Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Topics that Make Us Not Pick up a Book: Topic over at The Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesday Meme.
1. Carnegie: I am not in history anymore it is not required for me to read about a man who owned one of the biggest monopolies in the US. If you are going to write about him please add some twist to it.
2. Oil: Ashley read this book that referenced the huge BP Oil spill and I guess it was okay hearing her thoughts on it but, I don’t think I would have picked it up.
3. Slang: I can handle a little bit of street slang but when the writing is in texting style and I have to use the internet to figure some of the words out.
4. Math: Now I know my math pretty well but unless the book is for school then I will not pick it up. If it involves a math geek who may be a female then it might go on my TBR pile.
5. Dominoes: Who would write a book about this game or use it as a main plot? I am not sure but I know that I wouldn’t read it.
1) Religion: Now I am not saying I will put a book down if it starts discussing religious topics but, if the whole plot is based around God or some other higher being I don’t see myself picking it up to read.
2) Horror: I am a huge horror fan when it comes to movies but I couldn’t read Stephan King in the dark and if I did, move over parents I will be in the bed for two nights. When I was younger I could do it but, now strictly horror is not my thing anymore.
3) “Those that Loved Twilight”: If that is written on the front cover I typically do not pick it up. This is not because I do not like twilight but I feel when this sort of recommendation is done it is because it involves a super similar plot.
4) Drugs: I read the Perfect Chemistry books pre-blog. I picked it up for my younger cousin to read as a gift. I read it first though and when I finished it I was upset that this book was in the younger section at my local B&N. I returned the book immediately and told them it was shelved in the wrong section. I have since read the rest of the Perfect Chemistry books and I do like them because I am older now but I am thankful my 12 year old cousin did not get a chance to read it back then.
5) Death: Yes I will read a book that has someone that dies in it but if the book is strictly about the death I cannot do it. I do cry when reading but something about bawling over a book character`s death the whole novel.
Read Long and Prosper,
Ashley & Sean
