FIVE Challenge: Hopes for YA

I've been wanting to do some sort of a wrap-up post with 2010, with regards to reading books and blogging. What better way to get started than through Persnickety Snark's challenge? Hope you're a part of this challenge too! If you are, go ahead--comment and link to your blog so I can check out what great reads you picked up in 2010!

Today's 5 is for...
Hopes for YA

Hmm...this one should be easy. We'll see. And this post will be short, since I'm going out soon.

1. Less series. I want more books that are finished in one go! Luckily, there are not as many series with contemporary novels. :)

2. More contemporary. I can never get enough of it!!

3. More characters with flaws! Ones that we can relate to.

4. More independent female protagonists!! Strong, bold, unafraid. I hate Mary Sues and weak, useless, frail girls. Please authors, hear my pleas! Also girls who are able to carry on and be strong, even if "her guy" walks out on her.

5. Hmm...books that teach lessons. That remind us of things that we might otherwise forget, but are just so important. Yeah. But don't preach.
