I feel like I have been talking about the kind of stuff I want to see in books a lot lately, so I’ve mixed it up this week and gone with bookish things that I want in my life as well as things I want to see in books. Because diversity is good.
1. The rest of Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld books
Lauren made me and Tatum read this series because it’s one of her all time favourites. I’ve read the first two books, and I own the first five, so I definitely need to get a move on and buy the rest so I can marathon them whenever I please. Or, rather, whenever my reading schedule allows.
2. LGBT+ main characters
3. Time travel
ALL THE TIME TRAVEL. Is it too much to ask for?
4. The new Harry Potter paperbacks
Because they are my favourite covers so far.
5. A reading chair
Also a bigger bedroom so I can fit a reading chair into it.
6. Less romance, more individuality
7. Physical copies of Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series, books 5 to 7
After the first four I started buying these on my Kindle because I couldn’t wait for them to be delivered. I need to complete my collection!
8. More POC main characters
9. Mafia/Crime families
10. A wall-mounted bookcase
11. Alternate history novels
I’m currently writing one (well, I was, but then a full time job happened to me), and I would L-O-V-E to see more of them. Whether the historical setting is just a backdrop for the main storyline, or a full on “What if Hitler had been assassinated” story, I WANT THEM ALL.
12. Ancient Rome
Because really. Who am I.
