Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
I loved this weeks topic! I have a ton of things I’m always on the lookout for and I wish that there could be more of them. If you know of any books that fit into these topics please let me know (because of course I need more books on my TBR :P)!
1. Boarding Schools
I’m sure this will forever be on every list I write! I love boarding school books. Paranormal, Contemporary, Historical Fiction… I don’t discriminate, I’ll take any genre. As long as it’s set in a boarding school I’m completely content.
2. Paranormal Historical Fiction
I’ve only just slightly rekindled my love for historical fiction. I used to read plenty of adult historical fiction but I got bored with it. I’m slowly coming back to it but my new-found loves are with a paranormal twist! There is something about this additional element that really sucks me in!
Come on authors! I need more witches! We see a ton of vampires and other paranormals but where are all my witches?! I feel like they are often pushed aside or maybe again, I’m just greedy and want more 😛
4. Thrillers that I can’t get the twist
I often guess the ending of thrillers. It’s sad and depressing when I get to an ending that everyone said, “OH MY GOD THE TWIST”, and I’ve already guessed it. I was ecstatic to read Dangerous Girls, and then knew what was happening half way through… so sad. I love thrillers but knowing the ending in advance kind of ruins it a bit for me 😛
5. Winter settings/Ski resorts
I love the cold weather, I love snowboarding, ski resorts… snow… snow storms. I wish there were MORE books that had this type of setting. I love books where people are stranded in the middle of a blizzard in a cottage and they fall back in love… families going to ski resorts… I just love it all. I want more 🙂
6. Dystopians that mix it up
I am so sick of dystopians. I really read a lot of them, and got a bit of a burn out but the one thing I noticed is that a lot of them are the same. I recently read Pawn, and that was unique from others I read and I really enjoyed it. I do love that topic, but I’d like to see some mix up and fresh world building!
I know I only picked six, but that’s all that I could come up with! I’m generally satisfied with the books that are out there but if I had my choice, these are some things I would change/want more of!
What are your picks this week? Do you have any recommendations for me that fit into these topics??! Link up!!
