Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Broke and Bookish. This weeks is : Top Ten Words/Topics That Make Me NOT Pick Up A Book:
Crime books: I’ve tried a couple of detective books, but it’s just not for me. Mostly I can’t relate to the characters and the whole mystery is mostly boring.
Graphic novels: When I read a book I want to imagine my own world, characters… and in a graphic novel there’s just too little information. But I like comic books.
Biographies: If I want to know something about a person I’ll just Google it. But to read a whole novella about one person, no but thanks.
Insta-love: It’s impossible to fall in love in just a couple of days. You might be attracted to someone. But lust and love are two very different things.
Non-fiction: It’s just not my thing. I want to lose myself in a world that doesn’t exist.
Erotica: I read Fifty shades and no thanks never again! I really can’t believe that these books sell so well.
Hyped books: If a book is a real hype at the moment I don’t pick it up most of the time. Maybe I read it later, when the whole hype thing is over.
Horror: I’ve a pretty weak stomach and a good imaginations, so these books just freak me out.
The next…: Every book/author is unique, so why should you call it the next? And a good author should be able to make a name for himself.
Fan fiction: If you want to write a book why not use your own imagination instead of using someone else’s?
