  1. I would have to say, don't mind my answer I'm weird,...mermaids & Dystopian. I mean mermaids have become a popular recently why not combine it to Dystopian. Great Question =)

  2. I like contemporary and historical fiction together. Like in Waterfall by Lisa Bergren where a contemporary MC goes back in time so then it's a historical fiction. Fun fun!

  34. Historical dystopian sounds great to me! That would combine two of my favorites. I think that Masque of the Red Death kind of seemed like that, what with the carriages (or else that was a mix of steampunk and dystopian). Either way, I really liked that story. Thanks for the chance to win.

  35. I think mixing the supernatural, like Fey, with Post Apocalyptic would be interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm a huge dystopian fan, so I like the idea of adding fantasy/paranormal to the mix. But I also feel like alternative reality is overlooked. So it would be fun to see an alternate reality with fairies. Or a dystopian alternate reality. :)

    ReplyDelete
