Top Ten Tuesday: things that will make me instantly want to read a book

Top Ten TuesdayThis week on TTT we’re discussing the things that will make you instantly want to read a book. Whether it’s a plot device, historical setting, or something really quirky—you know there’s at least one thing you just can’t resist! Here are the top ten things that hook me every time, in no particular order:


  • Time travel
  • Dragons
  • Other dimensions/alternate worlds
  • Fringe science
  • Amnesia
  • Dreams
  • Retellings of famous stories
  • Badass female leads
  • Unreliable narrators
  • Characters in hoods on the cover (I’ve joked about this one before but it’s true)
What bookish things make you instantly want to read a book? If you linked up for TTT make sure to leave me your link in the comments so I can check it out!

    I have to agree on Fringe science, probably traditional science too. I have noticed that a lot of the books I have have forwards written by other authors who’s works I have enjoyed (I think it’s more common with scientific books!) also some of the podcasts I listen to make great recommendations.

    One of my all time favorite books I picked up after John Green referenced it in Crash Course :)
