I’m in like full “I need escapism” mode right now (& I’m really privileged to be able to check out sometimes). Desperately need someone to send me a fluffy and lighthearted YA contemp romance. Plot can be anything, as long as it has YEARNING and TENSION🥺 #mswl

Oh to get a lighthearted YA contemp romance that is SO FILLED W/ *ROMANTIC SLOW-BURNING TENSION* that it makes ME want to spend the rest of my days in a secluded forest singing to the stars every night of my ~yearning~ until I’m 1 with the trees

Or something like that.

Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl

In Adult, my main focus will be historical, contemporary romance, and select fantasy/paranormal. Adult is a harder sell for me, so it HAS to really be unique, new, and with strong voice/conflict

#MSWL I would love a YA contemporary following an 18 year old who’s recruited into military service. Something that explores the complex socioeconomic issues pushing teens to enlist

Sibling stories! I am always interested in contemporary stories about siblings that have endured shared trauma and that follow them on their journeys as they deal with the aftermath.

I've been seeing a lot of fantasy in queries and I'd love contemporary in the YA & Adult space! Also, looking for more Women's Fiction, Domestic Suspense (think Dark Places), and Romance! Though less rom-com and more steamy - really, anything that's not too sweet! #mswl

#VampiresVsTheBronx is exactly the creative gentrification story I've been wanting T_T A middle grade GN #mswl of mine for the last 2/3 years has been a contemporary story following a POC character dealing with gentrification in the NYC neighborhood they grew up in.
