Since she’s a blogger and Goodreader, Jillian has her finger what’s happening in the book world, so we were challenged with this one.
Adult or YA: Surprise Me
Genres: Dystopia, Fantasy, Paranormal, Steampunk
Narrator/POV: First Person, Third Person, Multiple POV, Present Tense, Past Tense, Female POV, Main Character or Narrator
Swoon Factor: 4
Gross Out Factor: 4
Smut Factor: 3
Fluff Factor: 3
Favorite Books/Themes: Ella Enchanted, Finnikin of the Rock, Froi of the Exiles, Keturah and Lord Death. Why? I love that they take “old” ideas (fairy tales, fantasy world with conspiracies and intrigues, and folk lore, respectively) and bring fresh, engaging spins to them.
Turn Offs: Love triangles, instant love between heroine/hero and love interest, faulty and unengaging world-building
