Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book




Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday has another topic and different bloggers give their top ten. I love making lists, so here's mine for this week!

This week's topic is 

Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book

It took some thinking before I came up with this list! I'd never really thought about what words/topics make me pick up or buy a book instantly. These ten came up!

Young Adult / New Adult

Obvious maybe, but I do pick up a book when I know it's young or new adult.

Magic / powers

I love reading about magic and/or powers! Harry Potter, The Elemental series, the Winter trilogy, I love them!

 Fairytale re-tellings

When I was young I loved reading fairytales and now I read the re-tellings!

Romance

What's a story without a little romance?


Dance

There are way too few books that include dancing!

Mythical creatures

Vampires, werewolves, mermaids, fae, you name it: YES!

Time traveling

Books with time traveling really need some thinking! Sometimes they even give me a headache! But I love them. 

Dystopia

One of my favorite genres!

Mythology

It's a bit the same as with the fairytales. I love re-tellings and learning more about the original stories this way!

Contemporary

I discovered contemporary as a genre only last year and I absolutely love it! Most of my favorite books right now are contemporaries. 

What words/topics make you pick up/buy a book?

  1. Interesting. A lot of these draw me in, but they can also send me scurrying away. I wonder why that is.

    Here is my list of Books I Can't Pass Up!

  2. Really great list. I think I agree with most of it, and a couple have made it on to my own list. To be honest, dance never occured to me as a possible topic/word so it was interesting to see why you picked it.

  4. Nice picks. I'm not big on time travel cause that means history and I don't like it much... :D

  5. I love how much fairy tale retellings is coming up on people's lists! They are great! I love magical stories too. Great list.

  6. New Adult is sort of the thing you described over at my post: I actually own a bunch but I haven't read all that many of them yet. I really need to get to that, so far I'm failing my reading challenge :/
    Magic is also important to me! But since I read mostly fantasy/paranormal, having some sort of ability is so 'logical' to me that I somehow forgot to mention it :P
    I'm only now getting into Dystopian books! I avoided them for a long time, but I've read some recently that I really liked.
    Great list :) Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Time traveling! I can't believe I didn't think about that when I was making my list!

  8. Great list! I love mythical creatures. I also love books that have mythical creatures in it that aren't done much. Like elves, sirens( not mermaids), dwarfs, ect..

  9. I have see so many people lis fairytale retellings today. It's at the top of my list too. I also loved fairytales as a kid and it's so great to see the original story expanded.

    And stories with magic are always okay with me :) Especially Harry Potter!!
