It is Wednesday, which means it’s time for a Top 5 list. This week is about buzz words that get you excited for a book. I didn’t even know I had buzz words that instantly hook me on books, but apparently I do. You can check out the meme hosted by the booktuber, Lainey aka gingereadslainey, on the Goodreads page here.
Fairy Tale Retelling
I love fairy tales of all sorts. Even if it’s the same thing for the millionth time, I am having a difficult time getting bored of it. Well, I do appreciate someone really making it their own and spinning it to an extant where it becomes difficult to recognise the story, but I will be happy with something old fashioned too, as long as it is not falsely advertised.
New Take on Wonderland/Neverland
Seriously, give me anything Alice in Wonderland or Peter Pan related and you have my full attention.
I LOVE THE CIRCUS. I always used to beg my parents to go to the circus as soon as I saw that it was advertised that one was nearby. We went to a couple and it enchanted me each and every time. I haven’t actually read that many books with a circus in it, except for The Night Circus and Water for Elephants (and a children’s book), but I love the idea. So, I am much more inclined to check something out if there is a circus mentioned.
I know that description is necessary, but everything is better in moderation. I just completely tune-out if there is a three-page-long essay on the decorations of a room. I just can’t! I much prefer fast-paced books with witty dialogue (uh, maybe ‘witty’ should have been another one of my buzz words …), where you have to keep up with what’s happening. Then again, I don’t want it to be rushed either. As I said, everything in moderation!
Well, when I read something, I want to feel it too. I am not even sure I care what kind of intense it is. Intense romance or heartbreak or drama or mystery (just not horror … I am not good with scary stuff!). If it is bound to keep me on the edge of my seat for whatever reason, I am happy. I want to feel all the feels, because those are mostly the best stories!
