Hello! Welcome to my thread! I’ve officially emptied my “To Read” reading list and need some new things to read. I’m a really picky reader, so please read the following criteria before deciding to post. If I find your story interesting it will be added to my “To Read” reading list. Note: I will not accept all the stories given to me. If I accept your story, I will like your post.
The criteria (i.e. What I Like) (make sure you specify which of the following your story satisfies):
-Greek Mythology (open to anything from this area, but I’m particularly partial to Hades and Persephone, Thanatos and Macaria, Charon, Hera (not stereotyped as a rude and angry Goddess), Aphrodite (not stereotyped as an airhead or an overly promiscuous Goddess)
-Paranormal/supernatural (specifically vampires (in fact vampires are my favourite supernatural creature), witches, faeries, mermaids/sirens, elementals, and dragons) (NOTE: if your story falls under the werewolf area, feel free to post it, but you’ll have to convince me, since I’m not usually one for werewolf stories (I’m not against them, I just don’t follow the lore associated with them as extensively as I do vampires and I often see common tropes with werewolf stories), so specify the thing that makes yours different from the others)
-romance (AND LOTS OF IT)
-I’m good with mature as long as you tell me why
-stories that break stereotypes (e.g. damsels in distress)
-I wouldn’t mind a male POV either, but if you don’t have one that’s fine.
-completed stories are preferred (please specify if it is complete)!!! But if it’s near complete, I’ll accept it as well (if it’s near complete, please specify how many chapters are left and how often you update).
-fairytale retellings are acceptable and welcome
-stories featuring royalty are also welcome
What I don’t like:
-Mental health being portrayed in a disrespectful and stereotypical manner
-damsels in distress
-MCs that are really passive
-submissive mates and dominant alphas
-vampires and human pets
-things that dehumanize people
Post your recs and stories below and make sure you specify the criteria that fits your story.
