  1. We share quite a few! Nice list. I never read anything about books. Have to change that! :)

    My TTT

  2. Dragon book , i forgot it . Nice lists

  3. I love any book set in a library or involving books - it pretty much guarantees my interest! Also, dragons and mythology, when done right, are things that make me want to pick up a book.

  4. I love your list - so many mythical creatures. I love them too! I had Vampires and Werewolves/Shifters on my list too, but I also love a good fairy and witch book.

    Check out my TTT!

  5. Love this, we have a lot of the same words and I think the same inspiration! My Top Ten Tuesday

  6. What a fun Top Ten Tuesday! Libraries and book stores are definitely a draw for me. While I wouldn't have thought to list dragons, I have read both The Hobbit and Seraphina lately...hmm.

  7. I agree with so many of these. Mythology, books about books, witches, fairy tales, and humor, especially. Great list!
    Here's my TTT

  8. I also listed ghosts, fairytales and humor. Fairytale retellings are just so much fun. I love to see how an author has taken the original tale and reworked it and expanded into a new story with lots of character development.

    And books that make me laugh are always my favorites.

    Thanks for sharing :)

  9. I love Terry Pratchett and many of the other books you list are on my TBR "mountain" (no longer a pile). The Demon's Librarian?! That sounds AWESOME! New book! ::scampers off to add to TBR list::

  10. How could I have left dragons off my list?!
