I'm leaning pretty light-hearted these days but I'm not necessarily opposed to darker twinged series. But please no being dark and brutal for the sake of being dark and brutal! I want stories to feel hopeful #MSWL

My #mswl gets pretty detailed into what I am looking for but generally speaking, I'm drawn to characters first & foremost in a story. I want to fall in love with them, I want to feel like they're my best friend, I want to call them up and yell at them for their bad decisions.

I am ONLY looking for YA/New Adult/Adult stories in romance, rom-coms, romantasy, upmarket/book club fiction, and women's fiction. OK to cross into the magical side of speculative (time travel, time slip, parallel universe stories a la THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston)

Just came from seeing BODIES BODIES BODIES and greatly enjoyed the whodunit aspect. It’s definitely the type of thing I love to read in mysteries/thrillers #MSWL

I really liked PLAN B and wrote about it ✨ autostraddle.com/plan-b-review-…

Watched it this weekend and it was hilarious, heartwarming, and everything I wanted! Highly recommend and want something like this for my #MSWL

If you are a pop culture or music writer obsessed with the girl groups and boy bands of the 00s (Dream, 3LW, A*Teens, Dreamstreet) hmu because I’d love to find a non fic narrative about 00s music scene and how it paved the way for pop music today #mswl

YA: I want stories with mother/daughter relationships a la Lady Bird. Also just rewatched Clueless and I want more zany rom-coms with a clever, confident protags. Ten million points if MC is Latina. #MSWL

For historical fic: fave time periods are 19th century and 20th century (especially 1900s-1960s). Bonus points for female protags defying the then order. Double bonus points if MCs are 1st/2nd gen Americans. #MSWL

Time to share my #MSWL! For SFF: Black Mirror-esque thrillers that imagine the dark and twisted places tech could take us. My fave eps were "Nosedive" and "Men Against Fire." Also want fantasies built on myths and legends, especially from diverse cultures.
