I'm trying to put my #mswl together for y'all but every time I write something I want to read I get way too specific about it

like yes please I would like a queer retelling of the Morrígan myth set during the Irish War of Independence with speculative magic vibes

A magical #MSWL tweet from @BookEndsJessica!

"I want something whimsical and myth-based, but grounded in the real world. Especially fabulism or magical realism. I recently took on a book that's like an adult CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, and I LOVE it! I want more."

Announcing an addition to my #MSWL. We have been seeing some reimagining of legendary folklore or Greek mythology. More of that please. But I'd also love to see a retelling of Hawaiian mythology and/or legends.

#mswl BIPOC mythology! I don't know half as much as I should and I want stories that show me your glorious culture, your timeless stories, and your characters in all their facets. Bonus if it's gay (although strikes me all mythology should be gay!!)

For MG, I would love to see contemporary stories like FROM THE DESK OF ZOE WASHINGTON, STARFISH, and VIOLETS ARE BLUE. I’d also love to see more light fantasy projects inspired by non-western mythology! #MSWL

I am looking for thrillers and crime fiction of all types; book club and historical fiction that moves me and makes me think (including novels featuring fantasy/mythology). In non-fiction, books which open up the conversation and take me on a journey. #mswl

I'm in the mood for some upmarket spec fic based on the Egyptian myths. I would also love to see an angsty, romantic, political, intense high fantasy series centered on Osiris and Isis. #mswl

in fiction and nonfiction, I particularly want to see more BIPOC, disabled, LGBT+ authors (though please don't feel pressured to disclose anything you're not comfortable with)
more indigenous/non-Western culture, mythology, and tropes
