LikeThisTryThis - Featuring Spark and others

I said in my review for Spark (an all-time favorite of mine) that it resembled classic teen television with character-driven plots that would be perfect for a TV adaptation. Take out Spark's elemental magic and you have four brothers with as many family skeletons as the Scott family from One Tree Hill. 

Touch of Frost has the magical whimsy of Harry Potter and without a doubt a plot that could extend for seven books. There's just so much richness to the world. And plus, there's a villain that seems as deathly terrifying as Lord Voldemort. 

Blood Red Road and Scarlet share so many similar qualities, but I'd say above all else, these two protagonists rival men and take their lives into their own hands. Both would spark great feminist theory. 


What do you think? Have you read any of these books? Agree with the comparisons? Leave your lovely comments below!

  1. I love your comparisons! One Tree Hill is like one of the only WB/CW shows I haven't watched but I definitely know about the "brotherly tension". I love how you compared HP to Mythos Academy. I totally agree! Loki is uber-villain-y just like Voldemort.

    1. Lol, I love One Tree Hill as well. The best part about Spark is definitely the characters, and I'd say the same thing about One Tree Hill too.

    1. Same here (about your comment for OTH). When Peyton and Lucas left, everything went downhill. But I still cried during the series finale.
