Top Ten Tuesday: April 2nd, 2019: What makes me pick up a book.

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:

She assigns each Tuesday a topic and then posts her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information


Eye Catching Cover

Purple Death by [Porter, Brian L.]
Guardian by [Rodgers, S.B.]
Ephemeral (The Countenance Angels Trilogy Book 1) by [Moore, Addison]

So, this is the most obvious choice. This is the a huge reason why I have such a large TBR pile….sigh. Because I liked the covers.


Have Read the Author Before

Loving the Marquess (Landing a Lord Book 1) by [Medeiros, Suzanna]

The Affiliate (Ascension Book 1) by [Linde, K.A]
Itsy Bitsy Spider (Emma Frost Book 1) by [Rose, Willow]

Having read previous books by the author is also a huge reason why I pick up books. Once I like an author, I stick with them.


Is book that no one seems to be reading or taking much notice of

The Needle House: A gripping DS Lasser crime thriller. (The DS Lasser Series Book 1) by [Roughley, Robin]
The Day Human Prince by [McMichael, B. Kristin]
Stalking Jack: The Hunt Begins... (Madeline Donovan Mysteries Book 1) by [Kent, Madison]

I like reading books that aren’t that well known. If I don’t know the author, I get the book.


It’s a freebie

From The Wreckage by [Miller, Michele G]
Hollywood Assassin: A Psychological Suspense Thriller Book 1 (A Hollywood Alphabet Series Thriller) by [Kelly, M.Z.]
Saving Liam by [Denman, DP]

I love freebies. So, I snap them up. I get them wherever I can. Author’s newsletter, Instafreebie, Prolific Works, Amazon and NetGalley.


That’s my Top Ten (well Top Four). Let me know whatcha think!!

    1. I used to miss books that way too. I decided to throw caution to the wind and just start getting them (the Kindle in this case is a Godsend!!). There are still duds but for the most part, I have found some fantastic new authors to read.
