Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish and each week there's a different topic. As always, even if you can't think of 10, do as many as you can. This week the topic is words/topics that make you NOT pick up a book.
Here are mine:
Erotic Fiction - all those Fifty Shades of Grey type books
Classic books the size of a brick with extremely small print
Funniest - If on the cover it says "this is the funniest book you'll ever read" it has a lot to live up to and invariably it isn't the funniest book I've ever read
Paranormal Romance - I know it's a very popular genre but it just doesn't interest me, perhaps I'm missing out.
Chick Lit - especially if it's about shopping/shoes etc as I'm one of the few females who doesn't enjoy either of these (unless it's shopping for books)
Westerns - I've never read one but they just don't interest me
Fantasy books - if the characters/places have unusual names then I struggle with them and I've really tried to like them.
