Top Ten Tuesday - 80

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish for bloggers who like to make lists about books.

Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make Me Pick Up a Book

1. Road Trip 
I love a good road trip novel! Just the idea of driving around and seeing new places is so exciting. Plus it's a great way to show character development and self-discovery!

2. Europe
I love to travel and would love to tour all of Europe someday. Whenever the characters go abroad, I will read that book!

3. Summer
I am in love with the summer: warm weather, fun, free time. It's the perfect setting for a romance and it's even better if it's at the beach.

4. The Tudors
I love historical fiction but my favorite era is Tudor England! I will read any book set during this time, especially if it's about King Henry and his wives.

5. Mystery
I love mysteries in both books and movies, so I enjoy reading a book where you have to figure out whodunnit! I think I get this from reading a lot of Nancy Drew.

6. Secrets
This probably goes along with "mystery" but I love books in which the character has a secret. I usually fly through the pages in order to figure it out!

7. Romance
I'm a sucker for a little romance in my books, so this will make me more inclined to read it.

8. Action
I hate reading exposition so there better be a lot of dialogue and action occurring so I don't get bored.

9. Swimming
This doesn't occur a whole lot but if a character is a swimmer I will definitely pick up the book. I then usually end up nitpicking everything about it but that's ok!

10. Humor
I love it when contemporary novels have comedy, especially if it's a book by Leila Sales!

Haven't read many books about swimmers either, but I've liked the few I have read. Interesting pick!
