Hi there everyone!
It’s time again for Top Ten Tuesday! Every week the wonderful people at The Broke and Bookish post a theme to create our lists by. This week the theme is qualities that will instantly make me pick up a book. I have a few that will guarantee I pick up your book. Chances are that if I pick up a book with some of these qualities I’m going to enjoy it! (I’ve done extensive “research” on this topic…)
1. Girls In Pretty Gowns.
I just LOVE pretty gowns and want to wear them. I also generally enjoy books with this type of cover.
2. Romance Included.
Not romance novels, but novels with some romance in them. Le sigh…
3. Fairy Tales.
Yes. I will most likely pick up the book if its a retold fairy tale. Fairy tales are just so classic and I love the magic of them.
4. Female Main Characters.
I just have a hard time connecting to male main characters so it’s always a tough sell for me.
If your book is set in the UK in some way…historical, contemporary, fantasy whatever. I want it. I am 100% Anglophile.
6. Boarding Schools.
I have always loved boarding school books. Boarding schools just seem so fun without your parents watching you all the time!
7. Jane Austen Related.
If your book relates to Jane Austen because it’s a retelling or something similar then I’m probably going to pick it up.
8. Amish People.
I’m just so intrigued by their community and culture! I want to read about them!
9. Husband Appeal.
If you’re book has qualities that both my husband and I will like, then the chances that I’ll pick up your book increase greatly. I’m not sure what those qualities are though…murder (judging by the three books above)?!
10. Audiobooks Narrated with a British Accent.
Yup. I’m 100% Anglophile.
So there you have it. The qualities that will instantly make me pick up a book…all laid out in front of you. Some one should write one book to rule them all….one that fits all of my favorite things! haha
What book qualities always entice you to read? Thanks for visiting!
