~Top Ten Tuesday~ Reading Wishlist

                Hello everyone!  Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers.  Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


The top ten today is:  Reading Wishlist


                Sarah J. Maas- Yeah so this isn’t specific but I just want more of both of these series because OMG I LOVE them so so much!  I’m still having withdrawls from ACOWAR (review) and it seems too long of a wait for more!

                Strong friendships- I love books with good friendships.  I especially like when the friendship seems real and genuine and there is proof of that being so other than just told it.  Ups and downs and not always agreeing but in the end the bond is there.

                Real parents- I want parents who aren’t just used as a plot device or to die tragically.  I want parents who make me think of real parents and are normal.  I know there are tons of different parenting types out there from overprotective or those who are just crappy but I want to read about some that seem…normal.

                Guy/Girl platonic friendships- I love the idea of friends who end up finding something more it’s sweet and cute.  Still as a girl with lots of guy friends growing up that were strictly platonic on both sides it was great and I think not seeing it makes people think it can’t happen.  This also doesn’t count if one part of the friendship is gay/lesbian. 

                                Side note to this one I’d also like the respective partners of the friends to not be super jealous of the friendship.  I don’t want the fact that they are opposite sex friends and close to be an issue.

                Travel stories- I don’t get to travel as much as my heart desires (until I win the lotto anyways) so reading about characters who get to travel to places I’d like to go is fun.  Even better when they seem to have a realistic budget and/or story to how they financed their trip!
               
                Nerd/Geek books- I love books where the characters are total nerds about certain things like I am.  It makes them relatable in a different way.  They can in no way be “nerdy” because they are good in school, like to read, or something like that but to really fangirl about “something” that they could talk about for hours with someone and be totally content

                 Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below.  Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!

  1. Guy/Girl platonic friendships, I totally agree with you here. And also I wonder where all the parents have gone, in so many YA novels one or both parents are out of the picture.

    1. I did laugh at myself as I wrote about parents as the story I'm working on myself has deceased parents...
