  1. Great list! I especially like non-dystopian future. I like futuristic books, but I'd be nice to get some that aren't so sad and depressing.

  2. I love reading victorian England books! I haven't read any westerns, but that would definitely be fun! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. LOVE the In Death series, and it was the basis of one of my locations, as well. :)

  4. Great list, especially number 10! :-)

  5. I like the idea of reading a non-dystopian future set book.

  6. Have you read any of Julie Garwood's historical romances? Some of her books are set during medieval times, and I really enjoy them. Particularly The Secret, Honor's Splendor, Saving Grace, The Bride. Well, honestly, I like nearly all her historicals :)

    1. I'm slowly making my way through Garwood's backlist. I really enjoyed The Secret and The Bride, but had to DNF Honor's Splendor for some reason. I'll check out Saving Grace next! Thanks for commenting.

  7. OOooh I'd love to read some books set in Russia or on the sea! Ahhh actually I just love all of your choices! :)


Yeah comments!! Thanks for visiting my blog. I will try to reply to your comments as soon as possible.
