Top Ten Tuesday: Elements of a book that make me go “YAS”

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is: Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book

1) Written by one of my auto-read authors: Sarah Dessen, Morgan Matson, Jennifer E Smith, Marissa Meyer, etc.

2) Pretty cover. Sometimes this doesn’t last past my reading the synopsis, but for at least a brief moment a pretty cover will make me covet a book like nothing else.

3) A good review from a blogger I trust.

4) Fairy tale retelling (I love them all).

5) Steampunk elements.

6) Celebrity romance trope. I don’t know why, but I just love these.

7) Features a road trip. Road trips are so fun and they’re even more fun when you’re not actually stuck in the car for 13 straight hours.

8) Also, any travel basically. I love exploring new places but don’t have the means to actually do it in person. That’s why books are so great!

9) Smart, female protagonists. I love reading books featuring girls who are smart and unapologetic but are also normal.

10) Strong female friendships. There’s nothing more powerful to me than a healthy relationship between two girls. They get each other and don’t start drama with each other over boys.

Do you guys agree with any of these? What are some things that make you instantly say “YAS”?
