1) More New Adult
By this I mean more than just the average NA stories we have. More variety. I want New Adult to grow as big as Young Adult, because I see SO much potential there!!
2) Mental Illnesses
I know there are some. Okay, many. But I find it super hard to find them. And to find books about these topics that do not get ruined by superficial and flat writing. Basically, I want more books about these serious topics.
3) More Rainbow Rowell novels
Seriously. There are only three. How am I supposed to live when I finished all of them?
4) More Katie McGarry Novels
5) More serious relationships
I am so sick of reading about people becoming a couple. I want to see people overcome struggles in their already existing relationships. No, insta-love, no 300 pages worth of tiptoeing around each other.
6) More sturdy relationships
You know, books where the relationship is not the main focus. Where the relationship actually works and is the supporting, not the struggling point in a characters' life (see Allegiant).
7) Boarding schools
And not just paranormal ones!!!
8) Books with City Flair
I know small towns are probably more relatable for the bored-to-death suburban teen. I know they are/wer for me. But I'd really like to read about Gossip Girl style books again, middle of New York, London, Paris, ...
9) More Asia
There is just no Asia in YA. I want China and Japan and Shanghai and Hong Kong and Singapour. Just please!
10) More family issues
Family is so important for most young adults! I want more big families, more family issues, more family stories. It's not always about boys!!
