This week's topic is
Settings I'd Like to See More Of
1. Ski Lodges - More winter books please! There's so much potential: skiing, snowboarding, tubing, ice skating. Not to mention LODGING. Hot chocolate, fireplaces, cozy sweaters. Cute boys everywhere. I love reading winter-y books and don't know about nearly enough of them.
2. College - I want more New Adult that isn't terrible. I hope that more authors will take on the challenge of writing a really good, believable college storyline. Gayle Forman did it with Just One Day, Julie Cross did it with Tempest, Diana Peterfreund did it with the Secret Society Girl books. C'mon authors, get on this!
3. England - I know, there are plenty YA books out there with an English setting, but I can't seem to get enough of them. Being set in England usually means there's a cute boy with an accent, which is almost always an automatic A+ (I'm exaggerating, an accented love interest starts you off at a B- at most). In the words of the immortal Britney Spears, "Gimmie gimmie more, gimmie more, gimmie gimmie more."
4. New Jersey - I LOVE when books are set in my state. They don't even actually have to be near me, but it just makes me happy to have even a vague idea of the area they're referring to. (See: The Curseworkers books, The Stephanie Plum books)
5. Tour Bus/Concert Venue/anywhere that might mean there's a touring musician in the story because, hello, musicians, woo! (And yes, that is a picture of 4/5ths of One Direction. Can't help it.)
Do you all have any suggestions of books with these settings? What settings are you most excited to see more of?
