Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist
All the books. All the books are on my reading wishlist. Well...I'm a little over "dead siblings," but as long as there isn't a talking animal I'm game.
Here are 10 things I definitely want to see more of:
1) Space - Legit space. With spaceships and space battles and cool planets at the edge of the cosmos.
2) Morgan Matson - I'm getting a new Sarah Dessen book this summer, but it would be so nice to also be getting a new Morgan Matson.
3) Quirky circuses - Preferably of the "Night Circus" variety, but I'm flexible.
4) Road trips with music playlists - Again with the Morgan Matson, but I LOVED that addition to Amy & Roger's Epic Detour
5) Aliens - As far as I'm concerned there aren't enough aliens in teen fiction
6) Secret societies in Prague - I love the historical hunt for information while characters are being chased by shifty, violent evil people. Yes. I know how that sounds. But I'd love to see more like Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian or Robin Wasserman's The Book of Blood and Shadow.
7) Steampunk - Don't you think world just needs a little more steampunk? Adventure in airships, cool weaponry, characters with manners. Yep. Steampunk.
8) The 1920s - Flappers, prohibition, jazz music, and a mystery around every corner.
9) Countdowns - I haven't read a good countdown book since Michael Crichton's Timeline. The countdown increases the tension and usually makes me a nervous wreck.
10) The Darkling - Or maybe just more villains like Leigh Bardugo's Darkling. Suave, charming, and deadly. You can't help but love them just a little bit (even though they would totally kill you at the first chance)
