Nominated by Ali of Fantastic Reads
This year I read some fantastic UKYA novels in a wide variety of genres. The one that particularly sticks in my mind is JD Sharpe’s Oliver Twisted, from the fantastic Electric Monkey. It’s a great horror/Dickens mash-up, which works really well whether you know the Dickens novel or not. Given the original’s emphasis on hunger, consumption and the body, the transformation of Dickens’ characters into warlocks, cannibals, vampires and zombies really works for me.
