Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at the wonderful blog; Broke and Bookish. This weeks is : Top Ten words/ topics that make me not pick up a book.
I used to be stuck in my ways, only really reading paranormal, paranormal romance, fantasy but since blogging I have discovered so many amazing genres, making this list incredibly difficult to write!
It does not appeal to me at all. I have read a few and I find them incredibly difficult to immerse myself in. It isn't the same as a novel. There isn't enough there for me to get into.
I just can't. I cannot read this stuff. Of the ones I have read I find them to be quite shallow and with no real purpose to them. This one is quite ironic considering I love watching Sex and the City haha.
Again, no. If I need to study you, I will read up on you. I don't consider these books particularly fun to read. I like losing myself in another world, and this doesn't allow that.
I can read some of this, but only if it is to do with an essay that I am about to write. At the moment I'm reading a fair amount of it with relation to Harry Potter. However, I would never pick these up in a shop for a bit of 'light reading'.
I'm agnostic. Open-minded blah blah blah, but I cannot stomach something that is so deeply involved in religion. It causes so many issues, IMO.
Not for me, thank you. I think the only poetry I have ever enjoyed is Carol Ann Duffy's The World's Wife collection. They are really humorous, but other than that, I cannot stand it.
Nonononono. I cannot think of anything worse to read.
Taking Shakespeare out of this, I cannot deal with plays. I find them tiresome and they are most certainly better watched (as intended).
Unless written by the same author, I have no interest. I feel quite finicky saying this but I have to have my books by one author. I'm not a massive fan of short stories and would much prefer to read a full length novel.
This is me being judgemental, just to warn you all. Of the ones that I have seen floating around, they seem preoccupied with love, romance, sex and that is about it. I really would love a recommendation of a NA book which doesn't revolve around these topics. I'd love to read a new genre, but so far it is not appealing to me at all.
What about you guys? What makes you immediately put books back on the shelves?
