Brit Brooks-Perilli Is On Hiatus 😴
📚 More diverse, inclusive teens falling in love! Looking for romance, romantic comedy & situational rom-coms that can make me laugh and then hit me in all the feels. Favorites: fake dating, rivals-to-lovers, friends-to-lovers, stuck together & second chance #MSWL
JESSE(they/them) @BowtiesBooksWhat are some things you’d like to see more of in books? It can be ANYTHING. some of mine:
- non-binary folks
- bi men
- Black joy
- journey w an animal guide
- less romance
- intergenerational/generational storytelling
- Villain protagonist
- Black thrillers
- elder mc
I'd love to see:
✨ NF pop culture/geeky books from non-white authors
✨ BIPOC & POC fans being passionate & creative
✨ Positive, playful LGBTQA+ rom-coms
✨ Soft, beautiful, powerful friendships
✨ More empowering, playful, joyful stories with BIPOC & POC MCs
Is there a YA rom-com out there where the protagonist leaves behind hidden letters for the love interest to find? Possibly hidden among some books? If not, I'd love to see it!
This #mswl brought to you by Romance Is A Bonus Book (Thanks for the recommendation @kurestinarmada)!
Brit Perilli @Britny_PerilliLooking for some manga/anime to enjoy over the holiday in the vein of Ouran High School Host Club, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, or Love is Hard for Otaku!
Honestly, I'd love to see some YA that has the playfulness & emotional conflicts of these kinds of rom coms with diverse protagonists, too. #mswl
