August 8th topic: Top 5 Buzzword that make me WANT to read a book


Ugly Cry

I must be a masochist but a good cry is cleansing. I love being submerged in emotions so completely that I forget the world. After a tear jerker read I feel exhausted yet more balanced. I think this is my own therapy. An outlet to the day to day frustrations. I often sport the panda look and it’s slightly embarrassing in public transportations. You want a good cry? Try these :

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma


A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tilie Cole


Full Tilt by Emma Scott



Kickass Heroine

I can’t stand weak or doormat heroines. Being badass does not always mean kicking behinds or having amazing fighting skills. It can mean being smart and strong. Making up for a lack of physical strength with witts and intelligence. Like:

Celaena Sardothien




Emma Carstairs









Broken heroes

I love flawed heroes. The one that have either been rejected, maybe seen as monsters or who are differents. I think like many women I want to be the one to heal them and make them whole.
Broken heroes:








Twists and turns, unexpected plot

I love being surprised. Be it in a mystery with a killer I never guesses or about a story that was so different from what I thought. Books filled with twists and turns but not loosing the reader or being far fetched.

Mysteries: One of Us Is Lying or Nerve Damage.

Appearances are deceiving: Black Lies


Convoluted but brilliant plots: Blood Bound series and Nine Minutes series.


Childhood romance

I love the idea of finding your true love when you’re a kid. What you were waiting for was just under your nose.
Childhood love stories:

The Boy Who Sneaks in my Mindow Bedroom


The Mason List

A Thousand Boy Kisses again


The Sweet Gum Tree.


And you what are your insta click buzz words?

  1. The list of your “ugly cry books” are my favorites!!!! Oh yeah, it’s my guilty pleasure. I hate but can’t resist them!
    I agree with all of the above. OMG, we both really have the same taste in books. I love almost all the books in this list. ❀️
    Awesome feature/meme, Sophie.

  2. Great meme! I agree with you, especially childhood romance. I wasn’t really a child when I met my husband but I was 18 when we met, 19 when we married and we’ve been married for 22 years! I love a good childhood romance…

    1. Oooh yes it’s nearly a childhood romance πŸ˜‰ Thank you Trisy! The meme is all thanks to Shanah

  3. Unexpected and unconventional plots are my kryptonite too. Black Lies is a prime example. If I hear someone say that you need to go in blind, then I’m one-clicking that book, end of story!

  4. Oh man! I agree with all of the above!! A good cry is so cleansing for the soul!! Kick-ass heroines are AWESOME!! And broken heroes are so romantic and intriguing!!

    LOVE the top graphic btw!

    1. haha I knew you would! I remembered you telling us you loved retro art and pin ups when I chose this one πŸ˜‰ I love that kind of art too. But honestly I just love art and beautiful graphics in general LOL
