Hello darlings. It's Tuesday and as always it's time for Top Ten Tuesday. So this week the task is pretty interesting and it's about things that are on my reading wishlist aka things I'd love to see in YA. I don't think I'll find ten, but let's try.
1. YA set in Victorian time or if you want me to paraphrase it - Pride and Prejudice in YA. But not retelling of P&P. I'm complicated as that. Basically I'd love too see teens in that period and their views. I guess there are books like this around but I have never got to read any.
2. Villains with well developed ideas. Basically if you have seen Thor or Avengers then it's Loki. I love his character and the deepness he has. It's so easy to believe him so I guess that's why he has an army (that and Tom Hiddleston - off topic)
3. Parents kicking-asses side by side with their kids. Now that would be amazing. Usually it's only teens, but why not include parents.
4. Sad and shocking stories about tough issues (depression, anxiety, etc) but with realistic and sad endings. I mean it's all nice and lovely but this kind shocks more than anything. I've read one or two of these but I'd love to see more (I'm kinda of cheating).
5. Strong characters who know how to let go off persons who hurt them. But without going back to them, but truly letting go.
6. Relationship is not everything in life. I do love nice romance and it's okay, but not to be center of your universe and universe itself.
7. YA book set on desert island. I have no idea why (I guess it's due to Lord of the Flies). Basically their transformation and adaptation.
8. Trafficking. I did read few books about this but characters are mostly older, when in reality teens disappear everyday.
9. Serial-killers. I can already picture a teen who is a serial-killer and being psychopath and crazy (I blame it on Criminal Minds).
10. I shall say something nice at the end, or you'll think I have twisted mind. So friendship or the bond between two characters which is bigger than any family tie.
Oh I made it to ten. I didn't know I'd do it. Anyhow I'd love to your ideas. Feel free to link them in comments below.
Until the next time,
