#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.

MIDDLE GRADE. Gimme allll the middle grade! Contemporary middle grade, magical realism, fairy tales, fantasy. Anything that can described as for fans of Dianna Wynn Jones or Miyazaki will have me salivating #MSWL

#MSWL Also craving smart escapist reads, fairy-tale retellings, books about motherhood (not prescriptive though) and anything that tackles the most urgent issues in our society and/or pushes the envelop.

I’m still looking for a YA macabre fairy tale retelling. A story that combines luxurious fantasy and horror. #MSWL

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

I would love to find a unique retelling of a fairytale or folktale for the #mg #YA or adult market! #MSWL

Looking for lesser-known fairy tales reimagined and mythology, folklore, or fables from different parts of the world! #mswl

Wishing for some stunning epic diverse Fantasy and SciFi to appear in my inbox. Bring me retold fairy tales like we’ve never seen them, and ALL the futurisms. Anyone got any? #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.
