Top Ten Words / Topics that Instantly Make Me Buy / Pick-up a Book

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

This is a hard one!  I think that more than words or topics I tend to gravitate to beautiful covers.  So...let me take a good look at by bookshelves and my Goodreads 'Read' books and see if I can find any patterns...

1. Books about Vampires - Having such a good experience with series like Twilight, Vampire Academy, Black City, and Southern Vampires I still like books about vampires

2.  Dystopian - The Hunger Games opened by eyes to this genre and I cannot get enough of this type of books.  It's fascinating to read about all these 'post-apocalyptic' worlds. Some times dystopia is mixed with angels, zombies, monsters and other 'beings'.  I love them all!

3.  Steampunk - This is another genre that I adore,  books like Leviathan, the Parasol Protectorate and The Girl in the Steel Corset are prime examples of this re-imagined past, full of advances and the paranormal. 

4.  Books with couples on the cover - Just because I'm a romantic at heart ;)

5.  Books about fairies - I love Ash, that's why!

6.  Fairy tale retellings - Love them!  Well, at least most of them.

7.  Books about Mythology - I love mythology and specially Greek myths.  I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson series and the Goddess Test series. 

8.  Books about Angels - I've had luck with these lately.  I love Unearthly 

9.  Fantasy - Love this genre!  See some of my favorite above. 

10. Paranormal - I know this is very broad, but so is the range of paranormal.  From werewolves to elementals, I love  them all...

What's in your Top Ten?


  1. I have yet to read a Steampunk book, but I have one literally sitting on my dining room table for next week!
