TTT | Bookish Wishes

Posted June 21, 2022 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in top ten tuesday / 11 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

I love this prompt mostly because I love fulfilling bookish wishes for others than getting anything myself. Here is the amazon link to my wish list.

Can we just admire this wonderful cover for a moment?! A royal family and an Asian period drama that delves into the idea of empire, storytelling, and the anger of women. I’m already in love with this book!

I’ve heard so many great things about this book! There’s queer romance, Black joy, plus-sized beauty, and Mexican pride all taking place on a reality TV show. What’s not to love?!

Jordan Baker grows up in the upper echelons of American Society in the 1920s. She has money, education, and invitations to some of the most exclusive parties of the Jazz Age. Yet, she’s also queer and Vietnamese adoptee who is treated as an exotic attraction, while most important doors stay closed. The jazz age is such a lush, terrible, worldwind of an era that I love learning about and reading stories set in. So I’m excited about that as well as adding more diverse books to my list.

I really want to own all of Jemisin’s books, and I can’t believe I still don’t have any of them! I’m appalled with myself.

I finally read Red, White, and Royal Blue a couple of weeks ago, and I now need McQuiston’s other novels. And this one has time travel!

I’ve heard great things about this book as well! This book sounds like such a great historical, queer read with the Red-Care and deportations. I’m also excited since this features a lesbian bar (The Telegraph Club, obviously), places that have been disappearing in recent years.

Girls teaming up to overthrow the kingdom that features a Black female lead, that’s the kind of anarchy I look forward to. I’m always a fan of fairy tale retellings and this one sounds amazing!

I love, love, love period dramas!! Period dramas with queer people, yes please! A woman trying to get over her ex-lover’s marriage, and a Countess who is looking forward to quiet widowhood. But neither of them expect to be intrigued by the other.

Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a huge fan of Romeo & Juliet (It’s not that it’s bad it’s that it’s overused). But a Romeo & Juliet retelling that centers on China, is set in the 1920s, and features rival gangs; I am here for this!!

I’m always going to be someone who loves witches in her fantasy stories. Growing up has not changed that! A contemporary lesbian romance set in Salem, which is just perfect, sounds right up my alley.

Happy Reading Darlings!
