Top 10 Trends I'd Like to See More/Less Of


More

5. Steampunk

I think there's already plenty out there and I just need to read it. Love love LOVE steampunk fashion.

4. Standalones

There are so many series out there already and most of us really don't have the time.

3. Indie Bookstores

Do yourself and your local economy a favor!

2. Cthulhu Mythos

OF COURSE. Steampunk Cthulhu, now there's a story!

1. International Literature

Because America doesn't read nearly enough.

Less

5. eBooks

Meh.

4. "Chick Lit"

Insulting the intelligence of women everywhere.

3. Twilight

Please go away and take your diehard fangirls with you.

2. "Celebrity" Novels

How the hell does a piece of tripe allegedly written by Snooki end up as a New York Times bestseller? ENOUGH!

1. Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

Look, I love me some True Blood but this is getting ridiculous! Most of the stuff is clich├ęd and cheesy as hell.



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at
The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers' answers. Everyone is welcome to join. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Don't worry if you can't come up with ten every time . . . just post what you can!

I have got to read a steampunk novel. I love the style!

And I went back and forth about including indie bookstores on my list - I'd like to see good ones become a trend, but they are so hard to find.

Anyways, my list is here, if you're interested.

I'm so jealous of your Indie bookstores. Not only am I Canadian, but I'm small town Canadian... I have to drive a few hours just to get to a Chapters!

I wish I had thought of Celebrity novels. I very much agree.
