Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
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.)
Characters who are not willowy blondes or brunettes. I don't mean to offend anyone but I would love to see more diverse characters. Give us short girls, tall girls, skinny girls and plus size girls. I think some of my greatest heroes have been characters in books but they only ever fit one image. Also I would love to see more multiracial, Asian, African etc characters. This goes for more male characters breaking the traditional body builder blonde/brunette stereotype as well. Give us men with beards, a bit of a tummy, ANYTHING just make 'em different.
I would love to read more books set in Africa. I love the continent and will read pretty much any genre as long as it's set there.
More YA books set in Canada. I live in Canada and would love to see more YA set in this great country of mine. We have a few amazing writers who set their books here but I would love to see more. Most Canadian writers that I know of only write novels or mysteries.
More historical fiction set in Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and South America. I love historical fiction and would love to see more taking place in these locations.
I absolutely adore prehistoric fiction Ex. The Clan of The Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel. I think it's a fascinating topic and would love to see more of it. In fact I do see more of it now than a couple of years ago but I'm greedy and wish more authors wrote books in this genre.
Books that deal with the Celts. Ever since I first discovered King Arthur I've been obsessed with the Celts and would like to see more fiction about them.
Another thing that I'm seeing a few more authors write about but ever since I saw the tv show Gargoyles that was popular back in the late 90's I've loved them.
More Interracial couples.
Come on authors! It's 2014 and I would love to see more interracial couples that reflect relationships in the real world.
More fantasy romance with elves. Hello have y'all seen Legolas? We need romance with hero's like him. 'Nuff said.
More historical fiction with female warriors.
