Top Ten Tuesday: Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book


This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week bloggers share a list of books for the prompt given. So hopefully I'll have a new list to share with you all each week!

This Week's Topic: Top Ten Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book

Ooooh, this one is fun! There are a lot of topics that make me super happy when I read books about them, so I'll be more likely to pick up other books about the same topic. Here are some subjects that are my favorites, along with the books I quite enjoyed/own with the intention of reading because of it...


1. Baking/In Bakeries


2. Clubs/Societies


3. Sports


4. Knitting


5. Paris


6. Reading/Books/In Bookstores


7. Travel


8. Cooking/In Restaurants 


9. ANY historical romances 


10. Retellings/literary references

  13. I should definitely read more books set in/revolving around book stores! And I agree, there are certain cities I'm drawn to reading about ^^ Apart from Paris that's Prague, San Francisco, London, and Tokyo for me. Great list, I'll check out the 24-hour-bookstore one now! Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

  22. I agree with seven of the things you've listed here! =D I had an Aha moment when I read Heidi Betts. I read that series a couple of years ago! Darn that I only borrowed them at the library :( I don't have my own copy. I'm feeling a bit nostalgic now... lol!
