In young adult:

-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.

- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life

-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7

Really hungry for some good contemporary romances right now. Romcom, serious, tortured, preferably with a slow burn romance. ♥️

Schitt's Creek is a romance novel.

I should be more transparent: I’d kill to see the adult contemporary romance novel version of Schitt’s Creek in my inbox #MSWL

3) High-concept YA contemporary or contemporary-with-a-twist, especially if it comes with an irreverent, self-referentially funny voice. Sarcastic or endearingly self-deprecating humor to the front of the line. I love a protagonist who feels like a co-conspirator.

(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl

For YA & MG contemp., I love fiction where the main character has average, everyday challenges and we see how they overcome them. I love books that are lighthearted and emotionally driven.... #mswl
