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.
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 worlds
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!
