Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week it’s about things that make you instantly want to read a book!
- If there’s magic involved, I’ll probably read it without question. I especially love books with super unique magic system like the one in Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
- Myths/legends from other cultures like those found in Fear the Drowning Deep.
- Royal people fighting to take over the throne, (preferably with magic!) 😉
- Assassins because they’re sneaky, and sometimes they throw daggers, and I just love them! I mean I love them in books, NOT real life! I would NOT want to meet an assassin in real life!
- Any kind of psychological illness!
- Bad boys with deep, dark secrets who actually turn out to be good. So what if it’s a giant trope?!
- Diverse characters like those in Tiny Pretty things.
- I’ll read pretty much anything about angels.
- Awkward, preferably writerly characters because they’re just so relatable! Fangirl, anybody?
- I will read literally anything by Rick Riordan or Maggie Stiefvater because they have never failed to tell an amazing story. In other words, go read The Raven Cycle right now because you are missing out on great literature if you haven’t!
