This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and Bookish) theme is centered around the idea of a reading wish list. I supposed we all have them, but I’ve been finding it a little challenging to put my wish list to words. Maybe I just want too much?! haha
Lighthearted steampunk. I think I just want more people to write books like Gail Carriger’s Finishing School series.
Historical fiction/romance set in Colonial America. I want to read more about life in the colonies (before the war) and I want some kissing mixed in!
First Ladies as Teens. Haha This sounds really lame but I’d be interested in a YA or MG series that fictionalizes the teen years of some of the early first ladies. Maybe this would end up being too much like the American Girl books, but I think it’d be fun!
Jane Austen retellings. More creative YA or MG retellings of Jane Austen’s novels please!
Fairy Tale retellings. I know they’re all out there, but as Ariel said, “I want more!”
Short stories about the previous tributes in The Hunger Games. Wouldn’t that be a cool short story collection? Little snapshots into the lives of some of the previous tributes? Very cool.
Upstairs/downstairs plots. One of the most interesting things about shows like Downton Abbey is the relationship between the people upstairs with those who work downstairs. I’d love to see all the intricacies of these two groups living their lives under the same roof written well.
So, I can only think of nine things I’d want on my reading wish list. Seriously, I’ve been staring at the screen and thinking about this for over twenty minutes. If I can’t think of a tenth after twenty minutes it is time to stop!
What is on your Reading Wish List? I’m very interested to see what everyone else has on their lists, so please go ahead and share in the comments below!
