Middle grade: looking for page turners, sci-fi, mysteries, and HUMOR please! Also, always fantasy! More diverse friendships among characters. Would love a dual (or multi) perspective MG too. #MSWL

Oo! And what about a YA (Or adult, really) where it's f/f and they're forced to work on a painting together to win scholarship money or startup money. But they hate each other and then end up having a paint fight šŸ˜ enemies to lovers! #MSWL

How could I almost forget... TWINS! I want all the twins stories. Good twins/evil twins/one of each/not knowing the other exists... legit all of them #MSWL

All right, all right, one last one. I don't know exactly how you could execute this and make it a romance, but I am VERY into Succession right now so I'm going to throw "rich and extremely dysfunctional family with twisted but loving sibling dynamics" out there. #MSWL

Funny female writers, MG or YA. šŸ™ #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

Anyone thought of a Count of Monte Cristo retelling, but from the woman he left behind's perspective? And she's the badass getting into sword fights and proving his innocence? #MSWL

Mari Kesselring @marikesselring · 24 Sep 2019

Historical fiction (MG or YA), especially featuring underrepresented voices. Seriously, who has a Downton Abbey-inspired YA for me? Books set more in recent history (like..sigh...the 1980s and 1990s) would also be awesome to see. #MSWL

I would LOVE to edit a satirical MG or YA novel about student government. Think Mean Girls meets Wag the Dog. Or, like, Election without the gross teacher. #MSWL

#MSWL Cozy Magic MG. Think bookshops. Plant shops. Sweaters, and hot chocolate and blankets feeling inducing.

A.M. Rose @annmrose · 24 Sep 2019

Rom-com set in a restaurant but not like a fancy one. A place where they have to wear horrible uniforms (with pieces of flair), and sing terrible birthday songs, and there's tons of back of the house hijinks #MSWL

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 24 Sep 2019

I love novels (MG, YA, adult any genre) that are mostly in our world but have a single magical component that changes everything. #MSWL

I want the next Losers Club fighting evil together, but female-centric and huge bonus points for two of the girls falling head-over-heels for each other #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @RedPenKaitlyn · 24 Sep 2019

Also really craving a beautiful Historical Fantasy with worldbuilding as solid as Carnival Row (but without Fae). Gotta have that captivating voice and I'd love to see some court intrigue thrown in there #MSWL

Mackenzie Walton @mackenziewalton · 24 Sep 2019

I'm also often drawn to books with strong water elements. Moody lighthouse keepers! Sleepy coastal towns! Ship captains! Merpeople! If there's lots of fog and salt air, I'm likely to be intrigued. (This goes for both romance and mystery.) #MSWL

Mari Kesselring @marikesselring · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL YA and middle grade fiction only. (cont.)

Jessica Sinsheimer @jsinsheim · 24 Sep 2019

I love ghosts. I especially love ghosts in novels who can do just about anything living people can do, who just happen to not be currently, well, alive. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 24 Sep 2019

#MSWL Lady Spies who use traditionally feminine skills (like knitting, or embroidery) to convey messages to their fellow spies. And bonus points, make it fantasy.
