Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today is all about WHY we pick up certain books. And honestly, I could say because someone I trust recommended it to me or because I read the blurb and it sounds nice or because of a pretty cover. But mostly, the reason why is VERY SIMPLE and can be boiled down to a few words. So I checked a few of the most recent books I read and specified the exact reason or wording why I decided to pick them up. And turns out, I’m a simple woman with simple, predictable tastes. (and what-do-you-know, enemies-to-lovers is a pretty recurrent theme. Nobody saw that coming.)
Here they are:
Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon: Contemporary Beauty and the Beast retelling
Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda meets Grease
Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: Found family of misfits. In space.
The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa: Enemies-to-lovers
The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller: Slytherin romance, enemies-to-lovers
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas: Sarah J. Maas
Seven Deadly Shadows by Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani: Kitsunes and shinigami
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord: Pen pal romance over Twitter and enemies-to-lovers
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: Leigh Bardugo
The A.I. Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole: hot A.I. next door
Druid Vices and a Vodka by Annette Marie: Annette Marie
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin: Enemies-to-lovers
What makes you pick up a book? Do we have some reasons in common?
