But I need suggestions.
What are some works you'd like to see analyzed this way? And what, from your reading of the blog, do you think I'd enjoy?
Please limit your suggestions to (in order of preference) YA, Women's, and/or Literary Fiction. I suppose if there's a great work of Sci Fi out there, that'd be fine too, but I think most of you are writing in the above three genres, so they'd be the most helpful.
Please comment with the name of the work, its author, a line of summary, and (if applicable) something you'd wondered specifically about the work (ie, "Is it just me or is the writing terrible?").
Then, as you see comments build, you are welcome to say, "I second ______," or "I hated ____, don't bother" or "Instead of _____, try _____, and look for _____."
Books in paperback are much preferred; books I can get from the library are best of all. I'll choose based on the following factors:
- Your votes
- Book availability (library, paperback v hardcover, etc.)
- Plot (if it looks like something I'd be interested in.)
Your prize, if I choose the work you nominate? My copy of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, mailed to you. It's a paperback in fine condition. So, please include your e-mail address, or a method of contacting you. If you've chosen an alias, send a mailing address and your alias to AgencyGatekeeper@gmail.com. It's fine if you'd like to stay anonymous by choosing an e-mail address that doesn't have your name in it.
