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.
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*
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?
