Top Ten Tuesday - Reeling Me In

This meme is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish

These are ten things that will make me instantly want to buy a book. These aren't in any order really as any of these will make me want to read a book. 

10) Vampires
I know, I know. This probably has a lot of you rolling your eyes and thinking the vampire thing is so over. It will never be over for me. I LOVE vampires. It's still my dream to be one... don't know how that will work because they aren't real but hey, I'm holding on for hope!

9) Sarah J Mass
If she writes it, I'm buying it. No ifs and/or buts. I will buy it and there is a 98% chance that I will love it. 

8) Asia
I love Asia! Japan, Korea, Singapore, China... any books set in Asia will pull me in. I love anything I can get my hands on from these wonderful places. 

7) Gothic/Dark Book Cover
Yep. I love dark and gothic book covers. I have stopped dead in a book store once just because out of the corner of my eyes I saw this book with a girl in a long black dress. It was dark and gothic and I bought it. 

6) Controversial Books
Yes, I'm that person. If someone says something about a book and then people are trying to censor it. I will go out and read that book. It only pulls me in more. I guess it's my inner rebel. I've also always been a free thinker and won't let anyone sway my idea and opinions.  I don't honestly know why but it just makes me want to read it more. 

5) Romance
I love romance. I don't generally like it when it's the whole plot but in order for me to want to even read the book, it has to have romance or I won't even pick it up.

4) Books from other Countries 
I love when books get translated from other countries and come out in English. It's so cool to be able to read these kinds of books and I love finding them.

3) Magic
This is also something I love. Magic/powers/gifts these things all add another level to a book in my eyes and I love that fact. It just ups the stakes and it's also harder for me to predict the plot is magic is involved because anything could happen.

2) High Fantasy 
I love these kinds of books as they really take me out of this reality and this world. Which is the whole reason I read so this really makes me happy.

1)  Art Style (Manga Only)
So I love manga as well and thought I would share the one thing that pulls me in when it comes to manga. Art style. If the art doesn't gel with me, I won't even pick it up, no matter the plot. I will just pass on it.
