Top Ten Tuesday: Genres on my Wishlist


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's topic is ten things on my reading wishlist. I''m going to actually go with genres I need to read more from.

  1. Historic - I always love a good historical fiction, but I rarely ever pick one up.
  2. Crime - This is a fairly recent development... I read a Stephen King and J.K. Rowling's Cuckoo's Calling and couldn't put them down.
  3. Biographies - I just have so many on my TBR that I need to get around to reading. I do take longer to read them than most books though as I like to take my time with them. Currently working my way through David Attenborough's Life on Air at the moment.
  4. Christmas (not technically a genre...) - I love a nice book with a Christmas-y feel. They just make me feel all fuzzy inside.
  5. Classics - I just need to read more of them. Full stop.
  6. High Fantasy - Especially Game of Thrones. I just need to find the time for these... they're just so big!
  7. Horror - I just want to read more Stephen King. I also started the Dexter series and loved it.
  8. Non-fiction -Like Biographies I have a few on my TBR, such as Brian Cox's Human Universe, that I really do need to get around to. Likewise, I will need to take my time with them.
  9. Supernatural - I've read a lot of fantasy, but have never really branched out into Supernatural and I actually own a few series, I think.
  10. Plays - I want to read more Shakespeare. This one does sort of link into Classics.

  1. I need more high fantasy too, I haven't been finding much lately? I like historical fiction sometimes too, and I actually wouldn't mind reading more Christmas stuff. I've read a few Christmas- themed mysteries and they were fun.

    1. I find it just so hard to find the time to read High Fantasy. I've never read a Christmas-themed mystery before, but they sound like they could be pretty good. I'll need to have a look for some!

  2. Ah, the classics! I once wanted to read the top classics at least, but I haven't gotten that much further since then... And high fantasy! Definitely agree. I have the Game of Thrones books all on my shelf, but I haven't read any of them... :)

    1. I'm wanting to read all the big classics too. I'm slowly getting through them, but they do take some time to read. I've been attempting Anna Karenina since November! I have all the Game of Thrones books too, but haven't got around to reading them either.

  3. I would love more good horror novels so much! I love them, but there aren't very many that are truly scary. Great list!

    Here are my Top Ten!

    1. Yeah, I can definitely see how it might be a hit or a miss with some horror novels. Some are a bit tame.

  6. There are some retellings of Shakespeare plays that are being released slowly. Have you read any of them? It started with Anne Tyler's Vinegar Girl which is a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew

    1. I don't think I have actually! Unless I just wasn't aware of reading them at the time. I think I'd want to read the originals before attempting any retellings too, just to see the differences.

  7. So, most of my favourite genres are on your list! I typically read nonfiction, historical fiction, mysteries and high fantasy. 😄
