A weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
This weeks topic is settings I want to see more of in books!
10. Under the Sea
That’s right… I want more mermaid books! I’ve only ever read Of Poseidon, but it was fabulous and made me crave some more mermaid action!
9. Homeschool stories
We Homeschoolers are completely underrated! People assume our lives are boring, but I’ve been to 14 different countries, and have to deal with a bunch of crazy drama everyday. Plus I’m just getting sick of high school contemporary drama.
8. Enchanted Forests
I haven’t read a good story taking place in an enchanted forest in an extremely long time, and that’s disappointing because there’s so much potential there!
7. Dystopian society where citizens AREN’T brainwashed!
I feel like I’ve been surrounded by an overabundance of brainwashed societies as of late. I don’t mind evil dictators spreading lies around, but when you’re implanting technology into someone’s brain so that it no longer functions, you need some originality!
As I said above, I’ve been to 14 different countries, and 10 of those were in Europe. And there’s nothing I love more than having a character visit a city I’ve been to!
5. The near future
We’ve seen TONS of stuff that takes place a thousand years from now, but not much that takes place maybe one hundred years into the future, which is kind of surprising because looking at how fast our society has evolved in just the past 30 years, I can’t even begin to imagine the advances that could be made in the next few years!
4. American Historical Fiction
I think historical fiction has been catching on a lot recently, but I’d like to see more that takes place in America, since there’s so much amazing history here!
3. Travel to a Magical Land
This theme seems to be more popular in Middle Grade, but I’d love to see it more in YA. I love experiencing a new world for the first time along with the main character.
I love castles so much! I don’t really care about the outside world as long as there’s a castle! So many beautiful descriptions that usually hide deep, dark secrets (:
1. Futuristic Fairy Tales
This is kind of a weird one, but I’d love to see more! Cinder is a prime example of a futuristic fairy tale, and with it’s success I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few more of these futuristic fairy tales popping up!
