I realized I haven’t updated my #mswl in a while, so here’s what I’m currently on the hunt for:

🗡️ BIPOC romantasy
💜 queer contemporary romance (drown me in tropes!)
🐉 myth retellings with a twist
🇨🇦 Canadian authors
🧭 Dan Brown-esque mystery/thrillers

New on my #MSWL when I reopen is a paranormal mystery in the vein of @Ll20Victoria 's GHOST HUNTER series (Dang, I miss that series!) or @JulietBlackwell 's WITCHCRAFT MYSTERIES...but with a super-strong romantic will-they-or-won't-they sub plot.

I really want to see more YA Fantasy in my inbox. Romantic Fantasy, grounded/contemporary fantasy, paranormal fantasy. Light magic, spooky magic, bizarre magic. Dark, frothy and fun, ALL OF IT. #mswl

I've officially gone through all my queries. So, it's time for a short #MSWL

My focus right now is contemporary ❤️romance❤️
-Rom-coms with fantastic humour (I love sarcasm) and layered characters
-Navigating dating/love/heartbreak as a millennial
-Sports romance!

I am ONLY looking for YA/New Adult/Adult stories in romance, rom-coms, romantasy, upmarket/book club fiction, and women's fiction. OK to cross into the magical side of speculative (time travel, time slip, parallel universe stories a la THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP by Ashley Poston)

I also love stories featuring relationships—the good, the bad, and everything in between: friendship and found family, “friend break-up”, complicated family dynamics. And I adore romance (especially LGBTQIA+!), but prefer it as a subplot.
