Hello everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
The top ten today is: Book Turn Offs
So I don't have any real solid things that make me say I won't read a book really but there are some things that make a book less appealing to me and thus less likely to make my TBR or Currently Reading pile.
Non-Fiction: I'm all about going into another world and being surprised. Non-fiction just feels like school work.
Poetry- If there is some poetry woven into a story that is all well and good but a book of straight poems is a bit much. I never got into it in school and just can't let myself lose with it as much as other styles.
Historical- So yeah I'm not a huge history gal. Historical aspects with other fantasy or supernatural aspects are fine but when it's just a straight historical I struggle. I'm very much a product of my generation and when the female lead is "different" because she has opinions and the general idea of women being powerless and more like property.
Super long series- I love me some series and I don't mind the length normally. But picking up a book and seeing it already has 8-43 books already out it seems very daunting. It's a large commitment and even if the series sounds amazing I'm leery to start I mean that is intimidating as hell!
Religious Books- I just don't enjoy strong religious focused books. I don't mind a religious character but if the whole plot counts on my religious knowledge we're in trouble.
