Top Ten Book Turn-Offs
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Love Triangles
No explanation needed, though there are SOME good love triangles.
3. This one kind of relates to #2, but the "Not Like Other Girls" Mentality
What, may I ask, is wrong with other girls?
4.. Glorified Abusive Relationships
(Books where the romantic lead isn't romantic- he's controlling/obsessive/SCARY.)
5. I've-Read-This-Before Syndrome
(AKA, this book isn't unique AT ALL)
6. Inorganic, Excessive Cursing
I don't mind language in books as long as it's natural, but if a character is using the f-bomb as every other word just because they can, though it doesn't contribute to their character at all, I just get annoyed.
7. Bad Covers
I'll probably still read a book if the description is really good, but covers are the first impression!
8. Over 1000 Pagecounts
I love big books, but TOO big just doesn't work with my schedule.
I'm not a fatalistic person, so this keeps me from relating to a book.
10. Repeat Syndrome
Similar to #5, this is when the same author produces a number of books that are all so similar that you can't remember which is which.
What turns you off to a book?
