Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, we'll make a list of our top ten something* and this week, it's the Top Ten Words/Topics That Instantly Make Me Buy/Pick Up A Book. This is a great topic, I'm really looking forward to writing this list! 
*In no particular order*

1. Ghosts
I really enjoy these types of books. I suppose I'm just really intrigued by the paranormal. Further proof of this is one of the next books that will be reviewed here- Haunting Violet. 
2. Vampires
I'm not obsessed or anything.... I just happen to be a fan of the vampire theme! A lot of people I know are just over the whole thing, but for me, vampires and mythology never get old.
3. Werewolves
I couldn't write vampires and leave out the werewolves! Most of the time in books, these two are linked anyway, but I thought I'd put it on here.
4. Star-crossed lovers
Ever since this theme was introduced to me in The Hunger Games, I've started looking for books of this theme. So far, I haven't found many recent ones. Any suggestions?
5. Fallen angels
I've reviewed quite a few fallen angel books/series here in the last few months- Fallen and Hush, Hush being the main ones (check out my reviews *cough, cough*). I think this is a fantastic theme that needs more publicity. Most of these series are actually quite good!
6. Fairytales
Being a huge fan of all the old fairytales I used to read when I was a lot younger, this is still a topic I love. Although I don't enjoy those fairytales as much as I did when I was a kid, I still love reading ones with a sort of gothic/paranormal twist on them, like Alice in Zombieland. I really want to read that.
7. Dystopian
I'm sure many of you will agree with me here- this is a great theme! 
8. Magic
After Harry Potter, how could you not want to keep reading books of this theme? Nothing will beat Harry Potter though. 
9. Love
I will always love books that are romantic.
10. Supernatural
So in case you haven't already noticed, I happen to like this kind of thing... 

That's all for this week guys, thanks for reading! Please leave your comments below with links to your TTT lists so that I can check them out! :)
