The First YA novel by one of my favorite adult authors



By: Carol Goodman

Genre: YA fantasy/Paranormal

Pages: 496

Published: 2013

Read: November

3 out of 5

I am completely over fantasy/paranormal novels. Not that I was ever a huge fan, but I am unable to be absorbed into stories about faeries, brownies, and demons anymore. In YA,  it seems to be almost the only genre anymore. I love Carol Goodman. She is one of my top 5 adult authors, however even her last adult series (Fairwick Chronicles written as Juliet Dark) was in the paranormal genre. This novel is still uniquely written in Goodman's language and takes place on a school campus with a focus on literature, so in that manner I loved the story. This novel will be enjoyed by fans of paranormal and fantasy and especially Harry Potter and Hunger Games groupies.  Blythewood has characteristics of both those YA series.
