Top Ten Tuesday: Things That Instantly Make Me Want to Read a Book

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. Check out upcoming Top Ten themes on Jana’s blog and go here to see what others have on their Top Ten Tuesday lists!

This week’s theme is things that instantly make me want to read a book. It may be the author, the genre, the blurb – whatever makes me want to snag a book and take it home, no questions asked. So in no particular order, I present to you…

  1. Ellery Adams.
  2. Anita Dickason.
  3. Heather Webber.
  4. Kimberly Fish.
  5. Lisa Regan.
  6. Magical realism.
  7. Second chance romance.
  8. Time travel.
  9. A bookish setting (library, bookstore, etc.)
  10. A setting in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
  11. BONUS: Fairy tale retelling
  12. BONUS: Alternate history

That’s a list of just a few of the things/authors that will make me want to drop everything and read a book right then!

    I like magical realism and alternate history, too.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  2. This is such a good list! I love Ellery Adams, and while I’m a bit picky about my magical realism, I’m a sucker for books set in the UK or a bookish setting, fairy tale retellings, and I absolutely adore alternate histories!

  3. #9 and #10 are big ones for me as well! I can’t resist a bookish book 🙂

    Happy TTT!
