Top Ten Tuesday

After yesterday's 'confession' (which isn't much of a confession seeing as writing romance has been a lifelong dream of mine!) I stumbled across a great blog written by a new author who has just had her book accepted for publication by Harlequin Mills & Boon. Stephanie London's story is very inspiring and it really makes me want to dig out my pen and get something down on paper. It might not come to anything but I've got to try, right?

Anyway, on Stephanie's blog there was a link to another blog, The Broke and the Bookish, who host a Top Ten Tuesday. To put it simply, this combines a love of books with a love of lists. These people are surely after my very own heart! So, I thought I would toss my cap into the ring and join in!

The topic this Tuesday is...

So here we go... I'd love to see:

1. More books by Julie James. Love, love, love her books so if she could faster then that would be grand! ;)

2. More FBI heroes. I'd love to read more stories about FBI agents that don't concentrate on some of the more seedier crimes. Corporate crimes would suit me nicely!

3. More Lawyers as heroes/heroines. Sharp, sassy and full of banter. I might not want to be part of the corporate world but I love reading about it.

4. More books set in Scotland that don't attempt terrible accents (or any accent at all!)

5. More books with people who start up their own businesses but still have time to fall in love.

6. More series books by Nora Roberts. Her trilogies and quartets are happy books for me and I just love the way they make me feel so positive and upbeat.

7. Movies made into books. The books that are made into movies are always so much better so I would like to see some movies (particularly action adventure films that aren't necessarily romantic) turned into books with a lot more lovey dovey stuff thrown in.

8. More introverted heroines. Proper introverts who manage to still get their man.

9. More nerdy heroes. I love nerdy guys that are secretly buff. It's a Clark Kent fantasy, I suppose.

10. Real life love stories. I'm intrigued by the thought of fictional stories based on real life couples overcoming the obstacles and falling in love.

That was surprisingly difficult for someone who just needs hugging, kissing and canoodling in a book to make me like it!


  1. Yes to number 10! I would love to read something like that.

    1. Hopefully the bigwigs at the book companies are reading all our lists and taking notes!! :D Thanks for your comment. J :)

  2. Great list. I'd love more nerdy characters! I'd also love some of my favourite movies to be turned into books. Great picks :)
