Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make You NOT pick up a book (opposite of April 30 topic!)
This was one of the topics where at first I thought I had nothing for it, but than over time I got more and more ideas for it.
I am so sick and tired of Vampires. It will take a while before I ever have a craving to read a vampire book. I will only read a vampire book if people swear up and down that it's great, even then I will be very hesitant.
First off, I don't care if you have a religion. I have my own beliefs and I don't care if you have beliefs and if they're different than mine. However, I hate reading a book where the main plot is based on religion. I don't know why, I just hate it. It's why I'm nervous to read Burned by Ellen Hopkins. I think it's because sometimes authors can't help but have their opinions bleed into their writing. And I don't like reading a book where the author goes on and on about His/Her beliefs. Again, I don't care what you believe in, but I don't want to read a 300+ page book about those beliefs.
The Next three are because of the same thing, the huge age difference in me and the MC. I am in High School and the people who have midlife crisis are in their (you guessed it) Midlife. Which means I can't connect with the MCs in books like these.
I will read books about the kids perspective in Divorce (If there is a kid), But again I can't relate to most stories about two people Divorcing So, I don't often read books about divorce with the POV with one of those two people.
People over 40 Finding love
This is just like the Midlife Crisis. I just can't relate to the MC characters in these books. I don't have any problems with people over 40 finding love, I mean go for it. I just don't like reading books about it.
I just can't read these. I've tried, but never even gotten to half way.
I will only read certain topics in nonfiction, things that I am interested in. However, as a genre I can't read it. It's like with autobiographies, I just can't get into them.
That's my Top
