Top Ten Tuesday is an original list feature meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is so much fun, let me tell you about those things that will make me want to read the book ASAP!

    • Books from these authors: J. M. Darhower, Tillie Cole, Elle Kennedy, Sarina Bowen, Jana Aston, Amy Harmon, J. R. Ward, L. J. Shen, Erin Watt
    • Book with these tropes: enemies to lovers, mafia books (is that even a trope?), tutoring (but mostly when combined with enemies to friends trope), books that have a married couple (no love triangle in sight), books with twists
    • Books from NetGalley: Literally, all the books from NG. All. Of. Them.
    • Books with original content: Now I know this is a generic thing but if I read a blurb and I have never read a book like that then the chances of me getting that book are high, like ordinary people with powers. Same thing applies if I read a book with a used trope but a fresh take.
    • Books with retellings/mythology/historical fiction: Vlad, Beauty and the Beast, Greek Gods, mythical creatures and historical fiction, I love them all!
    • Books with pretty covers: Guilty as charged even though those books haven’t turned out to be as good as I hoped. But still, can’t resist the pretty.
    • Books with Space Opera: I’ve only read a few book set in outer space with a dramatic plot and not as sci-fi as one would expect and I love them. They can be well-written and addictive.
    • Books with AMAZING VILLAINS: There’s no way to know if a book has a good villainous character but once in a while comes a book with a badass one that is not cartoonish and there for the plot. I love villains and they deserve better.
    • Books from bloggers I trust
    • Freebies: I mean, duh!

What makes you instantly want to read a book? Any of the above?


  1. hahaha NetGalley is the best….and sometimes the worst. I request waayyyy too many books because I think they all sound so good. I can’t say no! lol I’m a big sucker for freebies too. I stock up on those sometimes. I’ve been trying to hold off since I have so many books on my Kindle already (over 450) but I still keep grabbing more. Oops… Great list!

  2. Okay, I have NEVER read a space opera! Where does one even start?? I do love books set in space since it’s such a unique thing that I can never experience first hand. Beth Revis’s Across the Universe series is a big favourite of mine. And free books are awesome – or even just cheap books. My local library has a book sale four times a year and books are literally $1 each, which is amazing. I love a good villain, too! Something that makes a villain stand out is great.
