Top Ten Tuesday #12

By 7:27 AM

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book
 
1. Dystopian. (I love dystopian novels, so I always check out books that describe it as such!)

2. Best Friends Falling in Love (I really like stories where best friends realize they have feelings for each other! I don't know why it's so sweet, but it is.)

3. Time Travel/ Parallel Universes (Yes please! I love reading about time travel done right.)

4. YA Historical Fantasy (More books like Rae Carson's Fire and Thorns series or R.L. LaFevers' His Fair Assassins series? YES PLEASE!)

5. Hot guys falling in love with the nerd girls (It's fun to watch that kind of romance bloom.)

6. Sci-Fi Fantasy/Dystopian (I love sci-fi, fantasy, and dystopian. Naturally, I'd like them together!)

7. 'Torn between.... '(Yes, I like a well-done love triangle.)

8. Fae/Fairies (I love reading about the Fae- especially the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. They completely fascinate me!)

9. God/Goddess/Mythology (I like contemporaries that mix in mythology- Percy Jackson, Goddess Test, etc. )

10. Dual POV's. (I love reading books told from multiple POV's. Especially when it's the love interest's!)

  1. Everyone but me thought of love triangles I'm kicking myself! I agree with all of those especially #10. Dual POV's can be so fun to read if it's done right.

    1. Exactly! Alot of these only work when they're done correctly. I'm really lucky to have read quite a few great Dual POV books lately though, so I forget about the bad ones!

    1. Me too Jasmine! I love hearing the others' thoughts and feelings! And Greek mythology is my favorite, though I've become a big fan of Egyptian lately too.

  6. I love everything on your list but Dual POV. Most of the time it is done badly and drives me up a wall. There are a few exceptions like Across the Universe series. I just hate head hopping especially first person head hopping. UGH!
