Retelling

Maggie Cooper @frecklywench · Sep 24

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

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

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.

Replying to @annmrose

Retellings - Give me your obscure or different retellings where the princess saves the prince (or the other princess 😉) where it's clear it's a retelling but at the same time completely unique (like Cinder) #MSWL

#MSWL Retellings. But not like the ones we see all the time. And make it interesting. Make a commentary.

#MSWL Still on the lookout for inventive fairytale or folklore retellings--especially stories that haven't been done often.

Forever and always, more retellings of lesser known mythology, fairy tales, and classical lit. Especially if it blends with an unexpected genre. #MSWL

#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
