Consider yourself warned.  This reading journal is about to become a writing journal!

Here’s my MAGNA CARTA I (see No Plot?  No Problem! for details) – a list of things I really like in books.

MAGNA CARTA I
Magical girls
Smart girls
Sisters
Love that doesn’t get in the way of adventure
Love that isn’t too angsty
Love that is fun

Horses
Smart men who have principles
Misunderstood people (mostly because they’re too smart)
A few close friends
Fantastical elements
Cleverly hidden exposition
Intricate interweaving of mythology

Puzzles
Girls who are strong but not physically tough

What about you?  What elements do you really like in your stories?
