I've talked about this topic on Twitter a lot, and asked for my fellow tweeters' opinions. I started thinking about it when it was taking me months to spend book gift cards because there was nothing coming out that felt different and exciting enough for me to want to buy it. It's not very often that something comes out that's completely new and groundbreaking.
A couple of things that I would like to see more of and would buy the heck out of, are:
Horror. I desperately want more horror. Although, sometimes what I refer to as horror might not actually be horror so much as just genuinely creepy. Basically, I would love more books like:
Thrillers. Please god, someone publish more young adult thrillers. Something along the lines of:
Science fiction. Real, actual science fiction that takes place in outer space, not dystopian. This is without a doubt my favorite genre to read and write. An example, (which I have yet to read but own and have heard tons about):
A suggestion received from a Twitter follower which I couldn't agree with more was:
International. Books that take place in other countries and cultures.
What are some things you would like to see more of in young adult literature?
