Where is my retelling of Anne of Green Gables where Diana and Anne kiss? #MSWL

This time every year I wonder why we don't have a YA retelling of the Christmas story (Mary, Joseph, etc): the characters are the right age, the conflict is strong and, depending on your beliefs, it could be read as miracle or magic a la GRAVE MERCY. Hard to pull off, but...#MSWL

As promised, here's my #MSWL for January. As ever I am particularly keen to hear from voices that have historically been unheard in the industry. Looking forward to coming back to lots of fabulous queries!

#WritingCommunity Where are my Joan of Arc retellings? WHERE. Is anyone writing one? Published one? Should I make an #mswl tweet for it? Please I just want to read one

A couple things I REALLY want to read right now.

Historical YA with no magic, especially if its gothic/southern gothic.

Romantic Comedies, but with a new twist or perspective. Example: diverse backgrounds, gender-bending, or a retelling of Shakespeare/fairtales/myths. #mswl

hit me up with your very smartest feminist retellings, your structurally fearless literary fiction, and anything you’d comp to the brilliant Sarah Waters, Lesley Nneka Arimah, Curtis Sittenfeld, or Carmen Maria Machado! #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 24 Sep 2019

Oooh, and retellings too! Shakespearean, myths, other books, etc. #MSWL

Anyone thought of a Count of Monte Cristo retelling, but from the woman he left behind's perspective? And she's the badass getting into sword fights and proving his innocence? #MSWL

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · 24 Sep 2019

Other random elements I love: historical fiction, witches (historical and contemporary, but less on the humorous side), boarding schools, food, slow build romance, whimsy, retellings...#MSWL

#MSWL - #YA: I am STILL waiting for my contemporary re-telling of COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO.

#MSWL - #YA: I've become so much pickier in terms of genre fiction because I want to see something new. Give me a new twist on court intrigue or "chosen" ones. More contemporary fantasies/magical realism. Retellings of new/different stories.
