Are you the devil? I have three contenders and choosing one is hard. But I think I’ll go with Ask the Passengers by A.S. King. I love that book so much.
Ohohoho I’m already having too much fun with this. It’d be a dystopian – and I mean full-blown dystopia like Hunger Games or 1984, although something slightly more subtle like Never Let Me Go would do too. In what could be the now, or in a parallel universe, or in the near future. Definitely lesbian, only a little romance but mostly action and conspiracy and all that fun stuff. A trilogy maybe? With a semi-happy ending, but bittersweet would do. I would not be the one writing it, but after reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series I 100% want Laini Taylor to be the author. /excited just thinking about it
How to Repair a Mechanical Heart by J.C. Lillis because roadtrip and summer and easy read. The perfect summer/beach book!
So books that are not on my shelf/ordered yet… Her Name in the Sky by Kelly Quindlen, Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour, Obscura Burning by Suzanne Van Rooyen, Birds on a Wire by Ellen Mulholland, and Beautiful Music for Ugly Children by Kirstin Cronn-Mills. (Although I preordered Lies we Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley and wouldn’t mind getting that for free instead of one of the others haha)
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley! And her novel after that, Unbreakable. They both just sound so good!
So many are waiting on my shelf as we speak! Pantomime by Laura Lam. Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden. Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Beth Griffin. Dutch Schijnbewegingen by Floortje Zwigtman. And I could go on and on.
Malinda Lo, because while so far I have not absolutely loved her books, I think she is a very interesting author (and consistently writes LGBT). Amber from Adaptation and Astrid from Ask the Passengers. And then Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone… and then I was out of ideas so let’s just invite Akiva and Ziri too because I’m far too obsessed with Daughter of Smoke and Bone and it seems like a laugh to introduce an angel and a chimaera amirite. The party would take place in one of my three favourite cities in Europe: London, Vienna or Prague. Because they all scream High Tea party. I’ll let my visitors pick.
