QT with what trope do you want to see more in books? or like trope you haven't seen before and you want to? i really want to know!

Currently in love with queer mythology retellings (can I get an LGBTQ+ Orpheus and Euripides? With a happier ending… https://t.co/7bppcow4Qn

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

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · Feb 8

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

I'd like to see a modern retelling of a Greek myth. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Feb 8

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

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · Feb 8

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

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · Feb 8

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

Lorin Oberweger @AuthorLor · Feb 8

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

Erik Hane @erikhane · Feb 8

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

Laura Zats @LZats · Feb 8

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

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · Feb 8

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 · Feb 8

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

Beth Campbell @Campbele_E · Feb 8

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