Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book (topic originally done back in 2013 as top ten words/topics that will make me instantly want to read a book) — so yeah basically any topic or theme or ANYTHING (ie if X person recommends it) that will make you instantly want to pick up a book. My list will likely be called Jamie-bait because there are soooo certain things you can say in a summary or a review that will just instantly draw me to it!
This should be an easy one…
1. Beautiful Covers
I’m a sucker for a gorgeous cover. I have to admit that I sometimes request books on netgalley without even reading the blurb…
2. Sports Romance
Is this news to anyone? Especially Hockey!
3. College Romance
Same as the above!!!
4. Geeky Things
When a book mentions geeky things in the blurb, I want it.
5. All the ships
I’ll ship them all, so if a book has them, I want it.
6. Lay Lines
Incredibly, I’m digging this!!! Damn, I blame The Raven Boys for this.
7. Unique formats
Unique formats lige Illuminae really get me going.
8. Rom Coms
They’re usually so much fun, so I love them.
9. Book recommendations
When someone I trust recommends a book to me, I don’t even think twice.
10. Auto-buy authors
If one of my favorites is dropping a book, I’m gonna want to buy it.
