But with the recent trend of taking classics (cough, cough Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) and adding horror elements (zombies, vampires, sea monsters, etc.), I've been thinking it would be fun to do the opposite. Take well-known horror books and twist them about.
Like turning Frankenstein into a romance, adding a Beauty and the Beast element to it. Creating a heroine that could love the monster for who he is. I don't know what this says about me, that I think love could turn things around here, but I think he deserves a chance at happiness.
I wish there were a few YA authors out there willing to have some fun with Frankenstein.
