Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week we’re talking about things we want to see more of in books! This was actually really hard for me because while I know I’ve said things like “Oh man, I wish there was a book about this!” my mind is honestly drawing a blank right now. Here goes nothing! The top 5 things I wish there were more of:
1. Villain MCs
Yes, we all love to read about main characters we relate to and love but what about the villains? The ones we hate BUT can be so complex and interesting? Dirty Red by Tarryn Fisher is what made me realize that it IS possible to love a book with a main character you hate! There should be more books like this because sometimes villains can be great to read!
2. Time Traveling in YA
I don’t know what it is about time travel but I love it! Two books that I adored with time travel is The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and Outlander by Diana Gabaldon — neither of which are YA. Let’s get more time travel in YA!
3. Sporty Romances
I love reading sporty stories and sporty romances! I have somewhat of a small obsession with football (GO SEAHAWKS! Had to do it. Sorrynotsorry) and I’d love to see more stories or romances centered around it!
4. Paranormal NA
New girl at college meets tortured guy on campus. Etc etc. Sometimes NA gets repetitive. Why does the new adult time period need to take place on a college campus? I’d love to see more paranormal NA!
5. Sister Themes
It’s no secret that I adored the movie Frozen (and may have listened to the soundtrack countless times) and it made me realize how much I loved the sister theme it had! Having a sister myself, I want to see more books that feature strong sisterly ties!
