Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make You NOT pick up a book (opposite of April 30 topic!)
I think I’m pretty liberal when it comes to picking out books, but there are definitely some I stay away from.
1. Non Fiction
You could be telling me about an awesome book, and I could be really into it, but as soon as you say the word “non-fiction” I am immediately uninterested.
2. Werewolves, or any other shapeshifter
I’m not really into werewolves or shapeshifters. If there in the book I don’t mind but if they are the main focus of the book I’m not likely to read it.
If it’s been blurbed as terrifying or “it will give you nightmares” I want no part of it.
I don’t like reading books where the main character cheats on his/her significant other. If some douchebag cheats on the main character and they break up because of it is fine, but the main character doing it bothers me.
5. Girl needs to find a new guy/lose her virginity so her friends pay someone to go out with her/have sex with her.
I don’t understand this one at all and I feel like this is becoming a thing, and I don’t want it to become a thing.
6. Erotic Fiction
I’ve read a few and they were ok, but not really for me.
I am not a fan of aliens at all. Even if the aliens are people-like (e.g. Cinder) I don’t really like them. At all.
I cannot handle zombies. At. All. They are weird and gross and freak me out.
8. High Fantasy
I’ve read what I consider to be “fantasy lite” and liked it fine, but I’ll be hard pressed to read a high fantasy book.
