#MSWL: fairytale and mythology retellings, especially in unusual or unexpected settings, and especially if reimagined to give agency to the marginalized. No damsels, no white knights, all underdogs.

I'd really love stories that breathe new life into classic fairytales and myths. Would definitely like to see a fresh take on something like mermaids. #MSWL

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 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
