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??


  1. Travel gets me every time, especially to places like New York and Great Britain!

    Here is my list of Books I Can't Pass Up!

  2. Hehe snarky characters are always fun. And I love Great Britain books as well! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. Beloved. That's an interesting concept. I'm also with you on time travel and magic! Great list! :D

  7. LOL. I'm a total Anglophile as well. I agree, if it takes place in England, it's so much more interesting :)

  8. Yay somebody else that loves theatre! (Plus quirky and snarky, but I don't think I've seen another list that mentions theatre so far)

  9. Snarky, inquisitive and quirky should have been on my list, too! And wow, beloved is a unique choice but it makes sense.


You know what? You're brilliant! Thanks so much for commenting, I always reply!
