Top Ten Tuesday: Descriptive Book Words That I Love

I love the top ten prompt this week! We are to list words or phrases (most likely found in a book description or blurb) that makes us want to buy a book, maybe even right that very moment. Here's a few I like:

Top Ten Words/Phrases That Make Me Want to Buy a Book

1. a haunting and chilling tale
2.  epic... anything
3. a soap opera-y saga
4. the curse of the forbidden love
5. full of quirky humor
6. a magnificant medieval adventure
7. saturated with court intrigue
8. there's a dark and mysterious stranger
9. a rockin and rollin music mash up
10. complicated by a many-layered plot

I could go on....

Can you imagine a book, one book, that would be described by all those words I've listed? Wow. 

What words would be on your list? Write a post and link up over at The Broke and the Bookish!


  1. "Epic" will do it for me too - and it makes me reach for tea because I know I'll be settling in with the book for a while :-)

  3. love your list, and a book blurb with all those words would describe a book that is . . . well, epic! kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  4. Epic and saga get me every time!

  5. Wow! You should be a blurb writer -- those are some very compelling words :) And I agree, epic and saga are two I cannot resist.

  6. Quirky, smart humor is the best. I hate slap stick, but if you give me an author's that equally humorous, intelligent, and quirky I'm sold.
