Top Ten Tuesday: Reading Wish-list

Today I'm linking with: The Broke and the Bookish

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.)

1. A sequel to Allison's Pittman's Sister Wife series. I mean seriously who ever heard of a two book series. This story needs an end that will finally end this great series. I think a little birdie told me she did not make enough sales that the publishers did not deem it profitable to make another:( Really guys go and read the series!!!!!

2. No more Insta-love. I do not believe in love at first sight. How can you possibly love anyone from just a glance. You do not know his morals, values, personality how can you make such a decision to actually marry them!

3. Where the guy doesn't get the girl. This would be EPIC!

4. After the 'happily ever after'. After the guy gets the girl we never know what happens after. What challenges do they face as a new couple...?

5. No more obvious couples. I have literally opened a book and after reading a few pages will already know who marries whom. I would love for it to be a bit less obvious. Bodie Thoene has done a great job at that, but she is the exception:) 

6. Characters with real-life flaws and where they get addressed. So many authors make a perfect characters that does not relate to us. Sarah Sundin's Wings of Glory series was a great example of this!

7. No more perfect looking girls. Really! Everyone has perfect curls, shiny hair, a color eye that is indescribable, musical laugh etc, come on authors! Make average main characters, please!!!! Where their curly hair actually gets frizzy...

8. No Romance. What about that for a change. Some books not romance geared throw in one just for the sake, you really don't have to.

9. A trilogy with the same person. This way the author can really develop the character, where we can see growth, and a true romance that doesn't happen in a mere books length of time.

10. A YA in a Historical setting. Now how cool would that be!!!!


  1. Ooh! I love this list!!! I'm so tired of the obvious plots; something unexpected or real (for a change) would be SO welcome in my reading. This looks like a fun link up!

  2. No more perfect looking girls! I totally agree. Its really annoying when an author writes their character with imperfections and when its turned into a film, they are instantly gorgeous. I agree with every single point on this list.


  3. Wow, your list is so awesome! I agree; I am sick of all the old obvious stuff all the time! I'm with ya on the No more obvious couples thing; it's so annoying when you already know the outcome of the book almost as soon as you open it.
