Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
This week's topic is: Top Ten Books That Would Be On Your Syllabus If You Taught Fantasy vs. Dystopian 101
*in no particular order
Oh yes this will be a fun class in seeing the differences between Fantasy (the past...or is it?) and the possible bleak future!!
THE FANTASY READS:
1. THE KISS OF DECEPTION by Mary E. Pearson--a wonderful fantasy series that is just awesome! Especially in its ability to trick the reader!
2. FALLING KINGDOMS by Morgan Rhodes--loove this series, so we're including it! Plus I think it's a fine example of multiple points of view, but keeping the reader's focus on the story and not making them confused!
3. SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch--read this earlier this year and can only remember loving it! So hence, it's in the syllabus!
4. A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas--the prefect blend of fantasy and faeries and fairy tale!
5. POISON STUDY by Maria V. Snyder--because it's awesome and an amazing series! Plus it was practically my first fantasy read and I thought it was well done in creating a fantasy world and not making it overly confusing!
6. ANGEL BURN by L.A. Weatherly--a creepy future where angels are trying to rid Earth of humans!
7. UNDER THE NEVER SKY by Veronica Rossi--another dismal and bleak future taking place on Earth!
8. THE VAULT OF DREAMERS by Caragh M. O'Brien--a deceptively creepy read where you never know who to trust in this futuristic setting!
9. DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth--because despite Allegiant, I really did enjoy this series that was practically my first dystopian! So yes, this is included in the syllabus!
10. POISON PRINCESS by Kresley Cole--a creepy future where nearly everyone on Earth is dead and gone, except a remaining few who are caught in a deadly game? Will the past repeat itself as it has time and again? Seriously?! LOVE this series and need the next book!!!
