Top Ten Things On Our Reading Wishlist

  1. Jane Eyre retellings. Because it’s my all-time favorite book and I think there should be more retellings of it.
  2. Young Adult books set in the 1980s. I’ve been rewatching The Carrie Diaries on Netflix, and I just love this series from the characters to the clothing to the music (and everything that screams 1980s!)
  3. Books about bookish people. I love reading about characters that are in love with books as much as I am. BOOK LOVE should definitely be promoted more. 
  4. Books set in Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky. The Cincinnati tri-state is my home, and I would love to see more books take place in this setting.
  5. Young Adult characters starting college. College is a huge life transition for young adults and I hate that it’s rarely written about in the young adult genre.
  6. More books written by Erin Morgenstern. I adored The Night Circus and I’ve been patiently waiting for more words and worlds to be written by Morgenstern for a very long time! 
  7. More enemies to lovers/friends. I don’t know what it is about this trope, but I always want to read more of it. 
  8. More Young Adult magical realism books. In the last few years, magical realism has been my favorite genre to read, and I wouldn’t mind seeing more of this genre pop up throughout the next few years. 
  9. Victorian Period romances. The Victorian period is my favorite era to study and read, so of course I want more swoony books to take place in this setting.
  10. More standalones or duologies. I like trilogies, but sometimes when a series is 4, 5, or even 8 books long…it’s just ridiculous.

  1. Be still my heart! The 80s are amongst one of my favorite time periods. I was a teen then, so I didn’t enjoy it as much when I was actually living it, but looking back, there was tons to adore. The fashion was somewhat unfortunate and my hair *shudder*, but the music was incredible and a lot of huge things happened during that time period.

  2. Victorian eras? YES! I’d like that – but I’m also a 1920s fan. 🙂 Books about bookish people (or bloggers!) is 100% a must! Authors, take note. Fun list!

  3. Hi! Well, I can’t help but suggest a book full of the 80s and with a character from Cincinnati!…Chasing Eveline (my book). Sorry, I just couldn’t resist lol it just fit too well. Books with bookish characters- have you read the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde? Not YA, but it’s like a literary Nancy Drew. So cool. Great list this week. 🙂

  4. I’d like more YA 80’s books too, I haven’t seen the Carrie Diaries but after seeing Stranger things recently I’d like more of that era. Books about college and bookish people are also good ones. Nice list!
