Agents, I'm dying for more high-concept, heart-in-your-throat, race-through-the-pages YA thrillers and horror by BIPOC authors! I promise, you will make my day!! #MSWL

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · Mar 31

I'm barely scratching the surface... psychological horror! Character-driven literary fantasy! Someone stop me!

But I'm gonna take a break for now.

Can't wait to bring some amazing books into the world @DelacortePress!! ❤️

Did anyone else see this article about this elite LA prep-school basketball team? I want this #YA book please. #mswl


Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · Mar 31

I'm ALWAYS looking for high concept, trope-filled #YA rom-coms. (Who else saw THE THING ABOUT HARRY??)

And I would give my heart for a #YA contemporary with all the feels of SEX EDUCATION--authentic voice, offbeat aesthetic, HUMOR, and a killer ensemble. #mswl

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · Mar 31

And on the exact opposite end of the spectrum, I love my contemporary realistic #MG with tons of heart + humor + hope. ❤️

Would love to see a character-driven sports story, like the Track series!


Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · Mar 31

I really REALLY want to see more spooky, dark, creepy #MG in my inbox. Horror! MONSTERS!! Where u at?


Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · Mar 31

NGL I'm also consistently a sucker for...

📌Families! Siblings! Multi generational stories!
📌Witches + magic
📌Baking (bonus points: make it flirty)
📌Speculative twist? I'm there.

I'm always looking for:

✨A big hook + a super strong voice + gorgeous writing
✨Unique, immersive, fully realized settings
✨Genre blending/defying stories. Give me the weird, the ambitious, the unforgettable.

“Hell is a teenage girl”—PLEASE, someone send me a queer, feminist, campy horror novel in the vein of Jennifer’s Body, which I just watched for the first time (because that original marketing campaign, yikes) and omg. #MSWL

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · 23 Aug 2019

Could someone please send me a YA contemporary novel with all the aching feels of Cruel Summer from #Lover?? Yes, I have been listening to this album all day. 🤷🏻‍♀️💕 #mswl

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · 14 Jun 2019

A friend just described something as "unreliable narrator feminist horror fantasy" and turns out that's all I want in a YA novel so pls send. #mswl

SEND 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

Just drank a pot of coffee and binged the entire season of Derry Girls (which was fantastic), and now I want a book about teens being teens against a backdrop of political conflict #mswl

My number one wish list item right now is heartfelt, voice- and relationship-driven contemporary MG. Recent faves like IVY ABERDEEN, LOVE LIKE SKY, and FRONT DESK gave me families, friendships, and crushes that felt achingly, oh so real. If you have it, I want it! 😊 #MSWL
