Top (Ten) Five Things On My Reading Wishlist

toptentuesday-1Thank you The Broke and the Bookish for this wonderful Tuesday Meme

Well hello guys. I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in months. I feel a little rusty, but let’s tackle this! This week its all about the topics you wish authors would write about. Some of my answers may feel too broad, but bear with me.

1. Family

In YA, there are some really crappy family situations. In your honest opinion tell me which book comes to mind that has a good family dynamic, or even a so-so one? Any book? One comes to my mind, but apart from that one… I got nada.

2. Dystopian

You’re probably like, really Veronica… dystopian is the best you could come up with? Well… yes! When I think dystopian, I think Divergent, The Hunger Games, The Testing, Under the Never Sky. I want me some epic dystopian fighting for your life stories.


3. Friendship

I want a YA book where we not only get good romance, but good friendship. I don’t want the friendship to take backstage, I want it in the front.

4. College Life

When I say college life, I do not mean New Adult. When I say college life I mean, freshman year of college. So many good stories can come out of that time period, but for some reason… they don’t exist. I really want a book where we can approach college life as a way of discovering yourself, not where a guy swoops in and saves you. College is so not like that. Trust me. I’ve been there and done that.


5. Winter

We all know that there are a ton of stories set in the summer, but what about winter? I find it hard to find stories set in the winter time. Let It Snow is one of my favorite books because it is set in the winter. I love reading about snowy days (which as a California girl I have NEVER experienced), hot beverages, blankets, and coats. Really winter is a wonderful time for love stories. There is an excuse to cuddle up to someone without being obvious. Muahaha.


What are some topics you want to be reading about?

Tell me! I want to know!

  1. A huge YES to good family and friendships! Honestly, I don’t think I can name a book that has an excellent family dynamic. I might if I think really hard about it, but still, that’s pretty sad!

    Great list! 🙂

    1. The only book that came to my mind was The Book of Broken Hearts but even then.. still not the best example but omg a family is actually present in the book. I think that is why it stuck on me. An actual mom and dad present in the story and the dad has a big role in it.
      And it is sad. Really sad. Hopefully things change soon in the YA scene.

  2. Lots of great choices! I’d like to read more about functional families as well. Seems like almost all of them have horrible family relationships.

    I’m totally on board with more dystopian books as well. They’re my favorite!

  3. I guess The Garretts in My Life Next Door has a good family dynamic, and since Samantha pretty much lives there you get to see that, idk?
    Agree on the winter one. Winter is my favorite season, and not just because of christmas, but also because of the snooooow. I hadn’t thought about the whole “cuddling up to someone without being obvious” thing, sneaky. 🙂

  4. One of my biggest YA pet peeves is unnecessarily dysfunctional families/horrible parents! Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker comes to mind as an example of supportive families. There is a pretty good family dynamic in the books I am currently reading-Roomies by Sara Zarr and Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg. They rare and I love when I find them! ~Megan
