Today's topic is - Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book
This is a little hard, as it's normally the cover of a book that grabs my attention and makes me pick up a book first. However, these are topics I love to read about.
Dystopian - I love dystopian books. Even though there seems to be a common theme with them I haven't read one that I hate.
Realistic/True Stories - I love true stories, or stories based around realistic events.
Horror - I have always loved horror stories. I like reading things that give me the creeps.
Robots/Cyborgs/Reanimation of humans - Anything along those lines and similar sci fi type books I find really interesting.
Fairytales & Retellings - I have only read a few and those I've read, I've really enjoyed.
Contemporary - I have recently taken to contemporary books and have been loving them.
Virus/Parasite - Human population succumbing to a virus; viruses that change people into killing machines; parasites controlling humans, any and all of that variety. I'm intrigued.
Paranormal - including, but not limited too vampires, zombies, aliens etc. because they are interesting.
Humour - Who doesn't like to laugh, and with all the horrible type topics I normally read, this can be a nice change.
Survival - I like anything where the characters are fighting for survival.
Most of these overlap each other in books which is fine by me. =) I'm sure I've missed something.
Edit: I missed a big one that I love - Parallel universes! I remembered when I visited Jamie's post at The Perpetual Page Turner.
That's my Top Ten for the week. I look forward to seeing what all your choices are so don't forget to leave a comment and link to your Top Ten. =)
