One of my favorite newer trends is the mixed format book. Traditional novels include just paragraphs within chapters. Occasionally, you might find a picture or two but the book is primarily just blocks of text.
The books featured on this list reject such a traditional idea of a book. These books have:
- Audio Transcripts
- Diary entries
These books are fascinating ways to tell a story. They’re also a wonderful way to grab the attention of a struggling reader.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
The Illumine Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Our Last Echoes by Kate Alice Marshall
#MurderTrending by Gretchen McNeil
The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
Sadie by Courtney Summers
Obviously these aren’t the only titles that fit this formatting. Instead, they’re the ones I’ve read and come to mind when I thought about this type of formatting.
