Top Ten Tuesday - Words/Topics that make you not pick up a book

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:

Misery Memoirs - particularly ones about the authors horrific childhood

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

Political Novels


Fantasy books - if the characters/places have unusual names then I struggle with them and I've really tried to like them.


  1. Misery memoirs are the scariest. -shivers-
    And I definitely agree with you on political novels. They are so boring. ):
    Great list! (:

    My TTT

  2. Oh yup, I have no interest in paranormal romance or erotica either. Also chic-lit, though there may be a couple exceptions.

  3. I agree with the political books, wish I had added that to my list.
    Here is my TTT
