m I saying this right? I’m going to admit something: I was a bit confused on what this actually meant. I may have googled it. But, now that I know, I totally got this *nervous laugh*. Here’s my list:
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
This is a Western/Arabian type of mixup. With shoot outs, Demdjin and all that good stuff, it does it quite well. I would’ve never thhought to mix the two.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I know the majority of people who have read this series names it as just a retelling. But, what about the Dystopian, Sci-fi, Fantasy aspects to it? We can’t forget those.
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
This has the theme of magic vs. science, while having an “end of the world” plot device all together. It’s a bit weird, yet very introspective.
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
Oh, this beautiful gem of a book. It’s a Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Magical Realism type of book. It flows so smoothly you don’t really notice, though.
Jackaby by William Ritter
I completely forgot about this one, too. I only read the first book, but I remember the Fantasy, Mystery, Paranormal aspects in it.
Have you read any of these? Did I get it right? Let me know in the comments below!
