Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Things On Our Reading Wishlist.”
This was a team effort this week! We would like….
Intricate magical systems that makes sense – Think: Trudi Canavan.
Strong, but realistic, female characters. – Think: Tris in The Witcher Series or Eowyn in The Lord of the Rings series.
Less love triangles with predictable endings – Think: Less like Mortal Instruments or Twilight.
Books with multiple points of view – Think: Falling Kingdom’s series by Morgan Rhodes or You’re the One that I Want by Giovanna Fletcher.
Legitimately threatening villains. Ones that will actually do stuff rather than explain and do things slowly. Think: The Falconer in Lies of Loche Lamora by Scott Lynch.
Better second books. They usually end up slipping as they are building up to the final book. Think: Less like The Painted Man by Peter V Brett more like Michael J Sullivan.
More Pat Rothfuss – like, now please.
