Welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday post!
Top Ten Tuesday an original feature that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Essentially, for each week the list is a new topic and the feature is designed to share lists with other bookish folks! I love reading these posts and it’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers, so I’m taking it on!!
Keep reading to see what the top ten things make me instantly want to read a book!
1. “Ride or Die” Authors:
I have a few authors that I will read their book regardless of the content or how crowded my bookshelves are. Truly, these authors could write a series of pizza toppings that they enjoy and I would purchase that list. I. am. such. a. sucker.
If Tess Gerritsen writes it? Sign me up!
If Ania Ahlborn writes it? Yup!
If Jodi Picoult writes it? Yes, Please!
If Emily Giffen writes it? It’s already in my Amazon cart
Peter Swanson, Hollie Overton, Josh Malerman….someone stop me!!!
2. Blogger Recommendation
If I am seeing it consistently (or if my blogger friends are talking about) then I have to have it. Call it a serious case of FOMO…
3. If it is written by a Canadian author
I have a special place in my heart for Canadian Literature. If I find out the author is Canadian, I usually end up buying the book. I have to support my fellow Canadians!
4. If there is lots of hype
Again, call it a serious case of FOMO, but as soon as a book has significant hype around it, I will fall for that hook line and sinker. I don’t often share the same views, but I don’t want to miss out on the conversation.
5. If it is going to be adapted
Similar to the hype, if a book is going to be adapted into a film or television show, I have to read the book ASAP. I would never want to go into a movie or T.V show without having read the book first.
Because I am a glutton for punishment.
I have an issue with all page to screen adaptations. Nothing is ever as good as the book. Therefore, I need to read the book first so I can be riled up and whisper to my fiance throughout our viewing how much better the book was.
6. If it is published by Bookouture
Bookouture has some stellar fiction that they publish; from crime thrillers to feel good comedies, I have never been disappointed with a book I have read from them.
7. If it is published by Orenda
Orenda is another publishing house that published absolute gold. I never have any issues diving into their books and being thoroughly entertained.
8. If it is a psychological thriller
Genre wise? If it is being marketed as a psychological thriller, I would instantly have to read it.
9. If I read other books in that particular series
I cannot read things out of order (THE STRUGGLE IS REAL) and I don’t like leaving things unfinished, so if I pick up one book from a series, rest be assured I would have to read them all.
10. I am trying to be a literary rebel
I find myself doing this one often. When I am trying to be a literary rebel, I choose books I wouldn’t normally read just because I FEEL LIKE IT! I don’t usually read romance, but if I see one on a shelf, I may just buy it because I want something different.
I have been doing this a lot lately!
Well there ya have it, the completely logical reasons that will make me instantly want to read a book!
