Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book

  1. If the words “queen,” “royalty,” “crown,” “throne,” or “kingdom” are in the title of the book.
  2. Any book that features a fierce, badass heroine.
  3. If the book’s setting takes place in space or another galaxy.
  4. If the book is about witches, covens, or the Salem Witch Trials.
  5. The book features dragons.
  6. The book belongs to the Magical Realism genre.

  9. If the book is a fairy tale retelling, especially “Snow White” and “Beauty and the Beast.” 
  10. Anything in the Steampunk genre.

  1. Hi! I love a fierce heroine for sure! I’m not always into retellings, but I just read a good one of Alice in Wonderland with a badass heroine. It’s called Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles. It was a fun read, sort of like watching an action movie 🙂

  2. Fairy tale retellings and magical realism are two things I really need to read more of. I’ve loved what I’ve read but it hasn’t been nearly enough. I will read anything that mentions the Salem Witch Trials. I’m not sure why I’m so fascinated but I definitely am. Great list!

  3. Dragons and kingdoms usually work for me. 🙂 And the Victorian era is a favorite especially if there’s a supernatural element. I’m trying to try more steampunk…
