Kate Brauning @KateBrauningI would love a modern YA Samson and Delilah, any genre. I'd also love an M/M historical, modern, or fantasy retelling of David and Jonathan #MSWL
OMG yes #mswl
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzI'm reading Circe by Madeline Miller right now and loving the hell out of it. Witches and gods and monsters and mortals... Feminist retellings of classic mythology is the BEST genre. Yeah, I just made it a genre of it's own. And every bookstore should have a section for it.
Let’s do this 👇🏽 #mswl
and lastly (for now), on my #MSWL, I'd love to see a spooky, modern retelling of any of the classical Mythology stories set in the PNW. Think Lizzie Bennet Diaries, but with creepy mythology characters instead. (please, someone, give me this, I NEED IT)
Outlander @Outlander_STARZIt’s June 1 and you know what that means…we’re celebrating #WorldOutlanderDay! From us to you, thanks for being a part of our clan. pic.twitter.com/1B7lgxCW4J
Agents—I’m still looking for a YA Outlander re-telling/ YA time travel submission...just sayin’ 😉 #MSWL
Kelly @YAFantasyFanThanks to @whitleyabell, I'm now dying for a fantastical YA Harley Quinn retelling. #MSWL Someone send me this, please! pic.twitter.com/pcDbDtMedY
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansToday's #mswl: secondary world low fantasy inspired by Hannibal's march on Italy.
ALSO! #mswl: secondary world low or high fantasy retelling of the rise of Shaka kaSenzangakhona, better known as Shaka Zulu. Please and thank you!
#MSWL still looking for my gender-swapped Hercules retelling (or LGBT+ Hercules!). Also still on the hunt for a great underwater escapade, perhaps mermaids (creepy or complicated, not typical-disney feel) but not mandatory.
All joking aside, I never actually wanted to make out with a person's voice until I heard Brendon Urie sing for the first time. Would love an #ownvoices retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac with three cute boys and a high school musical. #MSWL #LGBT
Lisa Rodgers @_LisaRodgers#mswl I'd love to see a wildfire story. I'm equal opportunity on the setting -- campers/hikers? Surburanites? I want to see survival and moving on. Also, I'm from CA, so wildfires affecting urban settings is something I'm used to seeing (alas).
#mswl I'm still looking for my Donner Party retelling! I think would YA would be kick-ass, but adult Donner Party retellings are also 💯.
#MSWL for YA:
~ a FAUST retelling
~ a plot that brings to mind Ibsen's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE
~ Grumpy antiheroes who can't seem to be evil (despite how they try) / humor is a plus!
