I’d love a rom-com about conversion or something similar a la Charlotte York Goldenblatt #mswl

#MSWL A light fall romcom set somewhere with great architecture (e.g. London) during cuffing season.

Peep my hater in the background;) pic.twitter.com/d7qO20x0VP

#MSWL a f/f romcom where the plucky bridesmaid and the hater in the red dress end up together at the end please

If anyone has a romcom about two of the GBBO bakers falling in love, I can't stress how high that is on my #mswl

I'm pickier with YA lately since it already makes up a large part of my list, but I'm still looking for magical realism, contemporary witches/magic, gothic stories, the influence of modern tech in romcoms, and fantasy or reimaginings that are different and fresh. #MSWL

#MSWL for when I reopen: romcom with emphasis on the comedy. Not just giggling-cute. I want Chidi and Eleanor absurdity level LOLs. Bonus points if the sex scenes are also funny.

Agents! I’d love to acquire a cozy #YA rom-com set during the autumn season. #MSWL

Oh boy, it's #MSWL time! Things I'm always down to get in my inbox:
🌟 LGBTQ rom-coms (a la Red White and Royal Blue)
🌟Humerous YA Contemporary romance (Hot Dog Girl, Fangirl, give me awkward/nerdy MCs)
🌟Campy MG/YA that gives me that spoopy/heartfelt Gravity Falls vibe🌳 🌠

In upmarket fiction, I’m looking for precise angles:
> Period pieces with women breaking into lively professions (think TV or comedy a la I Love Lucy).
> Women in S.T.E.M
> Anything geeky but accessible
> Gender fluid, masc. of centre, and non-binary protagonists. #MSWL

#MSWL!
✨ Latinx MG & YA (contemporary; rom-coms)
✨ Vampires! Especially if by authors of color
✨ Atmospheric small-town settings with lots of (deadly) secrets
✨ Mixed format stories like THE KINGDOM, RULES FOR VANISHING, & ALL OF THIS IS TRUE

Amy Cloughley @AmyCloughley · Sep 24

But I also look for a “lean forward” plot. Whether a domestic mystery, family saga, upmarket fiction, or light-hearted romcom, send me your novels with that page-turning quality that keep me reading late into the night. #mswl

I'd love to see a women's/upmarket/rom com novel like Brittany Runs A Marathon, but with another (at first, seemingly impossible) goal. #MSWL

Lydia Sharp 📚❤☕🌈 @lydia_sharp · Sep 24

the rest of this is ROMANCE ❤️
**rom-coms - and I'd really like to see some diversity here in the characters, their identities, and their backgrounds
**it's gotta be funny but not like slapstick humor - give me witty banter, and funny scenarios that aren't over the top
#MSWL

Ruqayyah Daud @rsdaud · Sep 24

black girl romcom that is basically clueless x legally blonde except dionne is the star 🤷🏽‍♀️ #mswl

A.M. Rose @annmrose · Sep 24

Rom-com set in a restaurant but not like a fancy one. A place where they have to wear horrible uniforms (with pieces of flair), and sing terrible birthday songs, and there's tons of back of the house hijinks #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · Sep 24

Unlikely pairings for YA rom coms, please. Give us the couple no one expects will get together, and then make them happier than everyone (even if it takes awhile to get there). #MSWL
