Top ten Things On Our Reading Wishlist

Posted May 9, 2017 by Michelle in Top Ten / 9 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They love to share lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Top Ten Things On Our Reading Wishlist

Today’s topic: 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.) <—I posted this because I was confused by the topic and just incase you are too. This is what it means. 🙂

  • Villain Backstories ~ I just read a before she was a villain about Ursula, I thought it was so interesting, I would love to read more about a villains before they become villains story. I would love it to be any Villain not just fairytale. I think it would be very interesting.
  • Obscure Fairytale Retelling – I want outside the box retellings. Like Puss n Boots or The Frog Prince. Something totally different and not often done even maybe different culture fairytales. Just DIFFERENT!
  • B Movie Horror Teen Slash Film Books ~ Yup, I want more Teens on an island and a crazy killer type of books or Teens go to a house and one of them is a slasher. Like those old B Horror Movies that I love so much, I want to read stuff like that.
  • 1950 to 1990 ~ I would love to see romance books set in this era, dating was different we always see historical or now but I want to see the in between.
  • MG Video Game books ~ Like the escape the room type of books for MG. With puzzles for the characters to solve and fun villains to escape from. I even like something were the kids maybe jump into video games and spend some time with the characters in the game (I might have to write a book, I love that idea)
  • Strong Woman Characters ~ Like I really want them to be super independent but not assholes. I like girls who just know what they want and don’t need help getting it. No woman that are unsure of themselves. Strong REAL females not robots, aliens or fairies…REAL WOMAN!
  • Funny Crazy Characters ~ This is hard to explain but it’s in my head. Like Dr Doofenshmirtz type of bad guy and a really funny hero. Just something that make you belly laugh.
  • Ghost Stories ~ I want stories that are made up but with Ghosts, I can’t seem to find a good haunted house book or something that would make me keep the lights on. Preferably YA or a little older. Nothing with kids.
  • Pirates ~ I know they have a lot of pirate books but I feel like I need more 😉
  • Books set in the future that aren’t Dystopian ~ Can’t we be a bit hopeful for a brighter future!!!

What’s on your Reading Wishlist?

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. Future/ not dystopian is a good one, and I agree on pirates. 🙂 Also more slasher stuff lol and I like the 50’s-90’s thing too- we NEVER seem to see those timeframes. I want some YA version of Dazed and Confused lol.

  2. I’d love to hear retellings of non-European fairy tales, I bet there are some really amazing stories out there that we’ve just never heard of!

    And of course, more strong ladies are always needed!

    I do love a good villain back story it always makes them feel more substantial. I love me some retellings but I see what you mean instead of a story everyone knows and there are tons of retellings of stories that are less known could be cool and have even more options since they wouldn’t be doing something that’s been covered before! Pirates are always cool! Great list!

  4. Great list! I actually have read a retelling of the frog prince. I am not a big retelling reader, but I do love seeing less common retellings. I am still hoping for a Mulan retelling. I also would like to see more historicals during the more recent historical times. So much interesting stuff happened the last 100 years and I would be interested to read more books set during that time. I like your idea of stories that are set in the future, but not dystopian. Although ofcourse you have sci-fi books then, but I figured you meant not that far in the future.

    • Yes, not that far in the future. Maybe like 30 years or a little more. Just something that makes what is to come not so dark and dismal. Lol

      I read a retelling of the pied piper, I love the classics but I want obscure. More romance needs to be set in the 40, 50 and 60. Love to see the 80s and 90s too. Just great years!!!
