Top Five Tuesdaaaay! Weeeee! Always so much fun, and as always, check out Bionic Book Worm’s post because she’s just the coolest!
Top five buzzwords that make me want to read a book.
Ah! I have to admit I’m intimidated by this!
So my main genre that I love is YA Fantasy with some Sci Fi, dystopian, some romance, some contemporary, so I’m gonna go with some buzzwords that apply to the genre that I already love.
This word in an of itself already have my interest. When this word is combined with any of the following I’m totally in:
- Sandwich (I have yet to find a book about sandwich magic, but I would be totally down for this. Imagine! Being able to perform magical spells after you eat sandwiches…I think I’m on to something…)
Magic is a huge interest for me because it’s not real and I love being swept up in the originality of different magic. Think about it. Magic can be systematic and traditional like Harry Potter with spells and wands and all that, or it can be blood magic that is specific to only a few people like Shades of Magic, or it could be magic that you’re born with because of your race/species/creature type/financial status/whatever! Magic is just fun and I love it. Plus when it’s combined with something badass like revenge…oh man. You know it’s gonna be epic.
Kill/Murder/Promise of violence
Okay I know what you’re thinking. Seriously? Why do you love the violence so much? Um. Are you serious? Violence is one of my fave things about fantasy and dystopian stories! But I can only handle so much of it before the gore becomes to much and I want to cringe and hide in a pantry.
I like my characters to be awesome and fight and be able to defend themselves!
This can relate to a number of different things. Sacrificing animals to blood magic, MCs making sacrifices in their personal lives for the greater good, sacrificing relationships, money, whatever. I like my characters to really have to go through some drama and question who they are and what the point of their life is and I like them to go through alot of changes. “Sacrifice” speaks that to me.
On the other side of killing people, blood magic and sacrifice, I also like stories that are funny! Fun adventures with wit and humor and hopefully snarky sarcastic comments. Sounds amazing.
Mention of some kind of awesome creature
I can’t even say specifically what kind of creature this is because there are so many! This can include but not limited to:
- Bat babies
I’m not a huge fan of vampires and mermaids. That may seriously be a buzzword that turns me completely off to a book. But I like different creatures and these crazy worlds that they live in! If you can’t tell by this list, fantasy is definitely my favorite hahaha.
Hope you enjoyed this Top Five Tuesday! What are buzzwords that make you want to read a book?! What are some good ones that I haven’t thought of!
Thanks for reading!
