#MSWL - something big, sweeping, ROMANTIC. I love love and I love romantic stories, whether they're romantic comedies or sweeping love stories. I want to see love against the odds stories.

Watching Anastasia, one of my all-time favorites. Give me a romance that feels like Anya and Dimitri’s! #MSWL

For Adult, send me your romcoms or category romances! I’m also looking for big, juicy love stories. I live for the feels. I love women’s fiction on the light and fluffy side. Family stories, etc. Those are my kinds of stories #MSWL

I am actively looking for Latinx voices.

For YA, I would adore a fantasy (or all of them), magical realism and romcoms. I like the light and fluffy in contemporary.

For adult, historical romances, romcoms, WF focused on relationships and magical realism. Commercial fic #MSWL

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

Strong hooks are a must. I would love to see more romance (& any genre) with nonbinary/trans characters as well. And just saying, cowboy books are hot & all, but what about sexy cowgirls or nonbinary animal wranglers!? All those het faves, I'd love them queer! #MSWL

What's called “Women’s Fiction” but really, any marginalized gender MC with a personal journey as an A plot and romance as a B plot (if it's there at all) akin to SUCH A FUN AGE, BIG SUMMER, LUSTER, HOLLY BANKS FULL OF ANGST #MSWL

Queer YA genre fiction of any kind. Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller (I didn't know I liked thrillers, but SURRENDER YOUR SONS got me this year), Sci-fi, Romance, Historical, Horror (as long as it's not too grisly; think Hill House, not Halloween). Most especially from QBIPOC #MSWL
