I’d also love to find some hooky YA contemporary! In addition to my dream of finding a Jewish rom-com, I’ve also loved reads like Fangirl, Geekerella, and Simon Vs. with fully realized characters and fun hooks (themes of nerd/pop/fandom culture always interests me, too!). #MSWL

I'd also love to find mind-bendy, genre twisting stories that feel in the vein of my recent Netflix obsessions Black Mirror, Russian Doll, The OA, and Dark. That obviously includes a huge range, but they're all contemporary-rooted stories with speculative elements woven in. #MSWL
