I would love to see more diversity in my inbox generally, but especially in both YA and Adult Suspense/Thrillers. #mswl

Okay I am totally stealing this from @SarahGrill1, but anything that feels like CLUE, THE WESTING GAME, or KNIVES OUT from a diverse POV, send it my way. Adult or YA. #mswl

I know this is super vague but I want to read a young adult manuscript that engages with that weird feeling of nostalgia you get before your life has even really changed. #mswl

I’m really looking forward to #KidLitGN! I’ll be looking for MG + YA graphic novels from authors and author/illustrators. I love realism and magic and science and horror—I love it all! I’m also particularly keen to find projects from diverse creators! #mswl

I would like to read a YA RomCom set in the time of corona. You have to make it work while still having them behave safely (masks! 6ft apart!). Anybody working on this? #mswl

4. LatinX representation in kidlit- all ages, all genres, though I am particularly interested in finding a YA contemp & a MG fantasy! A few favorites: @LauraTNamey, @Nina_Writes, @acevedowrites, @djolder, and @CeliaCPerez. (You should be reading *all* of them!)

3. RomCom - Adult or YA. I want laugh out loud, swoony, sexy, joyful reads. I loved RWRB and The Hating Game on the Adult side, To All the Boys and Gentleman's Guide on the YA side. But really, I'm happy to read anything that's truly Rom AND Com. #mswl

I’m putting this into the universe:
