Contemporary

MistleTia 🎄 (Closed to Queries) @TiatheTiger · 1d

I am open to pretty much any contemporary romance (no paranormal/fantasy/sci-fi/historical for adults please!) but specifically I’d love to see a workplace romance in my inbox! #mswl

Jennifer Weis @JenniferWeisRYA · 1d

Thrillers, bookclub fiction, and books with contemporary relevance, narrative or otherwise, are on my #MSWL.
I want to be thrilled, stumped, mystified, turned on, and everything in between.

Adding new #MSWL #VisualMSWL to my Pinterest board that reflect some of the contemporary vibes I want:

Also give me some contemporary fantasy rooted in myth, lore and legends 1- #MSWL. I also specifically would love a Korean author to send me a YA contemporary fantasy w/the story of Jacheongbi as foundation! 2- #MSWL.

Where is my ya contemporary story of a black male gymnast’s rise to glory? #MSWL

#MSWL Looking for very commercial, highly aspirational YA with own-voices, diverse characters, especially contemporary YA, or contemporary fantasy YA. Please put in referral line of Query manager link: "#MSWL: some combo of the above language."

If you can comp a YA contemporary to Princess Diaries, I want to see it in my inbox. In referral line, please put #MSWL Princess Diaries.

I'm ALWAYS looking for high concept, trope-filled #YA rom-coms. (Who else saw THE THING ABOUT HARRY??)

And I would give my heart for a #YA contemporary with all the feels of SEX EDUCATION--authentic voice, offbeat aesthetic, HUMOR, and a killer ensemble. #mswl

Hannah Allaman @hallaman13 · 2d

And on the exact opposite end of the spectrum, I love my contemporary realistic #MG with tons of heart + humor + hope. ❤️

Would love to see a character-driven sports story, like the Track series!

#mswl YA fantasy or contemporary where it's focused on the apprentice to the tiger handler (yes, this is a #TigerKing inspiration) or someone who escaped a tiger cult lol

Also hungry for contemporary with LGBT, mental health, and disability rep. Not necessarily issue book plots for GN, but characters in their lives (I'd LOVE Fantasy with disability rep!) #amagenting #querytip

#MSWL I'm dying to see a YA contemporary starring an all girl band in my inbox!!! Think of a mash up between SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL, SATISFACTION, with a dash of SHAMELESS.

Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblake · 4d

With everything going on, I’m hungry for comfort reads in the form of heartfelt middle grade contemporaries. I’d love to see a realistic story laced with hope reminiscent of MY JASPER JUNE, OTHER WORDS FOR HOME, & HURRICANE SEASON, esp from marginalized creators! #MSWL

Leslie Zampetti @leslie_zampetti · 4d

Read the late great Barbara Neely’s BLANCHE ON THE LAM yesterday. So sad we only have 4 of these. I’m going to have to dole them out to myself as treats...

I’d love a contemporary #ownvoices mystery that tells it like it is, just as Ms. Neely did. #MSWL

Rebecca Podos @RebeccaPodos · 5d

YA or adult or crossover, SFF or contemporary or romance, I don’t care; just send me your books starring queer, exceptionally charming disasters #MSWL

From @susanW1F: I adore novels with a sense of mischief, powerful prose/voice, dark in unexpected ways, but never bleak. I love a contemporary, complex family story, or something with a speculative edge - ghosts, folklore, magic, ‘otherness’. Find me here: bit.ly/3dvyqWg

@stephlystein Is there anything you’ve really yearned for lately in your inbox? #okscbwichat

Always! I'm dying for some deeply emotional MG contemporary, smart MG fantasy/adventure, and a sweeping, EPIC YA romance. More of my recent wishlist items are on the hashtag #MSWL! #okscbwichat
