, full of friendship, enemies that band together, and don’t forget the jump scares. #FearStreetNetflix
This week has felt like a year, so please send me some fun contemporary! Give me all the MG and YA goofiness that makes me giggle and gives me all the feels. I’m ready to open my inbox and smile🥰 #MSWL
2. Adult rom-com or contemporary romance set during the holidays—I love Christmas, but I’d love to see diverse holidays celebrated also.
Time for my Tuesday #MSWL focused on...contemporary. In YA and MG I am always searching for strong characters that fight to change the world. Give me a teen/group of teens staging a protest and making things happen with their voices. #amagenting
#MSWL I'm dying to see a YA contemporary starring an all girl band in my inbox!!! Think of a mash up between SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL, SATISFACTION, with a dash of SHAMELESS.
