I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Things On Our Reading Wishlist



Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week will be a different Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join and link up.

This week is: Ten Things On Our Reading List. Things I want to see more of in books.



1.      Non-heterosexual Main Characters: I don’t want there to be some big deal about it either. I want it to a normal thing. And I don’t want the book to sectioned off in a little corner labeled “LGBT Section” like it’s something to be ashamed of.

2.     Diversity: I want to read about all kinds of characters, that come in all shapes, sizes, families, backgrounds, religions, and color. And I don’t want these characters to check off some stereotypical box.

3.      Strippers: What can I say, I apparently have a thing for strippers that I didn’t know about. I feel like strippers get a bad rap.

4.     Gargoyles: I didn’t know I needed gargoyles in life until I read ‘White Hot Kiss’ by Jennifer L. Armentrout. If you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for?

5.     Demons: They are another group that gets a bad rap. And I’m not talking about scary, fire breathing, climbing out of Hell type demons, though fire-breathing is pretty cool. Demons are people too, they need love.

6.     Women with Swords: What’s cooler than a badass woman wielding a sword? Nothing. 

7.      Supernatural Boarding Schools: I know there are books out there that fit this bill, but what can I say I want more.

8.     Secret Societies: After reading ‘Secret Society Girl’ by Diana Peterfreund, I realized this was something that I really enjoyed and something I didn’t read about a lot.

9.     Grim Reapers: Give me more books about some living person seeing ghost and helping the dead travel to the afterlife. Why not

10.   Real Couples: What I mean by this is couples who are more than just romantically together. I want to see couples who understand and except each other down to their most basic level. (I hope that make sense. Sometimes I don’t make sense a lot.)

  1. I totally get what you mean with the 10th wish! I hope real couples begin to pop up more.

  2. What a great list of wishes! I love strippers and gargoyles, lol! What could better than that... seriously though I love your real couples the best... It wasn't as hard to get my own 10 wishes as I initially thought it would be!

  3. "What’s cooler than a badass woman wielding a sword?" A badass woman with a bow and arrow, tbh. But I totally get what you mean. Warrior women = the best!

  4. I love this list! I would love to read more books about Gargoyles and demons too!
    Did you check the book The Valiant by Leslie Levingston? that is a bout a girl gladiator.

  5. The two topics I most related to were supernatural boarding schools and real couples. Neither of them made it onto my list, but then again, we learn so much about ourselves through TTT!

  6. #7 sounds awesome - I don't think I've read anything like that outside of Harry Potter. And definitely #10. It takes more than passion and attraction to hold a relationship together.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!
