Top Ten Tuesday: Things That Make Me NOT Want to Read a Book


The Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Things That Make Me Instantly NOT Want to Read a Book.” It was more difficult to think of 10 things that turn me away from a book than it probably should be.

  1. Ick factor. Lolita is icky and weird.

2. Boring. I have not been able to stay awake past the second page of “The Hobbit.” Am I the only one? I never make it to the adventure.

3. Excessive cursing. I am not offended by cursing. If it seems like cursing is too much then what it the point?

4. Hatefulness and Stereotypes being told as the truth. I probably will never ever read anything by Nazis or KKK members.

5. Copycat. When a book sounds too much like other books, it kind of lacks imagination.

6. Typos. Why go through all of the trouble to get published and have so many typos?

7. Some trigger warnings. Most abusive situations give me anxiety.

8. Bad covers. I don’t want to be in public with a bad cover. There’s a group on Reddit that posts all sorts of bad covers. It’s highly entertaining.

9. Authors that are hateful in real life

10. Things I don’t find interesting: cars, religion, math

Book Reviews



“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. Susan – A bibliophile from WAY back, I love everything about books—reading them, discussing them, reviewing them, smelling them, etc. Check out my other blog——for all my reviews. Besides reading and blogging, I dig family history research, baking, cross-stitching, and spending time with my husband and our four children.

    No one wants to read a boring book! There has to be SOMETHING happening in a story to keep me interested.

    Happy TTT!
