Hi again! This will be my last Top 5 Wednesday for 2017 — how crazy is that? I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
Today’s topic is our bookish wishlist for 2018 and the types of books, genres, themes, tropes and topics we’d like to see more of.
Top 5 Wednesday was created over on BookTube by the wonderful Laniey at gingerreadslaniey and run by the lovely Sam of Thoughts on Tomes . Also you can check out the Goodreads page for past and future topics.
These books are listed in no particular order.
Diverse Fairytale and Myth Retellings
I adore retellings. If a book mentioned it’s a retelling or as been marketed that way I will buy it. But more 2018 I would love to see some fairytales and myths that aren’t from The Grimms Brothers or Ancient Greece. Each cultures has their own set of myths and fairytales and I love the chance to explore them all.
Medieval Historical Fiction
I really couldn’t do this list without wishing more historical fiction releases. Medieval history — 5th to 15th centuries — is hands down my favourite period to read about so I would love more titles to pick up next year. Also if some of those could be based in the Eastern European countries or around the Ottoman Empire that would be amazing!
Antiquity Historical Fiction
More Own Voice Books
Silenced Historical Perspectives
That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know what types of genres, topics and themes you’d like to see more of in the new year.
Until next time, happy reading!
