a quick FYI for my #mswl:

i love retellings (fairytale, mythology, etc.) and am always happy to see them in my box!

HOWEVER, i *do not* like super obvious retellings. they HAVE to be subtle for me to like them - think ACOTAR and ACOMAF, CINDER, or FOR THE WOLF

#MSWL In YA: Ever on the hunt for my light-hearted Jewish rom-com. Particularly interested in the trend toward more traditional mysteries (see TRULY DEVIOUS, GOOD GIRLS, ACE OF SPADES) with a strong investigative drive. Always have room for smart, high-concept contemp retellings.

Gender-flipped contemporary Cinderella retelling, except I want โ€œCinโ€ to be damaged, the bad boy, who needs rescuing in true enemies-to-lovers fashion by his โ€œprincess.โ€ Make him sympathetic & redeemable at first. Make us only really like him as the plot develops. #MSWL

I LOVE retellings of stories but not so keen on a classic or fairy tale or Shakespeare or Bible story or whatever being retold in a contemporary setting. I know that's a thing. It's just not MY thing. #MSWL

Mainlined all of Lupin last night & this afternoon, and it is SO EXTREMELY MY SHIT! A kind-of retelling where the source material exists in-universe and the characters are consciously riffing on it? Meta af, sign me up. Also an eternal #mswl
