It's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the lovely folks over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is about the Top Ten Things on our Reading Wishlist-those characters, settings, themes, trends, etc that we want more of in our reading!
I had a lot of fun thinking about this list. Please let me know what things would be on your reading wishlist!
- Strong Heroines: I like a girl with sass and attitude. So give me more of them.
- Well-crafted worlds: I started off my year by reading A Game of Thrones, which, let me tell you, takes place in a very well-crafted world. I love being able to disappear into another world like that!
- Revenge: I LOVE revenge themes! Maybe a reread of The Count of Monte Cristo is in order!
- Victorians: I love the Victorian writers, and it has been some time since I've read one!
- Cats who aren't evil: Why are cats always the bad guys? The bad omens?
- Redemption: This is another one of those themes that I've been yearning for....
- Inventive Fantasy: I see a lot of the same things in fantasy literature....I'm looking for something new!
- Better Book Covers: Granted, not a writer driven category, but I really love a book cover and nothing has caught my eye recently!
- A non-orphaned hero: I know orphans make things easier for writers, but for once, can we have a hero with both parents? Just once?
- No more dystopia: I've read too many of them. I want something else!
