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.

Magical Realism

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.

Foodie Fiction

If there is a single mention of a bakery, a kitchen, or a cupcake then you bet your ass I’ll be adding it.

Time Travel

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.

Dual Timelines

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.

    I have a ridiculous love for the written word. I read anything and everything: Adult fiction, YA, Middle Grade, even the occasional Non-Fiction.

    When I'm not reading I'm caring for my step-children, drinking obscene amounts of tea and contemplating what life will be like in the impending apocalypse.
