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

The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairing—m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.

Please please please don’t have the romantic interest to die of cancer, or in a car crash, or commit suicide. 💔

Even if romance isn’t the main feature, if it has these characteristics I want to see it.

In MG—yes there can be romance in MG—I really want that sweet and innocent first crush, first kiss, first hand holding. I want the feels to wrap around me like a warm blanket.

Take me back to that awkward time where the love interest doesn’t know what hits them when they meet “the one”—especially if it’s enemies to lovers!

My Monday #MSWL feature is romance. In YA I am looking for rom coms. Give me a modern, YA twist of When Harry Met Sally any day with any pairing. #loveislove #amagenting

@LifeinFiction you are so right (again)! THE ROOMMATE by @rosiedanan is amazing and just what I needed to read this weekend. When I reopen to queries in a few days, I'd love to see books like this in my inbox. #amreading #MSWL

In one of the latest episode of THE CHI, Kevin and his friends sneak into what they think is a haunted building. I would love to see a YA mystery built around this scene in my inbox! #MSWL

#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.

3. I want to hear from marginalized authors who have a story to tell that isn't just considered an "issue book". Give me culture and family and love.
4. Give me characters I want to root for and in the end, there's a HEA.

What am I missing in my inbox?
1. I want smushy sweet romance that makes me tear up when I read--like LOVE, VICTOR or LOVE, SIMON or RED WHITE and ROYAL BLUE.
2. I want relationships that are full of friendship and happiness, especially written with a cast of diverse characters.

I am hungry for YA novels in verse in the same vein as POET X by @ElizabethC05172, LONG WAY DOWN by @JasonReynolds83, or SHOUT by @halseanderson. Give me your strong voices and lyrical prose. #MSWL
