Booklovinglady Seems to me some voters didn't quite understand the description.... (Houses of the Presidents: Childhood Homes, Family Dwellings, Private Escapes, and Grand Estates, for instance?) Or maybe my interpretation is wrong, who knows...

Yeah, several of these books aren't quite what I intended, but I'm not sure if I can take them off...

Why not? You're the creator of the list. I have no hesitation removing titles from my own lists when people don't play by the rules...

I've already helped you out a bit as the description says "subtitles don't count", so I've deleted lots of books which were depending on their subtitle to match the description.

I've left all books which start with 'the' instead of 'a', and I've also left the ones which don't have either (but could have had), as that's up to you to decide really.

Cassidy I mean I don't know HOW to take them off. I can't figure it out

Ah.... I assumed you were a librarian (which it turns out you're not). Let me know which ones, if any, you'd like removed and I'll do it for you. This also goes for future books; just leave a message and I'll see it and remove the books for you :-)

Cassidy I actually am a librarian, of the physical book kind. :) I'll look into getting Goodreads librarian status

Elias Ah, THE most cliched title in YA fantasy. It was cool seven years ago when Daughter of Smoke and Bone-- wonderful book, that-- came out, but it has since become the easiest way to distinguish true epic fantasy from watered-down, commercial teen romance in a fantasy mask (there ARE exceptions, like Children of Blood and Bone). When I see one of these titles I'll assume that it's a commercially-minded, generic, romance-driven, fantasy-lite, blandly-written assembly-line story indistinguishable from every other new book made by charts, other books and social media trends. And yet I'll still by them if they look awesome enough. Myself, I can't wait for Ship of Smoke and Steel!
