Top Ten Tuesday -- Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make Me Pick Up or Buy A Book!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at my other blog, The Broke and the Bookish.


Love a character that can doll out a lot of snark.


You know that a character is going to be interesting if they're curious.


I'm quirky, I like my books being quirky. A fun, quirky character is irresistible. Luna Lovegood anyone? 

Theatre/ Music

Anytime a book mentions theatre, or Broadway or performing, I pick it up immediately! My love for music and theatre attracts me to any book that talks about it.


I suffer delight in a serious case of wanderlust.  I love to travel, and traveling through books is almost as good.


I'm a hopeless Anglophile. A book immediately becomes 10x more interesting if it takes place anywhere in Europe.

New York

I love New York. Spent a week there last summer. I was running a show on 42nd street, seeing shows, eating all the best food... I loved every minute of it. NYC compltely stole my heart. I want to go back! But it's expensive, so I visit it through books instead.


I LOVE fantasy novels. Harry Potter is, and will always be, my favorite series. Anything with a touch of magic will draw me in.

Time Travel

Doctor Who is among my favorite TV shows, and I am constantly on the lookout for more books involving time travel. 


If I see a book described as being 'beloved' I have to find out for myself why it is so loved and how it has affected so many people.

Okay! Your turn! What is on your list? Do we have any in common??

Jennifer Lawrence 

At least for a week. Then my summer classes start, but those are all online and easy.

I have a stack of books ready and 5 seasons of Gilmore Girls on DVD to watch. I am SO ready for this summer to start.

So this will be me for the next several weeks.

It also means that my poor blog is actually going to get some attention. I've read some amazing books lately that I'm dying to review and I'm seeing The Secret Garden this Saturday which I'll probably do a review for.

Anyone else finished with finals and ready to relax and read for fun?
