Welcome to Books Open The World!
Here’s how our site works: we’re going to feature highly rated books that are great for your imagination.
What Constitutes an “Imaginative Book”?
An imaginative novel is the opposite of cliche. It tells a story in a unique way. It uses fantastical or supernatural elements in a cool new way. It leaves certain elements of the plot to your imagination…in a skillful way that enhances the story itself.
In other words, you can pin it down into a definition. But what we’ll do is feature books that we feel will challenge and inspire your imaginative abilities as readers.
