Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make You NOT Pick Up a Book
**Basically the exact opposite of April 30th's topic!!
-I don't like books that slut-shame. It's too judgmental and just wrong. Unless it's a book that tackles the topic about how it's wrong to slut-shame... I'll read that.
-I try to stay away from politics in all aspects of my life because they either anger me or bore me... so I'm really not going to be into reading a book that talks a lot about politics.
-Yeah, I'm not feeling it.
-I haven't read any books featuring mermaids, so maybe I'm way off base here, but I just can't see myself digging a book about a mermaid.
-So what is Steampunk exactly?? I *think* it's from the industrial revolution time period, but has a modern twist to it? Ok well all I know is I see the word and I run.
-Yeah I hate to say it, but anymore seeing the words New Adult makes me want to put the book down. This genre has SUCH potential, but I have seen very little good things come out of it yet. From my experience New Adult=Erotica and I'm not into that. If I want Erotica I'll read Letters to Penthouse.
-I just don't like Science Fiction. It has to be really special to get me to read it.
-Ok so this one is a little harder to explain. I'm referring to phrases that I see too much in book descriptions. For example: So-and-so has her life all figured out until she meets [Insert tattooed bad boy's name here]. BLAH!!! Or: For fans of The Hunger Games or 50 Shades of Grey... HELL NO!!! Or: Good Girl Gone Bad.
-This phrase usually isn't specifically written out, but if a description starts talking about a love triangle, I'm bouncing.
So those were my anti-words. What are yours??
