Top Ten Tuesday/Settings

Hosted by thatartsyreadergirl.

July 23: Settings I’d Like to See More Of (Or At All)

A setting I never want to see again is making love without consent isn’t sexy; it’s rape.
A novel that has body-shaming isn’t cool.
I would love to see my book about HIV, AIDS and the ballroom scene.
An uplifting, story of an immigrant.
More books with autism characters.
Own voices transgender books. (It’s so hard to find any)
More book based in Israel and middle east issues.
Settings around family.
Settings where friends stand up for each other.
Books that are written around homeless and poverty.
