Okay guys, I've been obsessed with #KnivesOut and I'd love to get a YA in a similar vein. I'm thinking more of the fun vibe than super suspenseful mystery. And because I am a trash shipper I'd love maybe some Marta/Ransom vibes with the characters. #MSWL

The boyfriend & I have gone down a YouTube rabbit hole of Fountains of Wayne videos that segued into Mazzy Star & then REM vids & now we are weeping.

On that note, I am very much not a fan of romance or mushy books, but if someone could write an angsty, romantic YA that captures the swoony ‘90s energy of “Fade Into You” by Mazzy Star, well... that person should send it to me. #MSWL

I'm ALWAYS looking for high concept, trope-filled #YA rom-coms. (Who else saw THE THING ABOUT HARRY??)

And I would give my heart for a #YA contemporary with all the feels of SEX EDUCATION--authentic voice, offbeat aesthetic, HUMOR, and a killer ensemble. #mswl

This can all be for MG, YA, and Adult btw.

I'd love a spec fic with modern witches (small spells, hanging herbs, cats and comfy seats to read the grimoire). Think Sabrina bet less superpower and more everyday crystals, brews, etc. #querytip #amagenting

#MSWL I'm dying to see a YA contemporary starring an all girl band in my inbox!!! Think of a mash up between SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL, SATISFACTION, with a dash of SHAMELESS.
