Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 12374 comments Mod
Can anyone tell me if The Magician's Nephew can be classified as YA Sci-Fi?


Lauren (Sugar & Snark) | 1260 comments Mod
I would classify it as children's fantasy. There is no "science" in it and quite honestly it was very juvenile. But hey I'm no expert :)


message 14: by Claudia (new)

Claudia (claudiavstoomanybooks) | 1779 comments Mod
Also not an expert, but I have read it and I think it falls squarely in Children's Fantasy.

Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 12374 comments Mod
Hehe thanks, I found another book for the challenge anyway


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 12374 comments Mod
Narrated by a non-human suggestions?


message 17: by Claudia (new)

Claudia (claudiavstoomanybooks) | 1779 comments Mod
"Narrated", so it has to be written in first person?


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 12374 comments Mod
I assume so, can a Vampire, Ghost etc count?


message 19: by Claudia (new)

Claudia (claudiavstoomanybooks) | 1779 comments Mod
I was wondering that myself.
Ghost The Ghost and the Goth
Shifter Nightshade
Faery changeling The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Will those work? Or are we talking ogres, aliens and robots? :P


Lauren (Sugar & Snark) | 1260 comments Mod
I would think so, I chose Vanish which is a shape shifting dragon girl not your typical "non human" but I think any of the suggestions above count.


message 21: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Smith I assume non-human would apply to any creature other than a normal human being, so I agree that the above suggestions should count.

Also just wanted to add a note about the journey task, as this is not mentioned in the list of tasks - the journey has to form a significant part of the story, ie. a decent amount of chapters devoted to travelling. If a character just hops on a plane/train/boat and goes to another country in the space of a chapter or something, it doesn't count.

Hey you guys, it is with great sadness that I have to inform you that I am withdrawing from this challenge :(
I have checked my library and I just haven't got the books for this one and I have to buy like 20 books to be able to complete this challenge and I would rather read books I already have and buying books I really really want than reading and buying books that I have to read to complete a challenge.
