R is for Rebellious

(re·bel·lious): defying or resisting some established authority

Now there’s no real authority when it comes to writing a book but this goes with what I keep saying every post. A book should be different! That is the key point here. I want an author to be a little rebellious when they write a story. Do something that might not work for everyone but turns out to be fantastic.

A great example for this is Allegiant by Veronica Roth. The ending went either badly or great depending on who you are. She took a huge risk with that ending but everyone was talking about it right? That’s the point! Even if you loved the whole series up until that point I bet you still remember that ending and you probably will for a long time.

Here’s some more examples:

  • A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
  • The Selection by Kiera Cass
  • Allegiant by Veronica Roth
  • Tithe by Holly Black


Happy Reading!

  1. The Selection is part of my A-Z Challenge theme, and I’ll be blogging about it tomorrow, but we had different ideas about this book, lol. I need to get to Tithe, I keep hearing good things about that one!

    • I’m not sure how I feel about The Selection yet. It’s rebellious for sure but I’m not sure if I’m going to like it in the end. Some things I’ll like but others are really stupid. I think I’m just waiting for the end at this point haha.
