T5W: Words That Make Me Buy Books

What time is it? Well it’s Top 5 Wednesday time!

Hi again! and welcome to a wordy Top 5 Wednesday. Today’s topic is Favourite Buzz Word. Buzz words are words that are used to describe books which will pretty much guarantee that I will buy them.

Before we get onto my words of weakness  I would like to mention that Top 5 Wednesday was created over on BookTube by the wonderful Laniey at gingerreadslaniey. Also you can check out the Goodreads page for past and future topics. They are listed in no particular order.


Now onto the words!


#5 Music/Musicians

As a musician it is no surprise that I love books that contain music elements – whether it’s set within the Music Industry or a character loves or plays music. This really combines my two loves and pretty much guarantees that I will spend my money on this book!


#4 Psychological elements (ie. Mental Illness or Group Mentality)

I am fascinated with the mind and how people can differ from one another. I love reading books that explore these psychological elements that makes this character’s life vastly different to my own. Also books about how groups work and cults are ones I love. I will say that I have yet to read a psychological thriller – I think – but I will definitely explore this genre in the future.


#3 ‘Inspired by’/ Retellings

Like most people I love fairy tale retellings, along with myth retellings. These stories are so ingrained in society and how we function as people. I love seeing how authors can interrupt these classic tales and put their modern twist on them. All I can say is thank god this is a popular genre!


#2 Circus/Circus performers

I love the circus – although I’m a bit iffy about clowns. They seems like such exciting places and the whole idea of travelling around the world and having an adventure is amazing. Any book with a circus I will buy!


#1 Plantagenet (Kings)

If you’re new, Hi I’m Dearna and I read a lot of historical fiction; specifically historical fiction about the Plantagenet Monarchy who ruled England during the Middle or Mediaeval Ages. I’m a huge History buff and I will this time era so I will always buy books set in this era.



That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know what your buzz word weaknesses.

Until next time, happy reading!
