(Memoir continued) I love books with humor and interesting perspectives, and enjoy a big personality or narration to go with the contents of the memoir. I do not want conservative or conservative leaning memoirs. #mswl

Hi I would like to know why I don't already have at least five seasons of this hit romcom series????…

Rival female hockey team captains fall in love, but WAIT what about the upcoming championship where their teams must play each other!?

Someone please write this YA with tons of humor and love and joy and send it to me as soon as possible!!! Ok, thanks!

On the lighter side, upmarket fiction & beach reading sans the beach! Historical fiction, romantic comedies, family sagas, I'm open to pretty much anything with humor and heart

At the moment, I'd say I want to see YA and MG that leads with joy. Falling in love. Doing something exciting. Exploring new worlds. Kids with quirky passions. Humor. Families (of all configurations) that love each other. #MSWL

Happy new year writers! Here are a few #MSWL 's I am really hoping to see in my inbox in 2021. At the top of my list is big, juicy Contemporary Romance. Give me out of this world chemistry, off the charts humor, and escapism for days

Here's my current #MSWL:

In MG fiction: horror, contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, action/adventure, mystery, and humor.

In children’s fiction: picture books (non-rhyming preferred).

Always looking for own voices, diversity, and LGBTQ+!!!

When I reopen to queries I want to see those friend families of outcasts & weirdos around that terrible cusp of adolescence. The kids who are patently uncool & dealing with tough stuff, but can get through it because they have each other, & lots of humor & heart.

Reading THE SWITCH & goddess, I’d love a queer BIPOC contemporary adult novel (could say women’s fic, but I’d love any marginalized gender) that has similar feels. Light romance, quirky characters, humor, & a heartwarming takeaway that makes you want to live your best life.#MSWL

For mystery, I'm mostly interested in cozy mysteries, particularly those created by & featuring queer, BIPOC, and QBIPOC characters. I want intrigue, humor, & fresh takes on all the fave tropes. Please no cop-centric stories. #MSWL

IYKYK, Carol. #Superintelligence premieres November 26 on HBO Max.

I realize the vagueness of this #mswl, but I adore Melissa McCarthy with my whole being and I'd love to see some subs featuring protagonists that live with the same kind of heart, humor, and joy.

HUMOROUS VOICES! A lot of the contemporary I read and acquire has a witty/ funny narrator, and an author with a gift for humor (see: Cece in @SoniaHartl1's HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN ME). Please, please send me your funny books! #MSWL

For picture books, I tend to lean towards a more commercial edge. And humor, with a heart of gold is 100% where my heart lies. #MSWL
