Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I add a lot of books to my TBR at the drop of a hat. This week’s topic is all about those special things about a book that cause me to add them a bit faster the normal.
Ever since I fell in love with Sarah Addison Allen I’ve been mad for more magical realism stories. I love how magical realism can be found in the widest of genres.
If there is a single mention of a bakery, a kitchen, or a cupcake then you bet your ass I’ll be adding it.
Stories with time travel make up a majority of my favorite books.
Southern Gothic/Country Noir
If there’s a trailer on the cover or some mention of cooking meth in a basement, I’ll probably want to read it.
Tudors (or Philippa Gregory, really)
There’s just something about those crazy royals that I thoroughly enjoy reading about.
I’m a huge fan of anything post-apocalyptic but add in zombies and I will absolutely be reading it.
I read a lot of horror but nothing freaks me out quite like a good ghost story.
Similar to my obsession with the Tudors. Apparently, I like reading about snooty rich people.
Finding random relics that link to some mysterious story from the past? I’m all ears.
Plagues and Pandemics
Weird, right? I don’t know what it is about this subject matter but it makes me crazy obsessed.
