Top Ten Tuesday: April 30, 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme host by The Broke and the Bookish

This week’s top ten Tuesday is Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book. This list is a bit scattered but hopefully you can catch where it’s a word and where it’s a topic (or both!)

  1. Dystopian – I am currently OBSESSED with anything dystopian. I will give any book pegged as dystopian a chance. I will admit though that this can be a total hit or miss and I am starting a lot of similarity in this category. What I really want is some stand alone dystopian *hint hint*
  2. Summer – I am a summer child. My favorite memories are almost all from summer. Plus I have WAY more reading time in the summer and love to read anything summer related at this time.
  3. Chicago – Chicago is my home town and I love reading about it (whether it be fiction or nonfiction). This is one reason I am in love with the Divergent series because it makes Chicago look so cool!
  4. Gaming – It didn’t hit me until recently but I am drawn to books that feature gamers. I am personally a closet gamer and love any and all references to old school games and modern games alike. I wish there were some more female gamer protagonists!
  5. Zombies – There are not enough zombie books in YA! I think this is the reason I read one when I see it.
  6. E-mail/Texting formatting – I really enjoy reading e-mails/texts between characters and therefore will pick up any book that’s title eludes to this (i.e. I’ve Got Your Number)
  7. Fairy tales – I love the rise in the amount of retellings of fairy tales and am always looking for more!
  8. Book – I like reading books that surround a book or has book in the title.
  9. Vampires – I like to think that I am over vampires and yet I continue to pick up these books! I can help but enjoy these.

    Zombies! I LOVE zombie books. They are simply terrifying to me. Also, totally love the text/email formatting in books. I don’t know what it is about it that makes it crack me up every time!

    Yup, I’m all about the vampire and dystopian novels… They always get extra attention on the shelf. Gaming books are awesome, I wish I had thought about that for my list!
    I love the ducks at the bottom of your blog. 🙂

    I love dystopian, but I agree — there’s so much same ole, same ole in the genre that it drives me crazy! Have you heard of ORLEANS by Sherri L. Smith? It’s a new dystopian that I thought was really different than others out there.
