Top Ten Tuesday: What Makes Me Instantly Quit Reading a Book

toptentuesday

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 words “dystopian” or “science fiction” or “fantasy” or “vampires” or “zombie” used anywhere.
  10. Weird Names  or Nicknames No One Has in Real Life

You can read more about a few of these and learn about a few others in a previous post: Top 5 Book Trends I’m Tired of…..

  1. Yep, with you on just about all of these. For some reason, I forgive Phillipa Gregory for some of her historical inaccuracies but not all–I’m inconsistent on that one myself. Dracula was the last vampire book I read, and do not feel the loss 🙂

  2. Ha ha — you made me think of some I hadn’t thought of before! I’ve been seeing so many cheesy covers later. Mostly for romances. But I guess somebody is actually eating these up!!
