ttt: top ten words/topics that make me pick up a book


This week's Top Ten Tuesday on the Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten Words or Topics That Make You Pick Up a Book.

While a good title/cover usually first attracts me to a book, when I skim through the blurb, I'm always hoping to see one of the words/topics below. Of course some books have a different sort of appeal, but by and large, I could put the books I read into one of the follow categories:


TOP TEN TUESDAY:
Top Ten Words/Topics That Make Me Pick Up a Book

1. Victorian/Edwardian (or really, any year between 1600 and 1950)



2. Whimsical/Magical/Enchanting



3. Funny



4. Dark



5. Mystery/Twist/Secret



6. Boarding School/College



7. Speculative Fiction/Science Fiction/Dystopian



8. Britain/France (anywhere cool really, but those two stick out)



9. Magical Realism



10. Playing with Time



What words/topics make you pick up a book?

  2. Great list! Completely agree with your dark, funny, and England/France categories. I have boarding school as one of mine, too. I can't get enough.
