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

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is the Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book.

1. Dystopia - I love books where the world as we know it is over, and a new society is either starting or is already established. 

2. Zombies - I enjoy zombie apocalypse books (and movies). 

3. Revamped Fairy tales - This is a new obsession for me. I love the retold fairy tales. I just read The Never by Kristina Circelli, which reminded me of a darker Peter Pan. 

4. Fae - If Fae is in the title or description I will pick the book up. 

5. Shifters - I used to only read about werewolves, but the entire shifter world gets my interest lately. 

6. Holocaust - I love history, so most books set in the past interest me, but the Holocaust has always drawn my attention the most.

7. Titanic - When I was a teen I always got any books I could find on the Titanic, fiction or non-fiction. That word still catches my attention in a book.

8. Young Adult - I know that is a whole genre, but I tend to pick up any young adult books, especially with compelling stories, like 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher and Chasing Nikki by Lacey Weatherford. I also love young adult romances.

9. Rockstars - I blame, and thank, S.C. Stephens for this one. Ever since Kellan Kyle, I am always looking at books with a rockstar in them. 

10. Wolves - I love wolves. Werewolves, real wolves, it doesn't matter. If there are wolves involved I am going to check it out.

So that is my top ten. Let me know about yours in the comments or leave a link and I'll stop by.


  1. Oooh, I didn't even think of Titanic as a subject. I'm drawn to books about it, too. All the drama, survival stories, mystery, etc. just makes for a good story. It's too bad it really happened, but that's probably what makes it such an intriguing subject!

  2. The more people I visit this morning the more awesome topics I find that I wish I'd included! Love your list!!!

  3. I agree with dystopians and fiarytale retellings! And as a YA book blogger I obviously love YA :) Great list!!

    And yes, I totally buy books about Titanic. Fascinating!! :)

  5. Revamped fairy tales or even just revamped classics are fantastic. I love seeing the twists authors put on a well known story.

  6. I love a really good historical novel if it is done well. Great list! I love young adult even if some people do judge. :)
