Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Broke and Bookish. Each week, a new list topic is posted, and book bloggers fill in their choices. This week's topic is "Top Ten Words/Topics that Instantly Make Me Pick Up a Book."
My Top Ten:
1. Fairytales. *squeal* I'm obsessed with fairytales, and there are no words to express the amount of love I have for fairytale retellings.
2. Mythology. Be it Greek, Norse, or Celtic mythology, I'm a sucker for anything that even mentions mythology. Definitely one of my favorite things to read about.
3. Time travel. Thanks to my obsession with Doctor Who, I'm crazy about time travel. We totally need more time travel YA books out there.
4. Alternate realities/parallel worlds. I find alternate worlds (like in Kasie West's Pivot Point) to be completely fascinating.
5. Steampunk. I'm crazy about all things steampunk. It's so different from anything I've ever read.
6. Historical fantasy. This is probably my all-time favorite sub-genre. I love it when the story is set in historical times and has a dash of magic in it.
7. Adorkable. This may sound strange, but whenever I hear the word "adorkable" in a book summary, I know I have to read it. A great example is Leah Rae Miller's The Summer I Became a Nerd - so can't wait to read it!
8. Unreliable narrator. I love psychological stories that have an unreliable narrator. A couple that I loved are The Evolution of Mara Dyer and 17 & Gone.
9. Aliens. I have an insane love for aliens, probably because of Jennifer L. Armentrout's fabulous Lux series. I haven't read many other alien books that I've enjoyed, but I love the idea!
10. Snarky. So I looove books that have snarky main characters. Whenever I read a summary that says the story is full of snark, humor, sarcasm, etc., I KNOW I have to read it!
