Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish this weeks topic is about the words and phrases that make me instantly want to read a book. This one was a pretty easy one for me and while this post is pretty bare bones (sorry!!) that’s only because I tossed it together real quick over my lunch break. 🙂
1. Letters from unknown senders
This is one of my most favorite tropes and one that will instantly get me to pick up a book. I love the letter/email exchange and the not knowing who is sending. Just makes me swoon every time.
Notable reads: Letters to the Lost by Bridgid Kemmerer, Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum, PS I Like You by Kasie West, and Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett.
2. Second Chance at Love
Another favorite trope! I love a good redemption story!
Notable read: Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean
3. Quickie Marriage/Vegas Wedding
Don’t know what it is about this one but I do adore the vegas wedding style book. Its fun watching two people who never thought the other would be their match come together, which leads me into my next favorite surefire thing to make me pick up a book.
Notable reads: Accidentally Married on Purpose by Rachel Harris // Lick by Kylie Scott
4. Opposites attract
Can you say TENSION!!! Oh I just love the push and pull when two people who are so opposite from each other meet up in a story.
5. Friend of a sibling
Oh that forbidden sort of love is just oh so sweet. Where the main characters try to stay away because of a promise made to sibling or because they really should fall for their BFFs little sister but yet can’t help doing so.
6. Road Trip!!!
This one pretty much goes without saying if you know anything about me. I love to travel and when I can’t travel myself then the next best thing is to travel in a book. And one super fun way to do that is with a road trip!!
Ok…so right now I can only think of six sure fire things that will make me immediately pick up a book. I am sure that there are some others that I’ll be kicking myself on later and if I think of one I’ll come back and update. But for now, if you know of any books that fit any of these categories (or any combination of them) them PLEASE FOR THAT IS HOLY LET ME KNOW!!!!!
