Top Ten Tuesday #13


Yes...I'm back and it's time for a Top Ten Tuesday,a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.Today we have the ''Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make you NOT pick up a Book.''Feel free to comment below and leave your links!!And please tell me if the picture I created is a bit too much so I can change it!


 


1.Love Triangles

Don't get me started on love triangles.If I see a book I like the sound of but then discover that there is a love triangle thing going on...No thanks.And yes...I hate love triangles.Especially if the love triangle appears in the second book of a series...I get really pissed.

2.Zombies

Not my thing.At all.

3.Time Travel

I can't even remember the last time I read a book about time travel.I don't even know if I've ever read a book like that before.

4.Steampunk

I only read one book that can be labeled as steampunk in my entire life and let me tell you...Never again

5.Over Hyped Books

Let's face it.Books like that make you expect something more if you know what I mean...and they might disappoint you in the end.And that's just not okay.

6.Male Protagonist

I don't know if this makes me a bad person...but I usually pick up books told from a girl's perspective.I don't know why.I don't mind reading books that change POVs between two main characters but if a book is told from a guy's perspective/has a male protagonist,I probably won't pick it up.

7.Fairies

No...just no.Nothing else needs to be said...

8.Perfect for fans of...

I hate it when I see a book I really want to read and it says something like:If you loved the Hunger Games...you'll love this book...Or perfect for fans of Twilight.Seriously?Come on.

9.Books without strong female characters

Now let's face it...I like kick-ass heroines who can fight.That's it.

10.Covers

And yes...I am one of those people who won't pick up a book if they don't like the cover.They say that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover but...If I don't like the cover...I won't pick up the book.

Feel free to leave your links below and comment.Can't wait for next Tuesday!!

  2. I really hate that too when the blurb says 'the next..'. It gives too high expectations and it makes the book seem like an unoriginal copy of that famous book. I agree with your other points as well:)

  3. I rarely pick up a book whose cover I don't like either. Sometimes I will, but it's rare. I agree with zombies. That made my list, too. I don't have anything against fairies, per se, but I rarely, if ever, pick them up. Great list!

  5. LOTS of over hyped books disappoint me, so I try to avoid them. However, I'm usually too curious for my own good. >___<
    Great list! (:

  6. I am a fiend for time travel books! :) But I know a lot of people really don't like them. To each their own is a philosophy I have a lifelong subscription to! The love triangle forcing it's way into a second book makes me completely livid. I literally see red when that happens and nowadays I do try to avoid the infamous L.T.s when at all possible! :) Also not a zombie fan. I find it disturbing for the most part. Great list!
