Robin – Most Interesting Premise


  1. Nobody’s Ghoul by Devon Monk – The gods vacation in the little town of Ordinary and this time around a Ghoul has infiltrated the town somehow and all the gods most dangerous weapons keep showing up at their doorstep.
  2. Gilded by Marissa Meyer – Very Very loose retelling of Rumpelstiltskin if you also mixed in some fae lore with Michael’s Wild Ride and seven different gods just for good measure.
  3. Middlegame by Seanan McGuire – Roger and Dodger genetically engineered to be a perfect pair.  He is language she is math and together they can make or destroy our world.
  4. Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher – A nun princess, a witch and an ex-knight go on a quest to save the nun’s sister from a fate worse than death.
  5. Verity by Colleen Hoover – She is supposed to ghost write a book, he is married to the author currently in a vegetative state.  She finds a diary of their past and just might be falling in love with a married man.  But the more of the diary she reads the less she thinks things in this big house are anything like they seem.
  6. Locklands by Robert Jackson Bennett – A sentient key gets a body and gets to be a real boy as it goes on a quest with friends to save the world from being rewritten into something completely different.
  7. The Other Side of the Sky by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – Nimh is a living goddess and cannot be touched.  She lives on the earth with the priesthood.  North is a prince of the sky and thought the people on land died out generations ago when his people escaped to the side.  He was wrong but then again so was she.
  8. Greywarren by Maggie Steifvater – Dreamers can pull things out of dreams, the dreams themselves go to sleep if their dreamer dies.  But what if there was a way to keep all the dreams a dreamer ever dreamed alive even after they died and what could a dreamer do to this world if there was just more power to keep the dreams awake.
  9. Where the Drowned Girls Go by Seanan McGuire – There are doors in this world that you can walk through if you are sure.  Doors that take you to where you were meant to be instead of this place that doesn’t fit you.  But sometimes the door sends you back to the world you don’t belong in.  How can you get back to the place you were always meant to be.
  10. Bastille vs. the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson – Librarians are evil and they’ve been controlling information and lying to those of us in this mundane world our whole lives.  The Smedry’s are a family with unique powers like breaking things and showing up late protected by a special order of knights and set on saving the world from…you guessed it the evil librarians.

  1. Jen

    Fun topics! I am looking forward to the new Kate Daniels book coming in January! Best New to Me author I read in 2022 was probably Cass Kay.

  2. The Crescent City series is something I really want to read too! I’ve heard it’s really good but the books are so thick, it’s a little daunting!

  3. I love the Kate Burkholder series Anne, the 2022 book almost made my 20 list
    You’ve made want to take a look at some of your premise choices Robin
    Everyone is new to me except Lauren Willig on your list Sophia Rose

    Happy New Year, Happy Reading in 2023

    • Thanks for sharing Shelleyrae! It’s so fun to see what others liked and some of yours also made my top lists. I can’t narrow down to 10 so I have to have 6 days of top 10 in slightly different categories. I probably would have added it to Top 10 Reads rather than Your Choice but it works here too.
