For Today’s Top Ten Tuesday, I’m talking about 10 Things that make me instantly want to read a certain book. Of course, I have my favorite genres which include historical fiction, uplit (with substantial story lines), narrative nonfiction, an occasional women’s fiction, literary fiction, and selected memoirs and biographies. However, what causes me to pick up a certain book?
