Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesdays


 Today’s Top Ten at The Broke and the Bookish is Books that Intimidate me. 

Top Ten Words/Topics that make me not want to pick up a book:

  1. Death: any book pertaining to death and afterlife as the main focal point, murder mystery books are ok.
  2. Celebrity Biography: Not really interested in reading about someone’s fabulous (or so they think life)
  3. Zombie’s: not a big fan
  4. Time Travel: these books confuse me with the constant jumping from one time period to another
  5. Love Triangles: love triangles in stories are a big turn off for me, they are always messy and seem to draw things out.
  6. Westerns: I will admit I like a few cowboy romance books, but I’m not really drawn to books about the wild west.
  7. Thrillers: Scary thrillers are a big no no for me.
  8. Author Stephen King: most of his work scares me so I avoid it at all costs
  9. Werewolves: haven’t really found a werewolf book that I’ve liked.

Could only come up with 9 this time…..

  1. I think I’ve seen love triangle on every list I’ve read so far today. So glad to know that I’m not alone in my disgust! I have zombies on my list, and Stephen King made an appearance too (though I was using him as an example of when authors need to find a thesaurus and stop using f***).

  2. I think I’m one of those strange people who actively seek out books and movies that will make me sob. I love a good cry fest. But I don’t like books that include love triangles or books that are too scary (which is why I’ve avoided King). And Westerns aren’t my thing either. Great list!

  3. I’m not a GIGANTIC Western fan or anything, but I have nursed a fascination with it since I was a kid. I do love me some Larry McMurtry, Lonesome Dove especially! 🙂 Zombies I truly am baffled by for the most part and just don’t like on principle. I have one zombie book I liked, and the romance still yucked me out (and the second book ruined the series for me completely). Time travel fascinates me, but when it’s a jumpy one it can be confusing so I see where you’re coming from for sure! Great list! 🙂
