SHORTLIST UPDATE: This is my first update and I’ve added four more titles to date and die into.

I’m still primarily interested in stories with paranormal or supernatural ingredients, but any story will peak my interest if it’s either a great story (allegedly), or one that’s been hugely successful. Tacky, tasteless and terrible ones will also get a chance, as the object of this whole adventure is to get a better idea of what works and what doesn’t in storytelling. And why.

Q3 Titles to Date

001)   The Twilight Saga, Stephenie Meyer

002)   All Souls Trilogy, Deborah Harkness

003)   The Shadowhunter Chronicles, Cassandra Clare

004)   Fallen Series, Lauren Kate

005)   Vampire Academy/Bloodlines, Richelle Mead

006)   Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon

007)   Dracula, Bram Stoker

008)   The Ice People Legend, Margit Sandemo

The questions that made me start this little project were:

– What is a good story?

– What makes a story bad?

And is there a way we can learn to identify whether our own stories are good or bad? Or, at the very least, passable? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Do you have any titles you think I should add to my list? Any titles you think might fit my objective? Please, let me know in the comments below or hit me up via socials/email.

Thanks for reading my blog today. I hope you had a good time and look forward to seeing you again.

Much love,

//Evalena 😘
