sappho panic 💖💜💙 @leneeh4unpopular opinion but slow burn friendships are just as valid as slow burn romance. like, gimme the reluctant characters who are like "i don't need anyone" but ends up with a best friend they never asked for but would die for in a heartbeat. that becomes the grumpy aunt/uncle
Ashley Nicole Black @ashleyn1coleGuess who's crying and shaking and just talked to Elizabeth Warren on the phone?!?!? We have a plan to get my mom grandkids, it's very comprehensive, and it does involve raising taxes on billionaires.
Someone write me a rom com! #MSWL
Léonicka @leonickaTake all your frustration with S8 of #GoT and channel it into writing a beautiful and detailed epic fantasy full of people of color and female complexity that doesn’t hinge on sexual violence. Then send it to me. #mswl
[Hiatus] M’Baku’s Left Thigh @Abike_II want to read more stories about ‘cousins’. I’m so many non-western cultures your cousins are as close to you as your siblings. And it’s such a nice community that I never see in YA.
#MSWL As an only child my cousins were my siblings especially since we lived with my grandmother for a period of time.
Katie Zhao 💛 aka The Draggin’ Warrior @ktzhaoauthorSomeone write me a YA friendship breakup story. All these books prepped me to deal w romantic breakups that never happened to me anyway (lmao) and yet I’m at a total loss on how to heal from heartbreaking friendship breakups?? .____.
GIVE ME ALL THE ADULT AND YA FRIENDSHIP BREAKUP BOOKS!!!!
I WILL CONTINUE TO RETWEET ALL THE TWEETS ABOUT FRIENDSHIP BREAKUP BOOKS UNTIL I GET ONE.
Hannah Allaman @hallaman13SEND ME YOUR FRIENDSHIP BREAKUP BOOKS. Middle school, high school, even (dare I say) early college! In my own life, friendship breakups have always been so much more significant/traumatic than the romantic ones. Would love to see it in my inbox! #MSWL pic.twitter.com/wTHruL3Dm7
I will forever want this. Someone finally give it to me. #MSWL

Christine Day @ByChristineDaySET IT UP meets JOSH & HAZEL’S GUIDE TO NOT DATING: A rom-com about two besties who work in the same prestigious firm in NYC, who go on a series of disastrous double-dates, because they’re actually in love with each other. twitter.com/its_willyu/sta…
Hi someone please write this. K thanks!
Jen “eeeeek” Edwards @Jene_e_edwardsbeen thinking about how the worst heartbreak i’ve ever suffered was from a friendship breakup, and how that is so rarely explored in YA. i didn’t know how to cope because i didn’t know anyone who had gone through something that intense. we need to fix this.
I can't tell you how much I say I want to acquire books about friendships, especially how to deal with either growing up and apart or having an incident that breaks the friendship apart. #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8SAMMME~ But I'd love to see multicultural witches. Brujas, hoodoos, asian witches running apothecaries! #mswl twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I'm a big proponent of diversity (begins to list family heritage) so yes to all of this. #mswl
