Top Ten: Take me there!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by those rad chicks over at The Broke and The Bookish.

This week they ask: Top Ten Settings I’d Like to See More Of (Or At All)

Okay, how about this. I’ll say 5 settings I need to READ more of and then 5 settings I’d LIKE to see more of in general. Deal? Sweet.

5 Settings I’d Like To See More Of:
1. HOGWARTS. Not castles. Not magical boarding schools. Hogwarts specifically. You know you do too so don’t judge me.
2. Road Trips. Books on the road are so cool. Mainly because there’s lots of time for discussion and playlists and other such things.
3. 24 hour time frame. I adored Statistical Probability because it almost felt like I was experiencing it in real time. Also I adored it because it was fantastic.
4. Slumber parties. Because even as an adult, slumber parties are one of my favorite things about life.
5. Dinosaurs. SURELY there’s a way for a YA author to write an awesome story involving dinos...yes? Right? PLEASE?

5 Settings I Need To Read More Of:
1. Beach Reads. Oh Jennifer Echols. If you’ve taught me anything, it’s that teen drama and sexytimes are at their peak at the beach. I like that a LOT.
2. Historical Fiction. I love history and I love fiction so why I don’t read historical fiction is really beyond me.
3. The Wilderness. I dig the dystopian genre a whole heckuva lot and I like it a lot more when they are on the run in the wild (such as Eve).
4. Music Centered. I love love lovvvvveeeddd Audrey, Wait! so I definitely need to get back on the music-as-the-focus bandwagon again.
5. Futuristic. I’m a nerd and I like sci-fi books set in the future. I need to keep in tune with my bookish loves, you know?

What about you? Do you have any recommendations for what settings I need to read more of? Or suggestions on where I can find more settings I want to see more of? Let me know!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  6. I have the wilderness on my list, too! I totally didn't think anyone else was going to have that. I have Eve on my nook but haven't read it yet. I'm going to have to check that one out!

  7. Yes! Future books (more specifically, awesome time travel books). Let's do this, authors! Oh man, and you just stole my heart with dinos. I luuuuuurv me some dinos. Oh! ADD great idea --- how about dinos IN THE FUTURE?! This needs to happen.

  8. Yeah, I could go for a Hogwarts book. I don't even care if they're bad. Just... Hogwarts. Yes. And dinosaurs? Uh... that would be the most epic thing ever. Seriously, this needs to happen.

  9. LOL. I almost listed Hogwarts too. But then I thought the only person that can write Hogwarts is JK Rowling, and I kind of like that HP is finished. Since it's limited, it makes it more special. That said, if she wrote any more Hogwarts, I would be all over that :)

  12. I am all for more road trip and beachy reads - they're two of my fave settings!

    And, I like the new blog design, Lisa!

  13. HOGWARTS!! Yes, all the way. Everyone needs to pressure J.K. Rowling like crazy to just write more more more books set in the Harry Potter world.

    Ermehgerd dinosaurs are pretty much the best thing ever. Seriously. There should be a book like How To Train Your Dinosaur (instead of Dragon...best movie ever). Awesome list! My TTT

  14. Dinosaur books? That would be awesome! :D

  15. If Doctor Who can make Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (I'm fairly certain that was the actual title of the episode) cool then certainly there could be an awesome YA book.

    As long as it doesn't become a trend. I can't even imagine what it would be like if the market was suddenly flooded with dinosaur books...

    ReplyDelete
  16. YES to all of these! Especially Hogworts! Dinos in YA would be pretty awesome. Someone needs to make that happen.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm with you on historical fiction and dinosaurs. Better yet historical fiction with dinosaurs. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. YAYYYY HOGWARTS!!! Totally agree on road trips - they make for such interesting reading! I hadn't thought of the 24 hour time frame thing, but I love that one! Good idea :) Hahaha yessss slumber parties!

    You should totally read more historical fiction! It's my favorite genre lady!

  19. Ahhhhh!!! Hogwarts! YES! I would give my first born child if Rowling would write a 7 books series about the Marauders.

    And I think you're on to something with the 24 hour time frame thing. Especially in our current tech-driven world, so much could possibly happen in 24 hours... Hmmm. The possibilities!

    And Dinosaurs!!! I totally geeked out at age.. like.. 22 when I went to the NYC Museum of Natural History and saw the dino bones for the first time. So freaking awesome. We need some YA dinosaurs ASAP

    Great list!
