I am going to open again to queries next Monday. I would really like to see a romance (either YA or mainstream adult) that will sweep me away, a character I will fall in love with in chapter 1, and to add more diversity to my list overall. #mswl QueryManager.com/1621

#MSWL Remember those YA romantic dystopian books from 10-15 years ago? LEGEND, SHATTER ME - I even count HUNGER GAMES here. I'd LOVE to see some new, fresh romantic dystopian!

(No plague-based books or books where the world is dystopian because it's misogynist, though, please.)

For Marisa, her favorite tropes in romance are the ones that make the readers second-guess themselves, starting off with stronger emotions only to find themselves falling in love with the LI, at the same rate the MC does!

A personal reading update in case it’s helpful to see what I’m into right now! I adored How To End a Love Story & Funny Story. I’ve loved Yulin Kuang since her YouTube days, and her debut is funny, romantic, & emotional. And, of course, EmHen remains the romcom queen. #mswl

🗡️ 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.

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!
