What Would You Like to be Reading?

If you could get your favorite author(s) to whip out a perfect book based on your criteria, what would you ask for?

For instance, is there a secondary character you would love to see take the spotlight? Can you think of any heroes and heroines you’d like to see more of? Is there a particular kind of story – like something about mermaids, or something with a tragic hero – you’d like more of?

Personally, I’m in the mood for something from Tara Janzen. I love the way her “Crazy” books flow from one to the next, each time taking a secondary character from the previous book and expanding them into the main character. She’s moved on to other books, but I’d love a new one from this series.

If you could pluck a book ready-made from the either, what would it be?

  1. I’d love to read more of the sweeping epics of long ago. Not since Diana Gabaldon have I been eager to read a series of 1000 page tomes, but hers were phenomenal. Besides that generic type, I wish Sarah MacLean’s sequel to Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake would hit the shelves before October. :)

  2. Anything by Laura Levine. Death of a Trophy Wife is coming out tomorrow and Amazon has me on it’s torch list.

  3. Hmm, I don’t know. I know I miss Christina Dodds’ governess series.

  4. I still haven’t read all Christina Dodd’s governess series. At least I don’t think so. I kind of caught them in bits and pieces the way I do most of my reading.

  5. I feel the need for a good book, but I just don’t have much time.

  6. That’s a tough question! I’m so into my own stuff I haven’t had time to even think about reading!

  7. I could just say “Ditto” to Christiana’s response. Though I did dive into Miranda Neville’s THE WILD MARQUIS last night and by the end of page one, I knew it was going to be a fun ride and worth making the time to read it.

  8. Sorry, I’m so late today – I just got home. It’s been a long day with no internet!

    To answer your question, I loved Nora Robert’s Three Sisters’s Island trilogy and would like to see another one like that from her. She jumps all over the place with her trilogies and I always enjoy them, but some I really really love. Three Sisters’s was one of my favorites. I also dug the ones that took place in Ireland. She hasn’t done a series there in long time.

    Great question today, Alice!

  9. I hadn’t realized it’s been so long since she did a trilogy in Ireland.

  10. Ooooo, Laurie, you’re right. And, I really loved the Chesapeake Bay ones too (the one about the brothers). I like her latest–the wedding planner company ones, but the Born In and the one I mentioned are my favorite trilogies of hers.
