Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is about…impulse buys and I guess it was time the world knew what made me say, “Take my money!” (Oh Tumblr Memes…). Thank you The Broke and The Bookish for creating such fun meme’s, even if it does mean that the world will find out about my bad impulsive buying habits.
This week I will not be doing
Top Ten but Top Five instead. (I’m currently writing two big term papers. That is my excuse.)
TOP FIVE TOPICS THAT INSTANTLY MAKE ME BUY/PICK UP A BOOK
I’ve secretly wanted to be a spy all my life but I lack the skills and um physical fitness needed for that type of job.
2. Thief/Con Artist
I love a good con. This explains my continuing support of the Heist Society Series by Ally Carter and the USA Network TV show, White Collar.
3. Boarding School
I’ve always lived at home and when it was time to go to college, I picked a university that was an hour and a half away from home. I guess I’ve always wanted to move thousands of miles away and see how that is. The only way I can experience that is through books.
4. Setting: Europe
I think Ana and the French Kiss and 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I love those two books. Now I want to go to Europe.
5. Dystopian (Ex: Divergent, The Hunger Games, or The Selection)
I get these moments when all I want to read is dystopian books. I’ve been a fan of dystopian books since I was in middle school. My favorite dystopian novel then was “The Bar Code Tattoo”. I kind of want to re-read now since it has been almost a decade since I last read it.
What are some topics that dissolve your strong will and make you resort to impulsive buying? Come on now… We all have at least one. 😉
