Today I am joining the May blog chain that Teens Can Write Too! hosts
once in every ten years monthly. ;) The awesome prompt is below.
Prompt: "What kinds of published books would you like to see more of?"
I almost forgot to post today. I swear. Phew. I mean the only reason I remembered is that I had signed up for comment updates on the TCWT post. So. Yeah. Sorry for almost forgetting :D
Books with Asian or Half-Asian main characters.
I haven't read all that many books with Asian or Half-Asian main characters and even when I asked other people for suggestions, I only added six or so books to my TBR list. I love reading about them because I'm half-Chinese, half-American and it's fun finding similarities in culture or family life.
Books with complicated clues that lead to discovering something (that's not a murder).
Let me explain. This probably sounds like I'm describing a really good (common type of) mystery novel or something, but I'm not. I'm talking about books like the first two in the National Treasure series. Major and serious with a trail of complicated clues that seem to make no sense leading to an amazing finale. Like Encyclopedia Brown for YA fiction. I think it would be awesome!
Indie books with beautiful, well-made covers.
I don't know if this counts exactly for the prompt, but I would like to see self-published books have more professional, better designed covers. Because you can almost always tell if a book was not published by a regular publishing company and that stinks.
Books without love triangles, or at least, maybe change it up a little and have two girls falling for one guy.
I am not a fan of love triangles. I don't like them at all, and I usually end up disliking the girl for leading one of the guys on. I'm sure there are some instances in great big universe where one girl can meet one guy and they fall in love.
Sci-Fi with cyborgs, robots, etc.
More sci-fi YA fiction with all things robotic! I read Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer last year and I really enjoyed them. I love reading books that explore the concept of robots or non-human humans (if that makes sense) becoming like humans with all their rights and abilities to develop emotion, etc.
That's all from me! Go check out the other stops on the blog chain (which are probably much more deep and creative than my post to be honest) and have fun. :)
