Awesome Lists

  • The Ultimate Fall 2019 Books Preview (Literary Hub)
  • 50 Shades and More: 11 Published Fan Fiction books (Book Riot) Or rather, books that originated as fanfic. The list completely ignores the obvious “published fanfics” that were traditionally published from the start—Sherlock Holmes pastiches like Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell series, for example, or fairytale-inspired books like the Lunar Chronicles. Instead, the books on this list were actually first posted on fanfic sites, then further edited and modified for publication.

    Seriously? The Harry Potter books are going to summon evil spirits? Well, I suppose book banning counts as an evil spirit, right? So this is self-fulfilling.

    I love that my “audiobooks are reading” mantra has now been acknowledged in a scientific study. Nice links!
