9 Things in Books that Make Me Run Towards Them with Open Arms aka What Compels Me to Read Certain Books

So, to the surprise of many, I actually, you know, LIKE books.

I’m getting more and more critical of the books I read, and you’ll see me handing out more 3-star ratings than 5-star (I HAVEN’T READ ANY 5-STAR BOOKS THIS YEAR YET HELP).

But?? All is not completely lost yet???? There are still MANY things in books that I absolutely love to read, and so today, I decided to talk about them! Aka me screaming about my favorite things and then demanding recommendations.

(Also! All the book covers link to the book’s page on Goodreads!!)

fae divider (2)

1. magic!

I’m a fantasy-lover at heart, and I love magic*, whether it be in fantasy or magical realism. It’s just so fun and exciting to read about and… magical. (I obviously have great vocabulary.)

Honestly?? I love anything that involves something-that-doesn’t-exist-in-the-real-world because, I mean. The real world? Boring. And also very messy. And actually quite depressing to think about. (Unless we’re thinking about MANGOES.)

examples

I literally have so many favorite magical books but okay

When the Moon Was Ours  A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)  Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)

All of Anna-Marie’s books contain magic (SHE IS MY FAVORITE MAGICAL REALISM AUTHOR GO READ HER BOOKS RIGHT NOW) but that’s my favorite. And ADSOM literally has “magic” in its title?? And Strange the Dreamer, while I had some issues with it, has SUPER. COOL. MAGICAL. POWERS.

*I typed the “ma” and my fingers immediately went to the “n”. Have I tricked my fingers into typing “mangoes”??? Yes.

2. diversity (esp. queer or POC rep)

As y’all know, I’m a HUGE advocate for diversity & representation of marginalized people in books, especially as a person part of a variety of minorities!

And I mean, I won’t pick up a book SOLELY because it’s diverse (unless it directly represents me), but it still gets a boost in my TBR because I looooove diverse books and think them to be extremely important.

Oh and?? If you mention “queer” or “gay” relating to anything in a book, I will be there faster than you can include “pirates” or “space” or “witches” (which are three things that are absolutely gay. don’t fight me on this).

examples

Starfish  The Epic Crush of Genie Lo (The Epic Crush of Genie Lo #1)  I Believe in a Thing Called Love

These are all books I mostly picked up for the Asian rep, and guess what!! I didn’t like any of them except for Starfish!!

And I KNOOOW I keep screaming about Starfish, but how can I not?? It is literally THE best representation of myself as an Asian that I’ve ever read. The absolute best.

3. morally ambiguous characters

Y’ALL I LOVE MORALLY AMBIGUOUS CHARACTERS SO MUCH YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH MY LOVE FOR THEM GOES ON FJAD;SLKFJALSKDF.

I mean like ?? Six of Crows probably fueled this extreme love, but STILL. I love characters that you don’t know are good or bad, who do things that are morally questionable, seem kind-hearted one moment and then CRUEL the next fjsflsfslf THEY’RE SO INTERESTING.

examples

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)  This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)  The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1)

Okay so like literally everyone from Six of Crows is questionable, Kate Harker from This Savage Song definitely is, and then Adelina Amouteru is more like a villain but still???

fae divider (2)

4. darkness

I rarely read thrillers or horror, because I’m a wimp and get terrified of a tiny creak in my house at night. So you’d think that I would STAY AWAY from “darkness” in books (such as a voice in your head telling you to kill people)*, but actually, no. I LOVE IT.

I can’t describe what about darkness compels me so much?? It’s so creepy but for some reason I find it so FUN to read and write. Something in me’s a little twisted, I know.

But like COME ON. Something in your head ordering you to kill people?? Trying to resist that something??? But then finally giving in because you just can’t fight anymore??? FJDLSFKJDS I LOVE IT.

examples

Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity, #2)  A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic, #3)  The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1)

Our Dark Duet and A Conjuring of Light are by the queen, Victoria Schwab not the first books of the series, but they’re the darkest of the series and it’s BEAUTIFUL**. And with the whole “voices” thing: Adelina’s story is so so dark.

*This is literally what my old WIP was about. DO YOU SEE WHY I SCARE MYSELF.
**May, this is not how you describe these kind of things.

5. pretty covers

Would it even have been ME if I didn’t include this on my list??

Y’all I can’t help but FALL IN LOVE WITH BOOK…’S COVERS. Some of them are prettier than I’ll ever be and I envy them so much (and then there are the ugly ones but we don’t talk about them).

And I honestly don’t buy a lot of books based on cover because I barely buy any (read: I’m broke) so I make sure that there is a very high chance of me liking the book before buying. But at the library?? I check out the books I came for, other random new releases, and then the ones with PRETTY COVERS.

examples

An Enchantment of Ravens  The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy, #1)

Despite both of these books’ gorgeous covers, I actually HATED these books. Because I love reminding myself of all the books I’ve been disappointed by!!!

fae divider (2)

6. squads

Again, Six of Crows probably had something to do with my love for squads in books, but something makes me SO HAPPY to read about a group of close friends. Like they can do all sorts of crazy things together??? Such as stealing a prisoner from the world’s most secure prison and trying not to kill each other. Doesn’t that sound like so much FUN.

(This is not talking about Six of Crows at all, I don’t know what you’re talking about.)

examples

Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1)  The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)

I would’ve included Six of Crows but I mean…

fae divider (2)

7. cinnamon roll characters

I’m someone who HAS to connect to characters otherwise I will not like the book. I will probably hate it. So when I hear that a book has brilliant characters, I HAVE TO READ IT.

And with my favorite books, I’ll fall in love with the characters! And proceed to call them my children and imagining they exist in real life and pretending to talk to them,,, but that’s not the point.

examples

Tbh any characters that are cinnamon rolls are just cinnamon rolls to me. There is no formula. I JUST LOVE CHARACTERS.

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)  The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)  The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda  Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)  Wild Beauty

  • the tough-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside guy (Matthias from Six of Crows*, Ronan from The Raven Cycle)
  • strong, whether it be emotionally or physically, girls (Inej & Nina from Six of Crows, Annabeth from Percy Jackson)
  • cute nerds (Simon from Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Hermione from Harry Potter)
  • soft boys (Wylan from Six of Crows, Fel from Wild Beauty)
  • smol characters in general????

*I was going to put Kaz with Matthias but I realized that Kaz is not soft… anywhere.

fae divider (2)

8. social issues

So I know I said I like to read things that AREN’T relating to the real world, because the real world has so many problems and I’d just like to escape them all, you know. But like??? I really love books about social issues??

The contemporaries I end up enjoying the most are actually NOT the fluffy dramatic “oh my god how do I get them to like me” contemporaries. (They’re annoying.) They’re the ones that are heavy and gritty, because for some reason, I like the contemporaries that HIT ME HARD.

Some issues that I love reading about (because I’m insanely passionate about them) include:

  • racism
  • beauty standards (especially concerning the societal standard that “white is pretty”)
  • police brutality
  • rape or sexual assault/harassment/abuse (and other issues relating to rape culture)
  • feminism !!!

examples

The Hate U Give  The Nowhere Girls  Girl Made of Stars

THUG talks about racism & police brutality, The Nowhere Girls talks about rape culture and feminism (TWO IN ONE WHOOP), and Girl Made of Stars* talks about rape culture!

*Y’ALL I’M READING THIS RIGHT NOW AND IT’S SO RIDICULOUSLY GOOD I LOVE IT SO MUCH AAAHHHH.

fae divider (2)

9. close relationships

I mentioned this a little briefly in Point #6 (squads), but I absolutely when friends or family members are super close?? Like when it’s a group of friends, they can be all like “I want to kill you but I also want to kill you”. Or they can find a family in EACH OTHER AWWW.

(I’m such a sap.)

And I think close family relationships are really important because you don’t really see them in books, and it’s also really SWEET to see brothers and sisters and parents bonding!!!

examples

Wild Beauty  The Weight of Feathers  To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

So literally all of Anna-Marie’s books have really close family relationships??? (AND I LOVE IT.) But TATBILB also has a great sister-father relationship as well!


shall we chat

what are some things that make YOU pick up books?? do you get scared easily by horror? who are some of your “cinnamon rolls”? are you a fantasy or contemporary lover?? (or both? neither?) and give me some recommendations based on these things, i need more!!!

  1. I have definitely picked up books based on the covers (mainly contemporary) and I totally agree with the one about reading books based of family relationships (aww I love To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before). I’d have to say I’m a contemporary lover…but I do lvoe some fantasy. Also I somehow haven’t read Six of Crows yet…or The Raven Boys…Great post 🙂

  5. Omg okay basically all of these things make me love books, too, so. Thank you! 😍
    I definitely have to FINALLY pick up a book by Anna-Marie McLemore, I just don’t know where to start?? They all sound so good 😭
    As for recs: Have you read More Than This by Patrick Ness? Great rep, a hell of a lot of darkness, and a really great squad / found family thing. I read it last month and loved it instantly!!

    1. Omg all of Anna-Marie’s books are AMAZING!! I’d personally recommend When the Moon Was Ours because it’s my favorite, but I think Wild Beauty is also a really really good one. 😍

      I haven’t read More Than This yet, but it looks really good! I’ll definitely keep your rec in mind. 😊

  6. I liked pretty covers but can never buy any book based on their appearance again after reading Everything, Everything.

    I do simply like looking at the covers, though. I want to try making covers for fun.

    I guess POC rep really gets my attention as well as a ‘no romance’ book so I try to make a Goodreads shelf that I can access easily. Contemporary is my go-to genre but I don’t like SUPER Fluffy contemporaries except for Jenny Han and Holly Smale’s books (but Holly Smale’s isn’t THAT fluffy). I also prefer deeper subjects. Challenger Deep was a very good contemporary, despite it being confusing.

    I like squads but I usually get tired of them near the end of the book? I don’t often find much characters that I can relate to.

    1. Omg I’ve heard such mixed things about Everything, Everything! It definitely has a gorgeous cover but I’m not reading it hahhaa.

      Oh yes, no romance is really big for me! I think that in YA we often have waaaay too much romance in books (beyond what is realistic). And yes I read Challenger Deep and itw as super good! I love deeper subjects in contemporary as well, it’s so much more interesting than fluffy ones haha.

  7. I LOVE THIS POST and I can relate to a lot of these things, too. I really love it when the book features close relationships as well, like friendships and family relationships, these are amazing and so important and need to be featured more. I’m not against a romance at all, but FRIENDS! FAMILY! Present! with great relationships! I am all here for that.
    I also love love love love loveeeeeeeee amazing squads in books, the raven boys is amazin for that and I have to read ink and bone soon, since you mentioned it here??
    Great post! 🙂

    1. Close relationships are so important!! Friendships and family relationships are definitely the ones I want to see more of in books, especially since those things are SUPER important when you’re a teen. And yeah, romance is cool, but it’s important to have non-romantic relationships!!

      Omg yes read Ink and Bone! I love it so much and they have such a great squad friendship. ❤

  10. Oh yes, I love squads in books! Especially the sort where the friends are alternately threatening to throw each other off cliffs and giving each other pizza and hugs because honestly, that’s what real life friends do, isn’t it?? Also I LOVE sibling relationships in books. Just- AHHHHHHH. I love them so much. And basically just characters in general?? I LIVE for good characters. Pretty much EVERY character in the Harry Potter books is so fantastic and quirky and well-developed and I love them so much. ❤

    1. OMG YESSSS. Switching between “I’m going to kill you” to all that sappy smushy stuff is my FAVORITE type of relationships, in books and in general tbh. ❤ Yes YES YES! Well-developed characters are my favorite. Like plot's cool and all, but I remember books for the amazing (or horrible) characters!!

  11. SO MUCH LOVE for all of these wonderful things in books.❤️I’m also a huge fan of magic, diversity, beautiful covers (my weakness!!), family relationships (why is this so scarce??
    it makes my heart so happy) AND SQUADS. The original Percy-Grover-Annabeth Lightning Thief squad is actually my favorite ever.

    Though I do have a love/hate relationship with ambiguous characters?? Like I literally cannot decide if I like Snape or not. I think that’s kind of the point though…

    Anyway, great post, May! I just added like a thousand books to my TBR.😂

    1. Magic, diversity, and beautiful covers are some of my favorite things about books!! And omg YES YES YES the Percy-Grover-Annabeth trio squad is beautiful and I love their close friendship so much. ❤ And aaahhhh I honestly can… not like Snape?? He abused children, and while he was abused too and that definitely should not brushed aside, I felt like JK wrote his experiences being abused as a way to excuse the fact that he abused others too. :/

      YES YOU BETTER READ THESE BOOKS ASAP!!

  12. Social issues, characters you connect with, darkness and close relationships??? Oh yeah! Definitely! And as much as I don’t want to admit it, maybe pretty covers have something to do with it too??? Or just the fact that they’re books? And books are, well, books (aka pure awesome)

  13. I AGREE WITH ALL OF THIS !!! These things are my favourites in books and I found myself nodding to everything! Also, WTMWO is my favourite McLemore book too. I READ IT AS AN ARC AND I STILL THINK ABOUT EVERYDAY SEND HELP!!!
    Not gonna lie, my heart shattered into a million pièees when I saw you hated The City of Brass *cries forever*. An Enchantement of Ravens in on my TBR and from what I’m seeing people either LOVE it or HATE it, there doesn’t seem to be any meh opinions about it.
    I have The Nowhere Girls and an arc of Girl made of Stars is on its way to me but I need to be in a good headspace to read books about rape culture so I’m still holding off.

      Aagghhh I’m so sorry!!! I was ready to love City of Brass and mentally five-starred it and everything, but I think it just really didn’t click with me. 😭😭 And omg yup, there are no meh opinions on AEOR! It’s a little ridiculous how differing the opinions are. 😂

      Oh yes, The Nowhere Girls and Girl Made of Stars are both pretty triggering books. I really loved them both (I’m already rereading GMOS oh my god) but take care of yourself!! ❤

  15. Oh magic is the main thing that draws me to books. Probably why I find myself largely reading from the fantasy genre, I just can’t resist! Also yes pretty covers. If it’s gorgeous chances are I’m going to have to check out the blurb, and chances are I’m going to love the blurb and end up buying it too (it’s how I discovered Anna-Marie McLemore’s books after all)! 😀
    I love stories with darkness, and stories with morally ambiguous characters. I also love books with strong family relationships, and fairytale retellings. Literally a book has to do is reference a fairytale in the blurb and it goes to the top of my to-read list for sure! 🙂
    Great post May, and oh you featured some of my favourite books of all time as your examples as well. 😀 ❤

    1. Yes, same! Fantasy always intrigues me more than contemporary because of all those magical, otherworldly things happening in them. And omg yes same! Gorgeous covers intrigue me and I’m definitely more likely to look it up. 😉

      Darkness and morally ambiguous characters are the BEST!! Especially since a lot of ambiguous characters end up being slightly dark. 😂 And ah yes fairytale retellings are absolutely brilliant!
