Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works:
Jana from That Artsy Girl assigns each Tuesday a topic and then posts her top ten list that fits that topic. Anybody is welcome to join and create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. You can put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you!
Todays’s Topic: Things that make me want to read a book
1 The author I have read and liked before
2 The description contains an unusual theme
3 A blogger friend recommendation
5 I read/watched an interview with the author and was intrigued
6 It’s a part of a series that I have already started
7 An interesting and memorable title (in combination with other things, of course)
8 It explores one of my favourite tropes or themes or is set in a place I would like to travel to
9 A sample- if it’s a physical book, I always read a sample.
10 The publisher- especially with children’s books
That’s it…Happy Reading to all of us and lots of interesting books whichever way they come into our lives!
Upcoming Top Ten Tuesday Topics:
May 30: Things That Make Me Instantly NOT Want to Read a Book (what are your immediate turn-offs or dealbreakers when it comes to books?)
June 6: Books or Covers that Feel/Look Like Summer (You can interpret this in a number of ways. Maybe the covers or titles are obviously summer themed, but maybe the feeling the book gives you is all warm and summery. Maybe the book cover colors look summery or the story itself takes place in the summertime. Or maybe the titles you select are favorites that you re-read every summer when you were on break from school.)
June 13: Bookish Wishes (I host this topic twice a year (around Christmas and again in June), and people love it! List the top 10 books you’d love to own and include a link to your wishlist so that people can grant your wish. Make sure you link your wishlist to your mailing address [here’s how to do it on Amazon] or include the email address associated with your ereader in the list description so people know how to get the book to you. After you post, jump around the Linky and grant a wish or two if you’d like. Please don’t feel obligated to send anything to anyone!)

Thank you for stopping by and reading the post! ay!
part of series i read, author I read before, synopsis and recommendation from friends are also on my list.
Great list, Toni. I agree with all of these. I am a cover lover, so that is a biggie for me, but author or series I love are top of my list.
