c.j.'s selections                         ten ten ten


one
History is All You Left Me - Adam Silvera 

All of the crying I did internally would have been greatly improved by gratuitous scenes of goblins dancing. 
two
    

And the Trees Crept In - Dawn Kurtagich 

You know who else likes creeper manor houses surrounded by creeper woods and creeper men?  Goblins.  
three
       
Queen of Shadows - S.J. Maas 

Celaena should have been a goblin. And it should have been half as long. And had 100 fewer uses of the word "male." And been less boring. *hides* 
four
       

Illuminae - Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 

If we're far enough into the future that we have multiple universes and warp speed, then there FREAKING NEED TO BE GOBLINS IN SPACE.    

five
       
The Diviners - Libba Bray 

Picture: A goblin sits alone in the corner booth of the jazz club, a tiny fedora propped over one pointed ear, a comically-sized cigar dangling out of his mouth, a gin in one hand.  Enter Evie. 

six
     
Outrun the Moon - Stacey Lee 

A massive goblin army would have been a helpful addition to Mercy's impromptu pop-up soup kitchen. And imagine all those tiny deft hands digging up earthquake victims!  
seven
     
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock - Matthew Quick 

Can you imagine if Leonard had a tiny goblin friend who followed him around while he was on his end-of-days quest?  That goblin would have been like, "STOP IT LIVE OKAY YOU'RE AWESOME." 
eight
     
The Dark Unwinding - Sharon Cameron 

So imagine if the secret were actually an underground army of clockwork goblins preparing to storm into France at the back of the English army.  
nine
     
We Were Liars - E. Lockhart 

The real twist: EVERYONE WAS A GOBLIN THE WHOLE TIME. 
ten
     
The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater 

Ravens are great and all, but what if The Raven Boys were actually The Goblin Boys?  And Cabeswater was the home of the goblins?  And Gansey was actually a stack of three goblins wearing a blond wig and a pink polo?  




Your turn!  What books do you think would be improved by adding goblins? (Answer: All of them.)
