Top Ten Things That Make Me Pick Up A Book

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

1. Royalty - There's been a plethora of books featuring royalty at the moment, and I am living!

2. Enemies to Lovers - So many books with this trope. I'm currently reading The Fever King by Victoria Lee and the enemies to lovers is great!

3. Gorgeous Cover - Like these:

4. Women Kicking Butt - I love women able to physically kick butt (think Throne of Glass) but women who talk circles around others are also amazing

5. Unapologetically Nerdy Girls - Give me some girls who love books, video games, and science!

6. Vampires - I just really love vampires

7. Greek Mythology - I love Greek mythology

8. Twists on Retellings - Beauty and Beast, Cinderella, give me some new takes please!

9. A Good Tag Line - The first line or two of a description can make or break if I'll continue to find out more about the book

10. Girls in Stereotypically Male Spaces - I'm thinking women in typically men's sports, etc


  1. Hate-to-love is one of my favorite tropes, too, for sure! I want them to work for it, dang it. :D Strong women is a big one for me, too, and I love me some Greek mythology! I will forever go out of my way to read something inspired by it. Great list!

    Here's my TTT post.

  2. Ooh, greek mythology is a good answer. I love books that reference or retell those stories.

  3. I love the whole "nerdy is the new cool" phenomenon. It definitely was not like this when I was a kid :) I love me an apologetic nerd (or two or three ...).

    Happy TTT!

  4. Definitely yes to everything on this list!
