[Top Ten Tues] #6

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme started at Broke & the Bookish.

This weeks Top Ten:
Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book
Kait's Picks:

Contemporary New Adult:
This has quickly become my absolute favorite genre, mostly because of ALL THE FEELS these books give me. I can't stop buying books labeled New Adult!

Bad Boys:
What is it about them? I don't know, but I will almost always buy a book if it features a "bad boy" character.

You know when you read a book about musicians that it's going to be a rough ride. As a bonus, these books usually feature bad boys[read previous topic].

There is so much room for story building in these kinds of books. I love being drawn into a completely different world. 

Multiple POV:
I love knowing the many sides of a story, so when I find a book written this way I get so excited. It amazes me how a author can have so many voices in their head for just one story.
Beth's Picks :
New Adult - YESSSSSSS. Sexy. What ISN'T there to LOVE about New Adult?! Especially being the age that I am now, sometimes I really get sick of the high school scene. It's SO amazing to finally see books around my age(ish).

Paranormal Romance - My first love. No one will ever replace you. Even though I may stray. :)

Contemporary - I'll admit, Until about 7 or 8 months ago, I didn't really give Contemporary's a chance. Now that I have... There is no going back!

Dual POV - Honestly I love seeing the characters different sides to the story. The alternate view on something that happened can be so amazing and just so different from the other character.

Dystopian - Well, who doesn't love an alternate world. The creativity behind these books and everything between the first page to the last... it's always a new adventure!

What's in your Top Ten this week!? 


  1. I forgot New Adult *facepalm* But it seems like we all love dystopian. Also contemporary is perfect for summer :) Great picks girls :)

  8. I had dystopia in My Top Ten but I wish I had thought of the dual POV because I love those books!!!

  9. Dystopian and multiple POV = totally agree!!! Multiple POV adds so much to the depth of a novel sometimes.

  10. Great list! I also love Dystopia and "bad boys". They have an appeal to me ;) Great list!

  11. I've been having a hard time with NA - I think it's just not for me. But big yes to dystopia, post-apocalyptic, and paranormal romance!
