Would love a YA where a Korean teenager sees her life as a mirror to her favorite Korean soap opera. Grew up watching these with my best friend, and think it could be unique set up. High humor, some romance, a whole lotta' drama, & strong plot. #MSWL

Writers!

Please send me your contemporary YA; I'd love some Mean Girls or Veronica Mars-style mss.

I'm also open to adult romance! Please send me your ridiculously cute and quirky characters!

A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.

Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.

Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl

I just watched the first episode of #ThePolitician and WOW it’s dark and hilarious.

And so, of course, I now want a dark YA comedy!!!! #mswl

Teenage Dirtbag comes up on my playlist and I now want to read a f/f YA Contemporary Romance embodiment of this song. #mswl

I would love to see more YA Thrillers and Mysteries in my inbox! #MSWL

I would love to read a YA contemporary with an incredibly strong friendship, a la Amy and Molly in BOOKSMART. Bonus points if the conflict does NOT stem from romance/love interest complications (between the friends or another character)! #MSWL

If you have a YA project that has a break up scene that could be scored with @TheRocketSummer’s
“Goodbye Waves and Driveways”, send it to me. Man, I love that song. I like to travel back to 2005 now and then in my music. It was my jam then and now. #mswl youtu.be/JCOC8Wb8jiA

Having watched Let It Snow and after definitely not starting Gilmore Girls for the Nth time, I would love to see small town YA in my queries. #mswl

On the hunt for middle grade and young adult manuscripts that are really joyful and feature characters from marginalized backgrounds. #MSWL
