TTT: Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list. Everyone is welcome to join.    

This week's topic is:
Top 10 Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book
*These are in no particular order.*

1. Magic- I LOVE magic. And after Harry Potter I'll read anything dealing with it.

2. Romance- Call me mushy, but in order for me to read it, it has to have some romance.  And if its forbidden love, all the more better! 

3. Mythology- After reading Rick Riodran's Percy Jackson series I am HOOKED. I will give anything with mythology a try. 

4. Mysteries- I really love mysteries. I love to try and guess the ending, but then hate it when I'm right because that means I was able to find it too easy lol 

5. Paranormal Creatures: I love the made up paranormal world. I love the way authors can make up their worlds and their predicaments. 

6. World Building- I love to see how things can be made up or enhanced through the author's eyes. 

7. Time travel- I love the flashing of back and forth! 

8. Retellings- It doesn't matter what its a retelling of, I love them! Even if I had never heard of the book its a retelling of, I will still read it just to see the twist. 

9. Humor- I love to laugh. 

10. Beautiful Covers- I know, I know.... Shallow. But I love a beautiful cover. If its attractive, I'll pick it up and THEN read the synopsis. 

What about you??? 


  1. Mysteries, time travel, and (fairy tale) retellings are on my list too, and I love books with a lot of humor in them! :) My TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.com/2013/04/29/topicsword/

  2. Two that I didn't think of that I loooove on your list: World building and beautiful covers. WB, for one, is what makes most of the brilliant books out there what they are: brilliant. And beautiful covers draw us all in, whether we like to admit it or not. I stand with you on this 100%! ;) I wish I'd thought of those! ;)

    Great list, and thanks for stopping by! I'm a new follower! :)
