Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
I am really hoping that you all are having an amazing week both in and out of the books. I am trying something new this week and going to do a Top 10 Tuesday, if this goes well I hope to keep it up. So please let me know what your thoughts are ….
This weeks topic is Settings I’d like to see more of (Or at all). For me I had to do some serious thinking on this one. I never really think about the settings of the book as being important, for me I usually just ask that the setting they use just be well developed. The more I thought about this though it got me thinking that maybe there are some settings I wish I saw more often. The ones that came to mind are listed below in no specific order.
- I have been reading a ton of newly released adult contemporary lately and maybe I just haven’t been picking up the right ones, but I feel like there isn’t much to offer for some very historical contemporary romance.
- Being from Canada I always get super excited when a location close to me is mentioned. However, we don’t have the quantity of popular authors in Canada that other countries produce. With this I am trying to say that I wish more popular books were set in the location of Canada.
- I have to say that I really love escaping my current life into a book, hence the name of my blog (Reading to Escape). It is very sad that when you read new popular romance or best selling books they are mostly set in a setting that is very much high class and out of reach for the majority of society. Wouldn’t it to be cool for once to read about something that was within your reach, like a setting of low to middle class that didn’t depress you and had a great happy ending.
- Being am a huge fan of dystopian and even though this is a genre, I myself also find it to be a setting in fact that it is a social environment. I kind of wish that the there was more of a dystopian setting.
- There is a portion of my life that I worked the midnight shift, while working I would spend a large portion of the shift reading. I am now thinking back and realizing that there is no books I can think of that are set over night. All the books I think I have read are all set during the day with people who work a 9 to 5 job if they work at all.
It is unfortunate that my first Top Ten Tuesday has a topic that I can not come up with 10 points; but I wracked my brain for far too long to come up with the settings I felt I was missing and I really did not want to lose my joy of blogging.
