Thursday, December 29th: Elements of Fiction

Crossed by Ally Condie   Most Envy-Inducing Plot--fun ride!

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi   Most Wonderful World-Building--ignored grammatical rules and litterally stacked emotional words to entice feeling and intensity

Enclave by Ann Aguire   Most Formidable World--the girl was born underground and travelled the subway and sewer systems--icky!

Wildefire by Karsten Knight   Wanderlust-Inducing--would be fun going away to school in the California's wilderness

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi   Loveliest Prose--felt like I was reading poetry amped up on adrenaline!

Through Her Eyes by Jennifer Archer    Best First Line--"I died on a bitter, cold night."

Divergent by Veronica Roth   Most Dynamic Main Character--Tris is awesome!

Wildefire  by Karsten Knight   Most Jaw-Dropping Finale--don't want to spoil it, but there's a great character shift

Unbecoming of Mara Dyer  by Michelle  Best Performance in a Supporting Role--great story, needs to be mentioned somewhere on here

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi Best Use of Theme--the numbers theme is carried beautifully throughout


  1. Yowsa...Shatter Me cleaned up the awards here.

  2. I agree with Micheal, I know I keep saying this, but I really need to pick that one up!

  3. sorry Michael! I have a cousin that spells his name that crazy way so it's a habit for me...

  4. Shatter Me is awesome! The writing style is adrenaline pumping and emotionally filled and defies conventions. I loved it, obviously :)
