John Cusick @johnmcusickFirstly, of course, I'd love some more #ownvoices, and specifically contemporary (rom-coms, perhaps?), like TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE and DUMPLIN' (can never get enough). #MSWL
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerThis is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Yes, please. #MSWL
Kiki Nguyen @kiananguI’ll be coming through queries this week and I REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED a contemporary please. No rich kids, no white suburbia. Forget the standard girl-meets-boy.
I want the mother/daughter dynamic of EMERGENCY CONTACT. A black/POC Kara Thomas. A raunchier-voiced rom-com #mswl

#MSWL, YA edition: The Hating Game, but YA; romantic comedy; epistolary; poppy feeling Fantasy; super dark fantasy; contemporary fantasy (think The Raven Boys); historical mystery; magical realism
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween@laurenspieller Are you also looking for a YA historical mystery and, getting uber specific, would also love to find a Filipino/Filipino American YA contemporary? :D What else should we try to find, Lauren?!
But, like, really. #mswl
