Top five subjects that will make me want to read a book

There are some subjects that make me love a book, without having read it yet. With this post I link up with the weekly meme Top Ten Tuesday (of last week, I know…), created by The Broke and The Bookish.

1. BooksMr. Penumbra's 24-Houre Bookstore
This won’t be a surprise, but I love to read about characters who are bookworms like me. Books with the words ‘library’, ‘bookstore’ or ‘book’ in the title will definitively get a place on my TBR-list.

2. Magic schools
As a true Harry Potter-fan I cannot withstand books about magic schools. Stories about magic are good, books with characters learning to do magic are even better!

3. Parallel universes
I am fond of books in which characters can travel between our own world and another magical world. It gives books a sense of realism I like. It’s also interesting to read about the variety of objects that are used to go to parallel universes: from a wardrobe in The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis to a mirror in Reckless by Cornelia Funke.

4. The future of the earth
After reading Exodus by Julie Bertagna I developed an interest for books set around the year 2100. It is fascinating to read how our future will look like. Especially books that show the consequences of climate change have my interest.

5. Unique fantasy worldsThe Glass Sentence
Reading about worlds that are completely different than our own is fantastic! I just love it when a writer came up with a world I would have never imagined by myself.  Good world-building is essential for this kind of books, but if it is done well I’m hooked!

  1. I love that the subject on the top of your list is books about books, because I feel the same way! I buy books all the time just because they have the word “book” or “bookshop” or something similar to that in the title.

  2. Great list! I definitely agree with unique fantasy worlds, I did “book turn offs” and on my list I had lack of world building and overused plots which I find too many books have unfortunately. I also really love “future of Earth” books too! 🙂
