#MSWL I’d love to see some Latinx/Jewish contemporary YA... Or a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with the protagonists both devout but different religions... Or a great MG mystery that more Mo LeBeau and less Nancy Drew & ClueCrew.

My bizarre fascination with these girl scammer stories—and the toxic friendships they rely on—means I’m craving a fiction YA (and age-appropriate) retelling! #MSWL

Is it too much for my #YA #MSWL to just consist of spooky but funny retellings of the Headless Horseman ?

I still really want a retelling of Persuasion. #MSWL

(This is my sneaky way of getting more people to read this under appreciated classic and getting on the Wentworth ship 😉)

I spent my vacation reading every Holmes/Watson fic on The Seventeenth Step and am now craving a genuinely queer Sherlock Holmes YA retelling, historical or contemporary #mswl

Just finished The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. It was beyond wonderful! Where are all of my fairytale/legend retellings? I want Eastern European and East Asian myths and legends sooo bad! #MSWL
