Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s topic is things that make me instantly want to read a book. I made this list and when it was done, I discovered I made a very similar post way back in 2019 – and lo and behold my tastes are pretty much still exactly the same. Only the books have updated a bit with newer releases in there. Oh well, at least I’m consistent, right?
If it’s written by one of my favorite auto-buy authors
There are a few authors I love so much, I’d read their grocery lists if they’d publish them. So if they release a new book, it’s automatically on my want-to-read list – even if I have no idea what it’s about yet.
If it contains one of my favorite tropes
I love many tropes, but these four are the ones I can read over and over and over again:
- fake dating
- found family
- penpal romance
If it is a slow-burn romance (but not too slow either)
I love a good slow-burn. I love the anticipation building up and swooning and sighing over hands brushing and fingers touching. That said, I’m also quite impatient so it is a fine line 😉
If it’s beloved by my blogger friends
Some books are not on my radar initially, but when I see multiple blogger friends raving about a certain book again and again and again – my interest is peaked. And usually, I end up loving those books too!
