People who read my blog often know I’m always on the hunt for something new to read. I’m positively addicted to a good story. With that in mind, I’ve been studying the Twitter hash tag MSWL, manuscript wish list, and imagining which new tales I might devour.
At Twitter’s #MSWL, agents, editors, publishers and other literary professionals detail what they’d like to see.
Here are thirteen I’d love to read.
- Veronica Park @VeroniKaboom I love awkwardness, wit, and barely-there romances I can ship. #MSWL

Steamy Fantasy Romance. The three best words. #MSWL

I'd love to see some fantasy that plays at the edges of our world. Think @neilhimself 's AMERICAN GODS or NEVERWHERE. #MSWL
- Susan Hawk: A MG mystery or detective novel, especially with a historical element. Think FROM THE MIXED UP FILES or CHASING VERMEER. Fast-paced, with complex characters.

#MSWL Dark, dangerous, gritty YA that pulls no punches. Thrillers and mysteries in particular. A bit of strangeness is also welcome.
- Talia Benamy @taliabenamy Do you have any books with awesome girl protagonists who break gender stereotypes? Send them my way!
- Uwe Stender @UweStender I found 4 truly funny YA/MG manuscripts in 3 years. But I want to laugh more. Humor, wit, and great writing is my dream team. #MSWL
