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
High five Kimberly! I really don't like reading books with religion in it. i tried, but I just can't.ReplyDelete
Autobiographies and non-fiction books isn't really my thing either.
Awesome list Kimberly & thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:
Ha, yeah I wouldn't be able to relate to a main character over 40 either... I agree on all the other ones too, except for vampires... I'm not tired of them yet :P. Thanks for stopping by! :)ReplyDelete
I struggle with nonfiction as well. I also avoid books about religion. As for vampires...I go back and forth. I got sick of them and took a long break, but now I am thinking about going back!ReplyDelete
vampires are on my list too. i read 1 non-fiction to every 100 fiction novels and i only pick up the 1 because it's required for school.ReplyDelete
-michelle @ Michelle & Leslie's Book Picks
Same here. And even when it's for school I can barely read it.ReplyDelete
That happen to me to, a while ago I was on this huge kick for them after a long break for them. Now I'm back on that break.ReplyDelete
Lucky for you :D. I hate it when I get sick of topics, because I know they're is same awesome books in that topic. But I just can't read themReplyDelete
Yay, I was sure people would give me hate for not liking religion books. Good to know I'm not the only one who doesn't :D.ReplyDelete
Thanks :D & Your welcome
Autobiography? Nonfiction? No way Jose! Not for me, LOL. People over 40 finding love? Yeah, not for me either. I just can't relate. Maybe someday when I'm over 40 I will, but for now I like my YA/NA stuff. :DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
I had religion on my list as well and for the same reasons. I am also someone who has no interest in nonfiction. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I tried to read Burned, I really did...but it SO grossly misrepresented the religion. I couldn't finish. I generally stay away from religious books for that very reason. Totally with you on autobiographies. I kind of find them pretentious.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I completely agree with you on religion-based books, non-fiction & autobiographies/biographies, I never read any of those! A lot of the religion-based fiction comes off to preachy and it bugs me. Non-fiction I pretty much avoid like the plague and same goes for realistic-fiction really hehe I don't read any of those midlife crisis books or divorce books either o.O Awesome list!ReplyDelete
Nice top 6!! I don't mind the occasional Vampire book ;) but the reast, I totally agree with!! Have a great weekend!!ReplyDelete
