toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly get-together of bloggers posting book lists on a theme. You can join fun each week at the Broke and The Bookish blog.

This week it’s 10 things that make me instantly want to read (or listen to) a new book.

The book has something to do with a royal, a Roosevelt or a Churchill.

 

Eight

One of my like-minded reader friends says I must read it and they are the friends who know what I really will like.

 

 

Nine

The book has amazing food in it.

 

Ten

The book just somehow attracts my notice for another reason.

 

What instantly makes me DROP a book and forgot it:

  1. Graphic sex
  2. Graphic violence
  3. Overuse of profanity
  4. Animal cruelty
  5. Historical inaccuracies
  6. Diversity rammed in just to have diversity
  7. Modern views in historical characters
  8. Sleazy covers
  9. The word “dystopian” used anywhere.
  10. The words “zombie” or “vampire” used anywhere.

  1. I like your list. I feel it is more honest that the other lists I have seen today. I agree about going weak on the knees for books about food. Have you read The Improbability of Love? That was a recent one that I loved.

    Yes, I do not like graphic sex and violence and also diversity included just for the sake of it
