Top Ten Tuesday (82)

Top Ten Words That Draw Me In
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1.) High Fantasy
Fantasy is my favorite genre. Every time a high fantasy book comes out, I have to read it.

2.) Europe (especially France)
I love reading about Europe, but books set in any foreign land will pique my interest.

3.) Music
Music and books? My two favorite things.

4.) 1920s
Who doesn't love the age of the flappers and the Fitzgeralds?

5.) Author Promotions
You know those blurbs from authors on book covers? I always read them, and if an author like John Green or Libba Bray says they love it, I read it.

6.) Murder Mystery
Has anyone else noticed the serious lack of YA crime novels? (I guess you can't exactly have a teen police officer, but still.) I love a good mystery!

7.) Serial Killer
In a weird way, I can't get enough of serial killer novels. They make for awesome stories and scare the bejeebers out of me.

8.) Shakespeare
I'm not crazy about Shakespeare retellings, but conspiracy theories and historical fiction are AWESOME.

9.) Gothic
There's just something so darkly romantic about gothic novels, isn't there?

10.) Zombies
Zombie novels are either really good or really bad, but I keep reading them in the hopes of finding the gems!

What words will get you to read a book?

  1. I have serial killers on my list too! It is so hard to find a good YA crime/mystery! I did recently read The Rules for Disappearing which has a character in Witness Protection...that was pretty cool. Here are my picks http://wp.me/pzUn5-1uw

  2. I can't believe I forgot music! It's definitely something that draws me to a book. :)
