Spotlight on At Midnight ed. by Dahlia Adler

I don't normally do spotlights for books or bookish news posts anymore, but I had to for this book because I absolutely cannot wait for this book! My excitement is ridiculous, I'm telling you.

Last Thursday, Dahlia Adler - Queen of LGBTQReads, YA author of novels including Cool for the Summer, Just Visiting, and Home Field Advantage coming later this year, and editor of Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe retellings anthologies, That Way Madness Lies and His Hideous Heart respectively - revealed the cover for her latest anthology, At Midnight. A YA anthology of 15 diverse fairy tale retellings, At Midnight is publishing on 22nd November 2022 from Flatiron Books.

You've got to check out Dahlia's Twitter thread where she lists each story's title, and the spins on the original fairy tales we'll be getting in At Midnight. A gender-reimagined, sapphic Rumlplestiltskin from Dahlia herself, a hijabi Little Red Riding Hood from Hafsah Faizal, a trans Snow White from H. E. Edgmon, an Indigenous Puss in Boots from Darcie Little Badger, and many more! And if you're taking part in my Fairy Tale Retellings 2022 Reading Challenge, it counts for the prompt for a collection or anthology of fairy tale retellings, and several others! Honestly, it's going to be incredible! So get pre-ordering!
