(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
