Things That Make Me Instantly Want to Read a Book – Top Ten Tuesday!

Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a great week so far. This weeks TTT prompt was ‘things that make me instantly want to read a book’ and I’ve decided to showcase ten things that will do just that, as well as showing the books that I’ve loved/am excited for that fit into those categories. I feel like, since becoming a blogger, I have become a lot better at knowing whether I will enjoy a book or not, I know what tropes to look out for, what settings, and authors and I have gotten slightly better at not just being drawn in by a pretty cover, although it still happens from time to time, but the below are ones that never really let me down, and the books I’ve included are all time favourites of mine with a few anticipated releases thrown in for good measure. If you want to learn anything more about the books, simply click on the cover to be taken to the goodreads page.

Top Ten Tuesday is run by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl and you should definitely go give her blog some love.
