Top Ten Tuesday: Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book

Posted April 30, 2013 by Stephanie in Top Ten Tuesday / 16 Comments

Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish that features a new topic each week where we have to put down our top ten of it.

I used to participate in this meme but at some point I stopped. Not really sure why because I loved this meme, so I decided to just start it again. It’s so much fun! =D

This week’s topic:

Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book
I have put up some books that have the certain topic in them.

10. Elements ~
I really love books where the character or characters can control the elements. Storm (love me some Merrick brothers!)

9. Vampires ~
Lately it might not be the newest thing in paranormal fiction, but I will always love vampire books.

8. Forbidden Love ~
Books about forbidden love are a big weakness of mine. Whether it’s in the paranormal or contemporary genre, there’s just something about them that makes me devour the pages. 
7. Historical Fiction/Romance ~
I’m a sucker for history and historical fiction. Anything from ancient Egypt to Victorian England. I gotta read it.
6. Edgar Allen Poe ~
Poe is a small obsession of mine. I love his stories and poems but I also love books that are based on his poems or retellings from it. Anything.
5. Fairies/Fairies/Fey/Fae ~
Anyway you wanna call them. I love me some fae books! There’s just something about those beings that I love reading about. Their magic, mystery, beauty? Anything!

4. Unique Writing ~
I love books with a unique writing style. It has to be done just right, though, for me to really like it ben when it is, there are some beautiful gems out there.
3.  Peter Pan ~
Another little obsession from mine. I simply adore the original story by J.M. Barrie but there are some pretty great retellings of it out there too. I always have to absolutely read them no matter what. Love Peter!
2. Retellings ~
I adore fairytale and poem retellings. Lately there are lot fairytale retellings already but I’ll I can say is; keep ’em coming! Also am in love with poem retellings. There aren’t much of those but from what I’ve read so far it’s pretty damn good writing!
Cinder | Nameless | Christabel | Ashes on the Waves | Life After Theft
1. Greek Mythology ~
My absolute #1 is definitely Greek Mythology. I love, love, love this topic and can’t get enough to know more about ancient Greece, the gods and all the mythology.
And that’s my top ten of this week. I had a lot of fun doing it. Such a great topic this was!

    I'm a big fan of retellings as well. I like to see the author's own unique spin on a tale. Great list!
