Random Quote of the Day: “Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.” – Audre Lorde

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Happy Tuesday! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book. As always if you have as much as I do with this post, feel free to link me to your posts! (:

AESTHETICALLY PLEASING COVERS

I think we can all agree that cover lust is a thing, and sometimes we pick up a novel off the shelves just because the cover catches our eyes — and if you say you haven’t thought this before then you are a liar are such a great person.

SOMEONE RECOMMENDS THE BOOK TO ME

Now this doesn’t happen with just anyone — I know a few bloggers here and there that have similar book-tastes to me. When they recommend novels to me, I look into them and usually end up adding it to my TBR. It isn’t an insta-buy, but I do want to read it.

MY FAVORITE AUTHORS BLURBS IT

If I see that Nicola Yoon, John Green, or Jennifer Niven blurbs a novel then there is a 99% chance that I will look into the novel with a 98% chance that I’ll actually buy it. They don’t even have to have a blurb; if they promote it on social media or even mention a novel, you better believe that I am adding it to my TBR.

MENTION OF MENTAL ILLNESS

You guys all know (or should know by now) that I am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge about mental illnesses. Therefore I am drawn to novels that have this aspect, no matter the author or form of illness. I am interested in the different representations of mental illnesses as well.

DIVERSITY

I can’t say that I’ve always went out of my way to find Diverse novels, but now that I have I can’t stop adding them to my TBR! They are so many great ones coming out (or have come out) this 2017 and it makes me super duper excited!!

One day I will continuously reach a list of ten things!! But for now, those are five insta-read situations! I would love to see what makes you want to read a novel, so definitely link me to your posts in the comments! I probably could’ve listed a few more, but my brain is fried. Anyways, Happy Tuesday, again!! 😁

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time…

  2. Great list, pretty covers are my downfall. As someone who has struggled with mental health issues and is training to become a mental health nurse I definitively need to read more mental health related books.

  3. if someone tells me a book is diverse as has accurate rep I’m 100% gonna pick up that book. if someone tells me there is a bisexual or/and biracial mc I’m like YES LOVE ME SOME SELF REP! (in my head, I usually respond with something chill like ‘cool I’ll check it out’)
    whenever I buy books I always try to get the one with the prettiest cover bc I live for the aesthetic
