A weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish :)
This week’s topic is all about those words that you read in a book summary that make you go “OMG give me that book right now, I must read it and I must love it”. AKA topics and things that make you automatically want to buy/read a book. So, in no particular order…
1) Cowboy: If there is a boy in this book that wears plaid shirts, cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, and rides around in a rusty old pickup truck, I WANT IT NOW.
2) Music: If music is involved in the plot even slightly, I know I must read this book. I’ve been a music lover for as long as I can remember, and I always feel that the addition of music to a book makes it just that much more special.
3) Time Travel: Something about time travel is just so interesting to me!
4) Parallel Lives: Again, I don’t know what it is about parallel lives that draws me in, but it just does!
6) Foreign Countries: I’m a sucker for a book that takes place somewhere foreign; France, England, Italy… <3
7) Heaven: If any book has something similar to Gabrielle Zevin’s Elsewhere, count me in!
8) Reincarnation: Especially if it is as well done as it is in My Name is Memory.
9) Falling for an older guy: Don’t know why, I just love it. Maybe because I have a tendency to do so? IDK
10) Princesses: As cheesy as it sounds, I don’t know if I will ever love something as much as I loved the princess diaries series when I was younger.
