Welcome to another day of Top Ten Tuesday! TTT is a bookish meemee hosted by The Broke and the Bookish in which every week bloggers are given a set topic and and then list their top ten (or near enough) of that topic.
This weeks topic is “Things that will make me want to instantly want to read a book”.
Every time a Japanese horror is translated into English, I’ve got to have it! If I find one on a shelf that I haven’t read before it’s nearly an instant pickup. There’s just something about the subtle, dark and creepy horror the Japanese use that keeps me entertained.
More appropriately, physics, but I’ll just bundle it all up into science for now. I’m a complete nerd for physics and anything pertaining to multiverse, alternate universes, bubble-verse, string theories, chaos theory, and everything in between.
Depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, PTSD; all ‘disorders’ that families prefer to keep hidden. Up until recent years. Now people are stepping up and talking about their illnesses, making it okay to be sick and get help for it. Maybe with a few more of these books people will stop calling someone with depression ‘lazy’, or tell a bipolar they need to get their hormones straight.
Sicking-ly Sweet Romance
These are the guilty pleasure books of mine. They probably melt brain cells just by looking at the covers, take just a couple of hours or so to read cover to cover, and the plot was probably made up as the author got the main characters together. Don’t care. It’s a perfect sick day/lazy day book.
Sometimes I like my books the same way I like my music; from independent artists. There’s a lot of struggle going in to finding the diamond in the rough, but then you have this whole new list of authors and books to file through. Overwhelming and exciting!
All the RAGE! Books
If you read my blog, you know I despise The Hunger Games and I’m not too fond of many of the books that are ‘in fashion’. But I do have a 14 year old niece and have practically adopted two of her friends, so I have to keep up with what they read. Some might say this isn’t what I want to read, but it is. It might not fit my taste, I might not like the content, but I enjoy talking with my niece and her friends about the books afterward. May the odds be in my favor that they get better at picking out books.
