This week’s topic is the Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book
- Written in Verse
I’m a HUGE fan of poetry. I can’t really get enough of it. So magine my joy when I find full fledged novels written in verse!
I haven’t read many of these books but the ones I have, I absolutely adore.
- Written by Pepper Winters or Jennifer Armentrout
These are two of my all time favourite authors. They have two incredibly different styles of writing and yet, I’ve fallen in love with both of them equally. I’d pretty much read any book they write.
- Fairytale Retellings
Classic fairytales with a modern twist, or a twist of any kind, always call out to me. I especially love retellings of Beauty and the Beast. Also Cinderella. I just love fairytales.
- Dysfunctional Families
I’m really not sure why I’m attracted to this genre.. I just am. Maybe it just makes me feel good about my own family 😄
- Breathtaking Covers
I can’t resist an absolutely gorgeous or intriguing book cover. Even if the synopsis of the book isn’t all that good, I’ll somehow find a way to convince myself that I like it. Just for the cover.
- Books with kidnapping
I love reading books with kidnapping. I love to see how the captives hold their own and how they fight through their captivity and how they SURVIVE. Another thing I love about this theme is stockholm syndrome!
I find it fascinating to read about reincarnation. I enjoy witnessing how the charcters’ past lives entwertwine with their present lives and how the events of their previous lives affects their current life. I also love how each character comes to deal with it in his/her own personal way.
- Mental Illnesses
Anxiety, depression, suicide etc. are very real issues affecting millions of people, especially young adults. Books dealing with these subjects are extremely important because I feel that they support those struggling from these issues in reality. They get to know that they’re not alone and often, these books also offer a solution. They encourage people to seek help. There can never be enough books about mental llnesses.
- Gut wrenchers
They say that some book will surely make you cry? Sign me up!
There’s nothing like crying your heart out over a book. Nothing.
- Taboo Romance
Forbidden fruit is always tempting.
