Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme host by The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s TTT is Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist (if you could make authors write about these things you would. Could be a specific type of character, an issue tackled, a time period, a certain plot, etc.)
- Virtual reality/video game centered – I am a HUGE fan of Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and really enjoyed Insignia by S.J. Kincaid. Basically I just want another book that is just as epic as Ready Player One.
- Set in space – After finishing These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner , I realized I haven’t read a book set in space since finishing the Across the Universe trilogy. Space is such a cool setting and I need more YA books that are set in space.
- Modern day Disney – If you love Aladdin and still haven’t picked up The Art Of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar, you should get on that ASAP. While it isn’t an exact retelling of Aladdin but had parallels to the story that made my inner child happy. I want to see more Disney/fairytales set in a modern day, contemporary setting.
- New Adult focused on Friendship – I am all for the steamy romances in NA but that seems to be the only thing in NA. I would love a NA story that has a main focus on friendship or really focused on anything outside of romance.
- YA Retelling of Scarlet Letter – I’ve seen this brought up and even discussed it myself on Twitter. Basically I want the YA novel of the movie Easy A is that too much to ask?
- Companion Series – I love getting more story especially when it is from a minor character who I loved. I really enjoyed Sydney in Vampire Academy and love her in her own series Bloodlines. Why can’t more characters get their own series? I mean come on who wouldn’t want to read about Kenji or Sturmhond more??
- Epic High Fantasy YA – Of course there are epic high fantasy books but most of them are considered adult. I want more like Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight. Or maybe I just want Sarah to write faster (and she already writes pretty damn fast).
- Superheros – Why do they have to be exclusive to comics and graphic novels? I think putting them into a YA setting would be incredibly fun and different!
- A Vicious sequel – I started thinking about superheros and it made me think of Vicious. Vicious by V. E. Schwab was not only one of my favorite adult reads of last year, it was a favorite for the year. Victoria has said on Twitter that there is a chance at a sequel but I NEED IT (so go buy this book).
- A Harry Potter Encyclopedia – do I have to explain myself?
