TTT – Things that make me pick up a book

About the meme:

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! The read more about this meme, look at this page!

This week’s meme is things that make me pick up a book, I’m not sure if I should interpret this as like themes in a book, or things that make me physically pick up a book in the bookstore (if that makes sense)

Okay themes that make me pick up a book:

  1. Time travel – I just love this!
  2. Dragons
  3. Spaceships (Especially talking ones, yes I’m thinking Illuminae!)
  4. Heists
  5. Magic schools!

Things that physically make me pick up a book in the bookstore:

  1. Cover – let’s be honest
  2. Author name! (Like, have I heard it before or read before)
  3. Title!
  4. Reviews that I can remember.
  5. Spine (most of the time you see that before the cover of course!)

I have no idea if this was the point of this topic, but this is what you will get :p

Come talk to me!

What makes you pick up a book?

  1. Heists will make me pick up a book EVERY. TIME. Time Travel is hard for me to resist too, though I find it’s more hit or miss depending on how the author handles it! Great lists!

    1. Hahah yes true! But since I love some time travel books so much, I pick a lot of them up anyway

  2. I have a hard time with magic schools since every one I’ve read seems to be a copycat of Hogwarts! It might not be the first magical school in the history of books, but it’s the only one I’ll read about.Happy TTT!

    1. I can see your point hahah! For most of us HP feels as the classics magical school!

  3. Your themes are everything! I love magic schools, they always make you dream and wish you were born a witch or Demi god or something! And it’s true. People say “Don’t judge a book by its cover” but let’s be honest, we all do! Love your answers!

    1. That’s exactly my reason haha! That saying counts for a lot, just not books haha

  4. Dragons! I’m with you there. I’m also terrible for sneaking a peak at a first line to see if it draws me in 😀
