If weโ€™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

I love the Brontes, Austen, fairytales, and mythology retellings. But you can surprise me with different retelling. #MSWL

#mswl MG a la PAN'S LABYRINTH--layered fairytale that doesn't flinch from reality, finds the light in the darkness. Fascist stomping a plus.
