  1. I love books with strong female characters in as well. I have dystopian and fairy-tale retellings on my list this week too. Fab list!

  2. Cool list! I like all the same things, except I haven't read much new adult, but there is still time.

  3. Great list! I love amazing world-building, too, as well as funny & light romances :)

  4. I so agree with you on your list! Fairy tales are great along with strong female characters. I want to slap the whiny ones. Heartbreaking is so great because sometimes you just want to tear a little. I keep seeing myths and I can't believe I forgot that one! Great list :)

    My TTT

  5. What a great list! I have seen other bloggers top ten Tuesdays lists today, but I definitely have the most in common with yours. I love all of those!

  6. I like Shapeshifters, but it seems that a lot of them are very familiar nowadays. I absolutely must have books with strong female leads. Must! Best kind of chick in a book, for me. I feel the same way about Dystopians as I do Shapes. Love them, but having a hard time finding original stories. I love a light and funny romance. Always. I have yet to read a New Adult book. Fairy Tale Retellings are a big time must have. Vamps- depends on story. Intense and heartbreaking- I have to be in the right mood. I always wish for awesome world-building. And Mythology is another absolute must have. Any and all mythology!

  7. Percy Jackson and the Olympians is still my favorite series of all time. And yes, im 18 which I think can be considered "old" for other people but what the heck! teehee. Mythology all th way
