Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Wish Had More Magic

7 Feb


This Top Ten theme was sooooo hard for me to figure out!  It took me a long time to not only figure out what direction I wanted to go but also finding books that fit the theme. I spent a long time trying to decide if the books I was choosing would already have these elements in them or if they didn’t have anything to do with the theme but would be fun to read if they were different in some way. After thinking more about what I like in books, I decided to focus on magical realism, a sub-genre of fantasy/realistic fiction, so I chose books that either already include some magical realism aspects or others that I thought would be fun to see a little magic in them. Take these ideas with a grain of salt as I am not a writer and I already read these books and enjoyed them as is!
