I normally pick up a book for a couple of reasons, but there are some things that will make me want to pick up a book instantly. And today that is what I am going to talk about. Like always these are in no particular order.
Bad Boy: If a book has a bad boy there is a very high chance that I am going to pick it up. I don’t know what it is. I love that they can have this tough exterior, but on the inside, they are soft and just fall in love. I think my love for bad boys has to come from me reading lots of ‘bad boy’ stories on Wattpad. I can’t help it.
Friends to Lovers: Again Wattpad has a lot of influence of my contemporary reads. And this trope just reels me right in. I love that a pair can already have this connection and then slowly things start to change and I love seeing them fall in love.
Hate to Love: This is the opposite of the above, but it’s just as much fun. I love how a couple can hate each other so much. But underlining everything, they are like each other and can connect over things they didn’t think that they could.
Magic: I didn’t hesitate to add this one to my list. I’ve always loved magic in any form and there is a very high chance that I will pick up a book instantly because it features magic. From witches to simply elemental powers, I love it all.
Bad Ass Protagonist: If the female protagonists is up there fighting, I am so for it. I think that is why I love Vampire Academy so much. I want more and more books like this. We need no men to fight for us!
Sports: I don’t know if you guys know this but I love sports. Well, I like to watch sports. I can’t play all too well. If you follow me on twitter then you know AFL season is back and I so ready. So that is why if a book has some sort of sport attached it to, I will mostly likely want to instantly pick it up.
Cassandra Clare: I don’t think I need to explain much here, if Cassandra Clare has written the book then I am going to read it, basically instantly. In saying that check out my Infernal Devices read-a-long that starts this month
Protagonist with a Disability…or close to the protagonist: At the start of the year I spoke about my struggle with Chronic Pain and because of that and other medical conditions I have, I love reading books with disabilities. If a book features a protagonist with a disability or someone from their family, I will want to instantly pick it up.
Family Orientated: I am a very family orientated person. I am the oldest of 3 siblings, and the oldest of all my 1st cousins. I love caring for them. So when a book has a very close family, I will love it. You don’t see it much in YA and I really want more of it. I love more love with families, more caring.
Best Friends Brother/Brothers Best Friend: Yes, this is on my list. Like, how could it not be here? It’s adorable and cute and just makes me squeal. I love the interaction, the outcomes, the reactions. It’s just a ride.
