Top Ten Tuesday #1 - Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they list a new topic for a top ten list. This week it's about things that make you want to pick up a book and buy/rent it without hesitation. Here are my top 10.

  1. Faries - Fairies are by far my favorite mythological creatures!
  2. Magic - Something about witches and warlocks gets me all excited.
  3. Vampires - Particularly if it involves a sadistic vampire ;)
  4. Dystopian - I'm always curious to see how others perceive the end of the world as we know it.
  5. Ghosts - I've always been fascinated by the hereafter. What does happen to us when we die?
  6. Young Adult - This is my absolute favorite genre. It keeps me young at heart!
  7. Paranormal - Because this involves all things supernatural.
  8. A Beautiful Cover - If a book has a cover that is too spectacular to pass up, I have to have it.
  9. An Alluring Title - Titles! I know how hard it is to come up with them so when I find a really good one, I must read it.
  10. And lastly, today I found that a steamy scene will make me buy a book.



  1. I agree with every single one of your picks! I enjoy reading a good book that involves vampires or faeries. The supernatural stuff always wins me over.

  2. Thanks for visiting my TTT. We have a lot in common! I am currently working on reading Katie Alender's Bad Girls Don't Die series...evil ghosts! You'll have to suggest some faery books since I struggle with them. Have a great week!

  3. I do love me a beautiful cover too! And ghosts are probably the most scary of paranormal creatures to me because they are the most likely to be real!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
    p.S. LOVE your blog layout! SO PRETTY!

  4. I love a steamy scene but I never really know they're coming unless I'm a fan of the author and know from their previous books or I stumble upon them by accident!

    And buying books because of gorgeous covers? That is the reason half the books in my shelves got bought. I just can't resist!

    And the best thing is when many of the things on your list manage to to overlap! Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you have a great week :)

    1. Usually, I don't either, but I was reading a teaser form another blog and it had one. I bought the book in a heart beat. It was then that I realized, I would buy a book with the potential for steamy scenes ;)
