It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday!!! For those of you who don’t know, Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish! This week we’re featuring 10 Things That Make Us Read A Book Instantly! I may have strayed a bit from the topic and featured some things that make me purchase a book instantly rather than read it instantly, but I think it’s still close enough to the original topic! Without further ado, here are some things that instantly make me pick up a new read!
I know. I’m a terrible human that judges books by their covers. Listen, I can’t help it okay? I’m a designer by trade and I just can’t help but appreciate when a book has a beautiful cover. I don’t know if beautiful covers get me to instantly read a book per se, but they definitely get me to instantly buy one.
Who doesn’t love a good synopsis? 9 times out of 10, a synopsis will get me to pick up a book faster than the front cover will. The cover grabs me, but the synopsis is what gets me to stay.
Written by Shaun David Hutchinson
Yup. It is a 100% guarantee that if Shaun David Hutchinson’s name is on the front cover of a book, I am instantly going to read it.
I’m one of those people that tries their hardest to read the book before they watch the show/movie. So, if a movie I really want to see is about to be released, I’m liable to pick up the book first!
Nothing gets me to pick up a book faster than when it’s on sale.
Written by Jeff Zentner
Just like with Shaun David Hutchinson above, if a book is written by Jeff Zentner, I am definitely picking it up the minute it hits shelves.
Best Friend Recommends
I have a few lovely best friends that love reading and I trust their opinions over anything. If one of my besties tells me I need to read a book, I probably really do need to read that book.
Another aesthetic pleasure of mine. Deckle edges are more likely to get me to purchase a book than regular clean-cut edges.
Written by Rick Remender
It honestly doesn’t matter what the plot is, if Rick Remender wrote it…I”m reading it. Rick Remender is my favourite comic book writer of all time and I will instantly devour anything he writes.
The Hype Is Real
I try not to give into the hype too often, but every once in a while a book comes along that everyone and their dog is talking about. I hate spoilers so naturally I’m going to want to read the book as soon as possible.
There you have it! The top ten things that will make me read/pick up a book instantly! What makes you read a book right away?
Thank you for reading!
