Top Ten Tuesday

Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic. They are kinda crazy and a totally fun to read.

Top ten word/ topics that make me not pick up a book

  • Autobiography: Uhm. Yeah..I’ll pass
  • Motherhood: Not something I’m drawn to. I like the more developing love….
  • Non-ficton: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Nope. 
  • Self- Help: I am not my mother. I like going into another world other than my own, not learning about all the different types of wheat or green smoothies. 
  • If you love (……) you’ll love this!:  This almost immediately turns me off of the book, especially if the dot dot dots are Twilight.
  •  Badly behaving authors: This pretty much speaks for itself
  •  Audiobooks: I don’t have the attention span for this
  • Ouija Boards: I can’t say why, but they scare the crap out of me.  
  • Erotica: I never have, nor will I ever, read this *cough* 50 Shads of Grey
  • Animal Abuse: I. Just. Can’t. This will make me sob.

  1. Great list. I know exactly what you mean by the Twilight references… It drives me CRAZY how often other books try and drop the name so readers will pick it up!
    Thanks for stopping by!


  2. wow I agree with every single item in this list! My mom's obsessed with self help books as well and I honestly don't get it. Or non-fiction and autobiographies for that matter…

    Great list!


  3. High five to the badly behaving authors bit! Like really, no thank you.
    And wow, I should have added animal abuse to my list. 😛
    Great list Jackie & thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:


  4. OOh nice ones! I can agree with most of them! I didn't think to pick genres or subgenres really. Don't know what I was thinking to be honest. I could've gone with a lot more than I did. As it is I only picked 5!

    Definitely agree with that last one! One of my reads from like last month had something along these lines and I was in tears!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. Yay! God…my best friends mom reads nothing but romance and my mother reads all this self help and yoga books. I love her..but her reading choices..not so much xD
    Happy reading


  6. *high five* I cannot read animal abuse. I love my pets too much. I saw this discovery penguin movie when I was 7 and I ran out of the theater crying. It was so traumatizing….
    Thanks for stopping by!


  7. Thanks! & Lol. I cannot read animal abuse…or animals dying. No I haven't read Marley and Me or Old Yeller. I don't plan to either.
    Happy reading!


  8. Great list Jackie! Yeah, not a fan of motherhood type stuff either. I don't have kids and am not sure if I ever will, so blah to that. Self-help books? BORING. I actually don't mind the If you love this… line. I've actually found some really great books that way. But I can understand your hesitation.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier!
