Top Ten Tuesday #5

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?



  1. Yes, hyped books. Annoying. Any time I can see the man behind the curtain....

    But nonfiction? There are some masterpieces of nonfiction that I'd urge you to try, nonfiction that anyone would love. Creative nonfiction, not textbooks. I need to do a post about it one day.

    Here's my Top Ten list.

    1. I haven't come across a nonfiction book that I liked. But now I'm intruiged by you comment. Can you name one so I can maybe check it out?

  2. I'm with you on ALL of those, except erotica. I love me some smut from time to time as long as it's done well (as in, it must have a PLOT).

    1. I've only read Fifty Shades and that book was really not my thing. It can bze that others are better.

  3. Biographies aren't really my thing either. And yeah, Google does exist for a reason.
    Non-fiction isn't really my thing either.
    Awesome list! :D
