Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist


This Tuesday The Broke and the Bookish asked bloggers to list the top ten things on our reading wish lists. It could be a specific type of character, an issue tackled, a time period, a certain type of plot, etc. After wracking my brain here’s what I came up with.

1. More contemporary young adult books with a light fantasy element introduced.

2. Historical fantasy novels. Would especially love to see something magical or mystical set in Tudor England or Imperial Russia.

3. Modern retellings of Victorian novels.

4. YA novels told through the POV of multiple female characters.

5. Novels that feature sleep or dreaming in an interesting or unexpected way (something in the vein of Dream Hunters, by Elizabeth Knox or Insomnia, by J. R. Johanson).

6. Speaking of dreams I think would be really cool to read a book where the main character was a DREAMer immigrant to the United States.

7. Young adult adaptations of Hemingway or Fitzgerald novels. Can you imagine a teenage Gatsby or Brett Ashley as a cheerleader?

8. A new Alice Munro short story collection. Even though she’s announced her retirement, I can’t accept that it’s over.

9. I always enjoy books about sisters, so more of those are always welcome in my TBR list.

10. Another favorite category for me, is books that feature reading or characters who love to read and write. I would love to find myself reading a few more of those this year.

Let me know in the comments what you are looking for on your reading wishlist. Also, if you have any suggestions for me based on my list I would LOVE you to share them with me.

  1. I have some suggestions for you! 😀
    2. The Grisha books by Leigh Bardugo. They are set in a kind of alternate universe Russia and are uber fantastical and seriously just downright amazing.
    3. I haven’t read them, but Jane and Catherine by April Lindner are modern retellings of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.
    4. Again, haven’t read this book, but it’s about three girl, so it may be written from each of their perspectives! The Originals by Cat Patrick.
    5. Wake by Lisa McMann.
    I hope you like some of these recs! 😀

  2. Sisters is a great idea! I love my sister. She isy best friend and I would totally relate to something like that it would be very enjoyable!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  3. As for books about sleeping/dreaming have you read Fade and Wake by Lisa McMann (YA)? You might also read The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint and Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink.
