Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Wanted More Of

A weekly blog meme by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This theme might seem a bit vague but my interpretation is this: I immediately read a book and wanted more of either: 1) books within the same universe, 2) books by the same author, or 3) books with the same theme (i.e. enemies-to-lovers, childhood friends-to-lovers, dark fantasy, or the like).

So… Here we are. 🙂

This might be really obvious but… I don’t think I’ll ever tire of reading stories within the Grishaverse. I finished Rule of Wolves a couple of weeks ago and gosh, it was just so darn good. And that ending? Like hello, surely there has to be more? Maybe it’s all just wishful thinking at this point but I would gobble up all and any books!

I love historical fiction novels; historical mystery is still a little new to me, but Korean historical mysteries are entirely new and I just want all of them! My first introduction to them in YA is Hur’s The Silence of Bones. I purchased The Forest of Stolen Girls a couple of weeks ago and while I won’t get to it this month (I have–shockingly–somewhat of a TBR), I hope to read it within the coming months.

A bit in the same vein as the above books, I’d love more books that interweaves Korean mythology, or really any non-Western mythology. There are definitely some books out there that do immediately come to mind: the Daevabad trilogy, Shadow of the Fox series, The Wrath and the Dawn series.

Will I ever get tired of Beauty and the Beast retellings? Probably not. I actually have an eARC of another one that releases in July called Curses by Lish McBride, which is a bit of a gender-bent retelling. Yep. I’m here for that.

Perhaps this falls into the “retellings” category, too, but I don’t seem to tire of them. I love how Poston’s Once Upon a Con series is an ode to fan/con culture but to fairytales themselves, which are just so fun. I’ll admit that I haven’t read Bookish and the Beast yet, but… it is a B&B retelling and as I just mentioned above, I don’t have a doubt it’ll be a new favorite. 🙂

Are there any books you simply want more of? Let me know in the comments! And, of course, if you post T10T’s as well, link them below and I’ll check them out!
