Christine US (christineus) | 572 comments I assume any of the standard paranormal type creatures would work? Ghost, vampire, werewolf, demon/angel?

Any book that would fairly be characterized as science fiction/fantasy/paranormal works for this task.

kiki (keekers) | 821 comments would you accept The Year of the Flood? i see it shelved as sci-fi by some...it's definitely dystopian, but not sure that necessarily makes it sci-fi.

As much as I'd love to go to Hogwarts myself, I have to say that they're fantasy, so they work!

lol, well there is that theme park in Orlando you could try... I would love to go there!

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 832 comments Haha...it isn't a theme park. With a little magic anything is possible...even the relocation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry :)

Would Dune work? It's definitely science fiction, in my opinion. :P

Juli (julifabulous) | 63 comments i'm going to read The Battle of the Labyrinth for this task. I read the first 2 books of the series in the Winter challenge, and plan on reading the 3rd book for the Going Green task this time.

certainly - it's fantasy.


message 20: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) | 2253 comments I was wondering if The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane would be OK for this task. On its main page fantasy is one of the popular shelves listed but I wasn't sure.

From the description, I don't think it really fits this one.


message 22: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) | 2253 comments Thanks for answering so quickly Sandy. I'll use it somewhere else.

Kristen (kristenlovesbooks) Thank you, Sandy! ☺

Carrie (goodreadscomkeridwynn) | 196 comments I was wondering if the upcoming book Steel (to be released on March 15th), which involves time travel (and pirates) and dark magic, would count for this task?

time travel and magic sounds like fantasy to me!


message 26: by Carrie (new)

Carrie (goodreadscomkeridwynn) | 196 comments Yay! Thank you, Sandy :)


message 27: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) | 2253 comments I was wondering if the "In Death" books by J.D. Robb would fit this task Sandy.

Or would Sabotaged by Margaret Peterson Haddix work?

The "in Death" books work. So does Sabotaged. You're choice. (Sandy's on vacation. ;o))

TeresaFL | 96 comments So would Wicked Lovely work? She can see faeries so that puts it in the fantasy category for me but wanted to check on it.

Rachel (lambfox) | 187 comments Is it okay if I read two shorter fantasy books? They are: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling (42 pgs, fantasy) and The Twits by Roald Dahl (96 pgs, fantasy).
