Topic:  Things That Will Make Me Instantly Want To Read A Book

There aren’t many things that make me instantly want to read a book, but there are enough things that have me grabbing for my wallet or a library card.

1. Has a quote from an author I love on it

I discovered that I will buy anything that has a quote from Melina Marchetta on it. Or if John Marsden mentions a book/author I will read them.

2.  If it’s by an author I love

On that same note, if an author I love has a new book out, I am hunting down a copy as soon as possible.

3. Is a fairytale retelling

I am a sucker for fairytale retellings, whether it is Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Princess and the Pea. All of them are divine.

4. Is a Shakespeare retelling

These are rarer in terms of what I have actually read, but I have a long TBR list of Shakespeare retellings I plan to get to one day.

5. If there is a movie coming out

I am a big fan of reading the book before the movie. So much so I only just got around to reading The Hunger Games which meant I could finally watch the movies. Books always come first.
