As I was reading a new book this weekend, I started to think, “wow this book feels a lot like Ella Enchanted, but for adults.” And so, a new blog idea was born.
Here are a few titles that I think you may enjoy based on beloved children’s books:
Why? Quentin is obsessed with the children’s books about a magical land called Fillory (a land that takes inspiration from Narnia). So Imagine the wonder that Quentin will experience after first being told he’s a magician and going to a university for magic, and then finding out that Fillory is real.
Why? Constance Verity was given a gift by her fairy godmother when she was just an infant, to have a life of adventure. But the problem with a life of adventure is that it never ends, she can’t even go out to lunch without aliens attacking. Constance wants a normal life and that means one last adventure, killing her fairy godmother.

Why? Greek myth meets Manhattan as Selene tries to solve a string of murders.
Why? Locke and his friends delight in being the best thieves and fooling even the most dangerous of men, but then the Grey King threatens to destroy the city, Locke vows to beat him no matter the costs. If you loved the strong world building and characters from The Thief, you’ll find yourself lost in Locke’s world.
