Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week's topic is Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book. Here are things that I find hard to resist:
Authors or characters with the same first name as me - This doesn't happen that often, so I feel a little thrill of excitement when someone has the same first name as I do!
Fairy tale retellings - I like to see new remixes on known (or more obscure) tales.
Magic - I've got to pass the time unti I get my Hogwarts (or should I say Ilvermorny) acceptance letter!
Noir - I'm with this genre (books and movies, for that matter) "straight down the line", baby. 10 points to Hufflepuff if you know what I'm quoting!
Pirates - Who can resist?
Sassy, snarky, sarcastic characters - The more the better.
Time Travel - One of my favorite elements of sci-fi! (Does anyone else hope Timeless gets renewed for a second season?)
Unreliable narrators - Don't you just love questioning everything you think you know?
V.E. Schwab and Maggie Stiefvater - I just need more of these two authors in my life.
Villainous or morally gray leading characters - Pretty please!
What makes you want to read a book? Can you resist any of the things I would love to see more of in books (or anything for that matter)? Thanks again for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting!
