Words and Topics that Make me Pick up a Book

I saw this topic on Top Ten Teusday, hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, and though it is neither a Tuesday nor the current topic, I really wanted to respond to it!


1. Illustrations. 

 2. World War Two setting

 3. Dragons!

 4. Kick-ass powerful female fighters/assasin's

 5. Serious Teen Issues (sexual abuse, mental health, etc.)

 6. Fairytale-esque

 7. Described as having lyrical, poetic writing. Love me some gorgeous prose. 

 8. Excellent Cover Design (maybe I'm shallow. Oh well)

 9. Unique dystopian world
