Take ten(ish) things that will instantly make me not want to read a book
In movies and books, I'm not interested in unnecessary violence. I like my mysteries and war stories, but not if they are graphic.
I don't enjoy a story if it is going to have curse words and "scenes".
3. Horror movie style suspense
Yeah, I have an active imagination as it is, so I if a book is suppose to creep readers out, I don't even pick it up.
4. Science fiction
Don't get me wrong, a little bit of the genre is okay, but I won't pick up a book if it is hard core Sci-Fi.;)
5. Stories that glorify abuse
I don't think abuse is okay, and I shudder at what books like Shades of Gray are teaching the next generation. That sort of relationship is not okay in any way, shape, or form.
6. Steamy romance
Yes, I like my stories with a bit of romance, but I like for there to be something else to the story as well.
7. Modernizing Regency
This genre is just so wrong to me.
8. Love triangles
These can be done well, but rarely....
9. Overly gorgeous characters
I like characters I can relate to.;)
10. Insta love
I will read these on occasion, but I generally am turned off by it.
