Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly NOT Want To Read A Book
This is a hard one for me. There’s a lot that makes me want to read a book, but thinking of things that turn me off is a little bit harder. I like to give books a chance but there are a few things that just don’t do it for me.
Just ugh! I need build up. Time for the characters to fall in love. Time to get to know each other. The exception is if there’s a reason for their insta-love like being werewolf mates. Even then though, I still want their insta-love to be tempered by friendship.
I’m not going to post covers here I don’t like, because I don’t want to hurt any feelings, but it’s true that an ugly cover makes it very, very hard for me to pick up a book.
I know a lot of people like when things get hot and heavy, but I’m not one of them. This is one I can’t even look past. If I know it’s there I won’t even pick it up.
My husband loves this genre. I do not. Sad to say it, but when they start talking and every other word is going over my head, I just can’t do it.
I don’t know what it is about the Fae, but it’s hard for me to like them. When I find out a book has Fae in it, it’s really difficult for me to pick it up.
Like Fae, I just can’t do angels. If someone highly recommends a book to me, I’ll try it, but only grudgingly. This is just one thing that isn’t for me. Oddly enough, demons don’t bother me, but usually are connected to angels so, no go.
