ACK! Almost forgot: fairytale/myth retellings. Modernizations are love in YA. I want to see m/m in adult romance. #MSWL

I want to learn something: little-known history, myth, obscure art or science. Make sure it's integrated into the plot! (A mystery?) #MSWL

This is *very* specific, but I'd love to see a #YA retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche. It's my favorite. #MSWL

I love #MSWL . It's like picking ice cream toppings - "I'll take some #YA fantasy based on Pakistani myths...#ownvoices please...

Books featuring mythology (either large scale/cultural or particular family mythologies) ala Kavalier and Clay #ownvoices a plus! #mswl

Fearlessly feminist and funny YA; horror that makes use of unique cultures/mythologies; a heartbreaking literary MG. #MSWL

Erik Hane @erikhane · 2w

I like when folklore, urban legends, myths, or superstitions affect the way a character thinks or a plot progresses #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZats · 2w

SF/F based on African folklore/mythology, or set in an African-based world. #MSWL

Tell me your stories about Jewish history - the ones nobody knows. Jewish mythology and fantasy. Make it fresh and real #ownvoices #mswl

Laura Crockett @LECrockett · 2w

In adult: myth/fairytale/folklore-inspired fantasies. UPROOTED, DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST, QUEEN OF BLOOD have rich, fairytale worlds. #mswl

Beth Campbell @Campbele_E · 2w

In fantasy, I'm really interested in non-Eurocentric worldbuilding and magic/mythology. Especially #ownvoices authors. #MSWL

#MSWL Your YA series based on non-western myths...Your middle grade that feels slightly creepy and your not sure what to call it...Your best

#MSWL : Re-tellings for any age group (fairy tale & mythology) are always on my wishlist as are books WITHOUT vampires & werewolves.

"Retellings of fairy-tales & myths, w/ a twist. Different ending? Gender swapped? You tell me! @kurestinarmada #MSWL https://t.co/IFs7dkVwkN

Another thing I'd love to see is an adaptation/retelling of a myth, fairy tale or legend. #MSWL
