Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
1. The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring by George R.R. Martin
Sash: Yes, I know – George R.R. Martin is not my bitch. And I’m not saying that he’s letting me down – I just REALLY enjoy this series and I want more! There was a 5 year gap between book 4 and book 5 and it has been 2.5 years since book 5. Another example of series where I get spoiled by having more than one book already published. Maybe I should start waiting until the series are completed before starting?
Em: I like the TV show! (HA!)
2. A YA book set in the 1950’s.
Has anyone come across one of these yet? The 50’s are a favorite of ours and we’d love to read a book set in this time! The descriptions of the fashion alone is enough to make us excited!
3. More books about techie girls.
We think Michelle Gagnon’s Don’t Turn Around is a great example. But we want more!
Stanford has a great student group called Girls Teaching Girls To Code, where Stanford women in Computer Science teach local high school girls to code! And there’s this beauty on YouTube as well (women in engineering FTW!):
Princes and Princesses. Can you guys help us out some? We’d love to read about this! We’re thinking YA a la Roman Holiday.
5. Epic series
Trilogies seem to have been the popular thing in the last few years, but we’d really love a 6-9 book series. We’re thinking Narnia or Harry Potter length. Spanning the arc over a 6+ book series really give us depth and insight into the world – complete immersion is key!
