Top Ten Books I Wish Had More Or Less

 

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is an interesting one- Top Ten Books With More Or Less of X. This is almost like a freebie- so many choices. I'm going with...some books that need more this or that. And... certain kinds of books I need to have more of.  

The Wind in the Willows (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics):   
I love these leatherbound classic editions from Barnes & Noble. I have a few but there's a ton I'd like. 

Journey to the Center of the Earth

I need some of the Rock Paper Books stuff. 

The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire, #6)

I need more sample chapters... since winter never seems to come.  

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)

Speaking of Martin... way more dragons. For a book called A Dance witth Dragons we didn't get much dragon stuff. Sure there was a bit... but MORE

I need more books like this- I'm in the middle of it now and it's SO good. I need all the generation ship/ clone/ far future books NOW.

I know this is a movie but it's a book too right? And I could have used more Luke frickin Skywalker... I mean a minute? Seriously? Although I know we'll get a lot of him and Rey in Episode VIII. 

Heir to the Jedi 

Speaking of Star Wars- I could take more Kevin Hearne stories. 


Sanctuary Bay

I liked this story but it's a standalone. The end left a big opportunity for follow up but the authors don't have plans for a sequel at the moment. 

Central Station

I need more cyberpunk.

  1. Yes to more dragons! Not only in Game of Thrones, but in general I feel like stories can always use more dragons :) And yes, more Game of Thrones would also be nice :)

  3. I like the way you did this - instead of trying to pick an overarching theme, just what you need more of! GAH, I made it hard on myself. and Yes on GOT!!

  6. Now you've got me all curious about Six Wakes. First, I love the cover, and the fact that you say it's SO good...

  7. I didn't know I needed Rock Paper Books stuff but now I'm very aware that I do! I love those Barnes and Noble editions as well and would really love to own a few more editions!

  8. The leather bound editions ARE gorgeous! I haven't bought any for myself, though I did get one as a gift once, and never gave it to my cousin. SO... yeah, I do still have that sitting on my shelf. Ooops!

  9. Pretty sure there is no such thing as too many dragons. Yes, any book that has dragon in the title, ought to have a plethora of dragons!

  10. George R R Martin is seriously taking the proverbial just now, what is the hold up!!?

  11. Definitely need more ASoIaF, with or without the extra dragons! (But certainly wouldnt complain if they made more appearances)

  12. Would always love to have more dragons. I also really like the cover for Sanctuary Bay but am not big on stand alones

  13. Haha, totally agree with you on the need for more Luke in The Force Awakens. LOVED the movie but a minute was not nearly enough so hoping for tons of Luke in Episode VIII.

  14. "...since winter never seems to come." Lol and so true. Sigh.... So glad Six Wakes is good! I can't wait to read that one!

  15. I totally didn't realize that Star Wars book was by Kevin Hearne - I may have to bump that up my tbr now! :)

  16. I'm sad to say I haven't read any there

  17. Winter never seems to come. LOL. I could definitely use more of that kind of winter too.

  18. You do love those Rock Paper Scissors books lol. But I love them too.

    Ooh, 6 Wakes has me interested from that cover. It looks kind of familiar though. Have you mentioned it before? Ima add it to my list since I just went and read the blurb lol.

    1. I do! In fact I may order one or two... :)

      Six Wakes was good, I loved the premise of it. I don't think I've mentioned it before but I've seen a few reviews. I think you might like it.

    1. I don't think I've ever actually read it.

  20. Couldn't agree more on A Dance With Dragons -- it needed more dragons! Hahaha. There are definitely some books I can think of that need more to the story, like a sequel. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken comes to mind!

    1. Definitely more dragons! But then I need more dragons across the board!

      I haven't read Alexandra Bracken but I'll take a look.

  21. What a great idea for your list! I haven't read A Dance With Dragons, but I imagine I will agree with you when I do. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh yes, I agree! 'A Dance with Dragons' needed more dragon action :)

    A lot of books need more dragons. They are the only 'Deus ex Machina' I accept! Wrote yourself into a corner? No idea how to go on? Enter DRAGON. All good.

  24. I'd vote for more Luke Skywalker! Can't wait to see where they go with VIII.
