Here are my answers (in no particular order) to this week’s question

1. Beauty related cozies – I love my cozies and my dream is to go to school for cosmetology so I’d love to see more beauty themes in this genre.

2. Extreme sports romances – I’ve only read one series and that was Tracy Wolff’s Extreme Series. I’d love to see more along these lines than the typical football and hockey romances, although I do love those too.

3. Holiday books – I love a good holiday story and I’d love to find more of those. I’d also like them to be more than just Christmas stories. I’d like to see stories revolving around Halloween, Easter, etc.

4. Best friend books – I love a good book that tells the story of two best friends. I’d particularly like to see more of this in YA and NA instead of the usual romance stuff. While romance wouldn’t bother me, I’d like to see more of the story revolving around the friendship than the romance.

5. Flashback books – I really didn’t know what to call this but I’d love to see books set in like the 80s and 90s when I grew up. No cellphones or computers, take us back to passing notes in class, having to use a landline, etc. I think it would bee cool to read books about growing up during this time period.

6. Bad girl and Good guy – While I do love me a bad boy, I’d like to see the roles reversed. Bad girl falls for good guy and vice versa.

7. Female detective – I love a good mystery, thriller, romantic suspense etc. but it seems the detective is always male. I’d love to see more female cops, detectives, agents, etc.

8. Forensic career – Lisa Black writes the Theresa MacLean series in which the lead is a forensic scientist. I’ve always been fascinated with this field and even wanted to be just like the people on CSI when I grew up. I’d love to see more books along this line, bonus points if it’s a female lead.

9. Female rock stars – There’s tons of rock star books out there but not many with a female lead. I’d like to see more of those.

10. Mental health – As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, I’d like to see more books that incorporate this issue. One of my favorite books has been Dancing on Broken Glass by Ka Hancock in which the male lead suffers from bipolar disorder.

I thought I was going to fly right through this list but it was a lot harder once I sat down to do it. Do you share any of my wishes? What are yours?

I’ve never joined is this weekly meme either but I thought I would give it a try.

Here are my answers (in no particular order) to this week’s question

1. Cheating – I absolutely loathe it. There’s just no excuse for it.

2. Animal Harming – I will burn your house down if you even think of harming an animal. Period.

3. Zombies – They creep me out and I have no interest. The only zombie book I’ve read and enjoyed was Alice in Zombieland but the author did a different take on the usual and it was actually interesting. Otherwise, CREEPY!

4. Time Travel – I’d feel like I was on some type of high and wouldn’t be able to understand.

5. M/M, F/F, etc. – Anything involving something other than one M/F is just a turn off for. I don’t like to share and it’s just not my cup of tea.

6. Historical – The only time I will RARELY make an exception for this is if it’s a western. Otherwise, they’re not for me.

7. Sci-Fi – Again, not my thing. I’ve tried and they just don’t hold my interest. I usually end up confused.

8. Parenthood – With the type of books I read, I just don’t find a place for it. I like sexy times and a child just turns that off.

9. Insta-love – When the characters meet and are already planning the reading by chapter 5, it’s a no go for me. I do like some semblance of real life to my books and this shit just doesn’t happen.

10. Religious – Joyce Meyer is one of my favorites, but I just don’t like it in my fiction books.

Whew! This list was harder than I thought it would be. Do you share any of my turn offs? What are some of yours?
