Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book.
This list took me a long time to write because I’m not really picky about what I read.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Serial Killers
I love reading books about serial killers (I Hunt Killers and Game for example). That’s probably why I am so obsessed with the television show Criminal Minds.
I want to learn how a madman’s mind works. What goes inside their heads? Why do they do the things they do? How do we recognize them? Do we even want to recognize them?
Masquerade balls. Masks and gowns and horse carriages. Enough said.
4. Some sort of natural disaster
I love reading about realistic natural disasters and seeing how and if people would survive them.
5. Investigation of a murder
I love these kinds of books. I love solving the cases along with the main character and piecing together all the clues. I love the suspense and the moment where everything is revealed.
I want to go to Paris. What’s the best way to prepare for it? Simple, you read about it.
7. Abusive Family
I want to read about what children in an abusive family face. I want to learn how they live their lives and if they ever have the courage to break the cycle. I want the book to tear at my heart and break it into pieces. I want it to make me question humanity.
8. Assassins or Spies
Who doesn’t like to read about assassins and spies? Who doesn’t want to hear about their mission and read all those awesome fight scenes?
There are very few Young Adult books specifically about dragons. Seriously, there are so many different types of dragons that I don’t even know why dragon books are not as popular as vampire books.
10. Told from guy’s POV
There are so many Young Adult books out there that are written from a girl’s POV. I usually love reading a guy’s POV better because then, I know how guys think. :D
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten words/topics that instantly make you buy/pick up a book?
