I would love to get some more adult romcoms that have the high concept hooks and diversity that's been happening in YA romcoms! My adult list is still very bare and I'd love to flesh it out more with some new writers and projects. #mswl

The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairing—m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.
