Okay, I never go into a Greek myth story and expect it to be happy... but wow. I shed FLOODS of tears reading this. A brilliant, dark, gripping book about the forgotten women of the Trojan war. It's a dark read, but definitely worth it. I LOVE books that retell myths! #MSWL

I am looking for thrillers and crime fiction of all types; book club fiction that moves me and makes me think; great historical fiction (including novels featuring fantasy/mythology). In non-fiction, books which work on an emotional level and let me in on the conversation. #mswl

this means love stories ♥️, horror 👻, contemporary, scifi 🤖, speculative, & more!!

RRP is known for mythology & magic, & while those remain the pillars this imprint is built on, id love to see stories that explore culture & identity in new & unexpected ways (3/6)

FOLKLORE, MYTH, and FAIRYTALE-inspired stories that tell the old tales from new perspectives, deify new gods, and give the monster their say. Would particularly love to see non-european inspirations here (but also yrs of Latin say I am a SUCKER for the greco-roman canon🏺)#mswl

Until I find them, I desperately want BIPOC witches and/or psychics!! Each culture has its own mythology that deserves to be showcased. Let’s dive deep!
