Oddly specific Halloween #mswl: in the mood for... a YA ghost romance? 🤔 Some kind of historical or time-travel shenanigans a plus but not required.

I want a YA or Adult Rom-Com that is so cute, funny, and steamy. If yours includes an interracial relationship, I'll be your best friend! And when it comes to love stories, I am especially open to LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC. #MSWL

Oh to get a lighthearted YA contemp romance that is SO FILLED W/ *ROMANTIC SLOW-BURNING TENSION* that it makes ME want to spend the rest of my days in a secluded forest singing to the stars every night of my ~yearning~ until I’m 1 with the trees

Or something like that.

Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl

In Adult, my main focus will be historical, contemporary romance, and select fantasy/paranormal. Adult is a harder sell for me, so it HAS to really be unique, new, and with strong voice/conflict

So excited for this tomorrow! When it comes to graphic novels, I’m open to a wide range, but here are a few #MSWL items: contemporary with a strong voice/distinctive perspective, historical fiction, accessible fantasy, mystery/anything spooky, romance. ♥️ #KidLitGN

I've been seeing a lot of fantasy in queries and I'd love contemporary in the YA & Adult space! Also, looking for more Women's Fiction, Domestic Suspense (think Dark Places), and Romance! Though less rom-com and more steamy - really, anything that's not too sweet! #mswl

I am so excited for this! Romances have been a big #MSWL for me for a while.
