Top 10 Things on My Reading Wish List
This week's Top Ten Things On My Reading Wish List (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.)
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.
Rachel would like to see more books with:
1.) Interracial relationships/issues.
2.) YA fiction about teen bullying (from a popular person's or the bully's perspective),
3.) Books from a woman's perspective set in Egypt, Rome or Greece during their height of civilization.
4.) Retelling of biblical stories in a different time period.
5.) Inspiring YA fiction that motives teenagers and adults to do more and be better people in general.
I took a little different approach to what I would like to see more books with:
1.) It doesn't matter, write what you love to write about. If you are passionate about the story, it will come through to your readers.
2.) Be inspired. Listen to the voices in your head or your dreams, heck maybe even your nightmares. See the opportunity and the story that surrounds you. Everyone has a muse we just need to notice.
3.) Make mistakes. Mistakes are a part of life, you just need to learn from them.
4.) If you haven't started and you want to, just do it. Everyone has to start somewhere! Start blogging, poetry, children's books, articles, anything!
5.) Take your time. I would rather wait for the story to come together perfectly, then have the story forced.
What made your list?
