Funny books, for readers of all ages. I’m not super into corny jokes/poop humor, but everything else? Bring it. #mswl

This is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...

I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:

--high concept
--romantic
--funny
--diverse!
--contemporary
--family B plots
--HEA

Let's do this!

Adult Contemporary/Romance Writers! I would like to sign a project that reads like Bridget Jones/Crazy Rich Asians/The Hating GAme--funny, fast paced, and clued in to social questions. #MSWL

I want a vampire book that reads like this show. Funny, sweet, and from the POV of the vampire, *not the victim*--or at least not the victim alone. Another great example is BLOOD SUCKING FIENDS: A LOVE STORY by Christopher Moore. #MSWL

I *need* a funny YA or Adult project. Not a humor book, just something wry, clever, or better yet--hilarious! #MSWL

I’d like to find a YA that shows what it’s like finding love after heartbreak. Bonus points if it’s funny. #MSWL

#MSWL: funny YA set in a Medieval Times-like restaurant. Give me performer hierarchy drama, kitchen secrets, and a love story to swoon over.

If you have a funny YA or Adult space opera, then for the love of all that is holy and good, send it to me! #SFFPit #MSWL

Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻‍♀️) @laurenspieller · 9 May 2017

I'd love to find an adult fantasy like Daniel O'Malley's THE ROOK--smart, funny, and totally surprising. #MSWL
