Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish.
I was actually going to skip this one… because I found it incredibly hard to come up with Ten Reading Wishes. After spending the day thinking about it, and scribbling some ideas in my notebook, as well as peeking at other people’s lists I managed to come up with Ten Reading Wishes that I’m fairly happy about!
ass. The best example I can give you is Celaena Sardothien from Crown of Midnight. I posted my review only this afternoon and Celaena is the best female lead character ever. She’s confident, fierce, ruthless, at times arrogant and sarcastic, while at the same time flirtatious and playful. I don’t mind if characters have flaws, not at all! But I do want them to be strong and badass! More characters like Celaena Sardothien? Yes please!
Actually, I just finished reading a book about a music blogger: Stargazing from Nowhere. Unfortunately, while the premises where great, I had some really mixed feelings about the story and ended up not really liking the book at all. It was a shame really. As a blogger myself I really wouldn’t mind a good book about the life of a blogger. I don’t know, let the blogger fall in love with somebody he or she regularly blogs about. I don’t know… Just write! haha.
Every year, around the same time, I get the urge to read a good Christmas YA. And every year I find that there just aren’t that many Christmas YA novels. It’s shame really, because what would be better than curling up with a good Christmas read, right before Christmas?
While I don’t really mind a good and well-written love-triangle, I do often find myself annoyed whenever another one makes an appearance. There’s just too many of them lately. So cutting back on the love-triangles would make me a very happy girl.
Thinking back, I haven’t read many books that have a male narrative. Maybe there are lots out there that I just don’t know about (If there are, please leave the titles in the comments!) or maybe there really aren’t that many out there. Anyhow, I’d like to read some more books from a guy’s perspective.
There are quite some good retellings out there! For instance Scarlet, a retelling and a very original take on the classic story of Robin Hood, or Another Little Piece of My Heart, a great retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. I love retellings, that is if they are well-done and original, so I wouldn’t mind reading some more!
As a big sister myself, I would really like to see some more stories about the relationship between sisters. I don’t mind some romance, but I think it would be really refreshing to read a book in which romance isn’t the main theme, but the relationship between sisters is!
This one is pretty alike as the Reading Wish I mentioned above, but instead of just sisters, the whole bunch (aka the siblings). Let the madness that can be the relationship between siblings show! Show me the love, the fights, the everything!
No insta-love. Instead, go for the Slow-Burn Romances! Let me feel the tension, and all the feels! The process of falling in love or the process of building your relationship and make it stronger. Let it develop, and let me feel all the feelings that come with it.
This has been on my mind for quite some time, maybe because I have a weakness for crime-shows and all, but I think it would be so interesting to read from the perspective of the son or daughter of a villain. The impact it has, the relationship between father and child. Does the child already know, or do they find out during the course of the story. It just seems like such an interesting and original story!
