Fairy Tale

Now that it's out in the world, I can officially say:

Fantasies like THE HAZEL WOOD by @mimi_albert are on my forever and ever #MSWL. pic.twitter.com/9AzJM2pMMT

I love fairytales, the darker and more dangerous the better.

I love stories about girls with troubled pasts.

Stories about magic, and its cost.

Take me on a journey that makes me never want to come home.

If we’re being honest, my truest #MSWL is anything that can be compared to @RealGDT . Give me dark fairytales that turn the world on its head, send me gothic romances that pulsate with life, mail me heartbreak and adventure wrapped up in the heart of a child!

Still looking for a bunch of YA things: a story about female best friends; a macabre fairy tale retelling; a great mystery; a cute gay or lesbian love story. #MSWL

I'd love more books that can be described as feminist fairy tales--most likely set now, in a world mostly like ours, with a touch of wish fulfillment magic. #MSWL

STILL wanting that YA Anastasia retelling / reimagining (historical AUs, fairytale-esque fantasies, and beyond). Bonus points for a romance that charms even half as much as Anya/Dimitri. #MSWL

A first day MSWL thread ! :
#MSWL beautiful fairytale-esque stories, with vivid setting and fresh magic, eg THE BEAR & THE NIGHTINGALE, UPROOTED, WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE, FOREST OF A THOUSAND LANTERNS

"Dark, feminist fairy tale retelling. The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter for #YA (novel though, not stories)." @msmariavicente #MSWL

Looking for a fairy tale epic that isn't SFF, think Francesca Lia Block! #MSWL (dm me your one line pitch)
