Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish . This week we’re looking at top ten words or topics that would put you off picking up a book. Nothing is immediately springing to mind but I’m sure as soon as I start, there will be plenty of choices!
There’s just some things I never want to read about.
Sadly I don’t have a political brain, I find it very dry in fiction. Bar the occasional spy thriller this is the top of my list.
3. RUSSIAN VAMPIRES
Something I was sent recently had this on the cover. Not for me I’m afraid!
I wish I was more into non-fiction but it just doesn’t float my boat. Especially autobiographies or self-help books. In fact SELF-HELP should have it’s own sub-category of terror!
5. BABIES / MOTHERHOOD
I’m not really at a place in my life yet where I can relate to main characters who’s entire book life is tied to them being a parent. A future love perhaps.
Life is too depressing already.
7. GRIEF / DEATH
Having lost a very close, dear friend there’s some things I never want to relive and losing a loved one is not something I can deal with contemplating. This head is firmly buried in the sand.
I don’t play any and understand even less.
9. BANKING / FINANCE
Another very dry topic here and one that’s made me turn away from thrillers before.
10. ANCIENT ROME
It would have to be a very good book to make me pick it up if it includes any form of ancient civilisation – Rome, Egypt etc… not as the main setting thank you very much.
As expected that turned out to be easier than I thought!
What are your top ten?
