Let’s all just pretend for a moment that it’s still Sunday and that I wasn’t too busy to post the Sunday Book Club at its regularly scheduled time. :-/
Last week for Top Ten Tuesday I talked about Carrie-bait, i.e. those elements to a book that will instantly make me want to read it.
Today, I want to talk about what makes you NOT want to read a book.
I’ll read just about anything, but there are a few things that turn me away. First and foremost, excessive language and (for lack of a better word) smuttiness. But looking at the story elements themselves, I will almost always avoid reading vampire/zombie/werewolf stories of any kind. Unless Remus Lupin is involved, of course. Another thing sure to turn me away? A dog dying. Can’t handle it.
Ok now it’s your turn. What are some reasons that YOU won’t read a book?
