TTT - topics that make me pick up a book

I decided I’m going to start participating in the Top Ten Tuesday posts at The Broke and the Bookish. Books are good. Lists are good. So this should be good (I hope)!

Today’s theme – Top ten words/topics that instantly make me buy/pick up a book (with an example)
1. London.
The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)
2. Cooking/Eating.
Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly
3. Strong/empowered/interesting women.
Front Row at the White House : My Life and Times
4. Travel.
Notes from a Small Island
5. History.
His Excellency: George Washington
6. Eco friendly.
Sara Snow's Fresh Living: The Essential Room-by-Room Guide to a Greener, Healthier Family and Home
7. Gardening.
The $64 Tomato: How One Man Nearly Lost His Sanity, Spent a Fortune, and Endured an Existential Crisis in the Quest for the Perfect Garden
8. Memoir.
Bitter is the New Black
9. Politics.
The Girls in the Van: A Reporter's Diary of the Campaign Trail
10. Supernatural characters (witches/wizards, vampires, zombies.)
Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1)


  1. I have The Name of the Star on my list too....because it has both ghosts and serial killers! London is certainly an added bonus. http://wp.me/pzUn5-1uw

    1. Yes, I didn't even think about the ghost factor - that adds it to the supernatural category too :)

  2. New follower! I tend to like books set in London too. Though the ones I've read that are set there are usually classics.

    1. You can't beat a good classic set in London!
