Top Ten Tuesday: Book Turn Offs

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week, the theme was Ten Things that Make you Instantly NOT Read a Book!


  1. Hype- I read hyped up books once the hype has died down, but of the books I read that were hyped up, I haven’t liked them, so I tend to be wary of hyped books now.
  2. Supernatural fiction- I’m not overly keen on witchy/angel/fae books- there are some exceptions but I usually avoid them.
  3. Horror- I don’t like blood and gore.
  4. Insta-love.
  5. Unrealistic Relationships. (e.g student and teacher)
  6. Ugly covers (JUDGE ME I DON’T CARE)
  7. Focus on an eating disorder- I don’t care if it is a book to demonstrate the health problems and warnings, having had an eating disorder, I don’t want to read these types of books in case they are written badly/under-researched/glorified.
  8. Bad reviews.
  9. Low ratings.
  10.  John Green. (I’ve read two of his books now and I wasn’t overly keen on either of them)

Some of these are controversial I know!
Anyway, thanks for reading!

  1. Ah, but there’s so much more to horror than blood and gore. (Though admittedly I’m a gorehound). Paranormal horror rarely contains much in the way of blood and gore. Also clean/YA horror rarely suffers from it. So don’t discount it entirely! You might be missing some great stuff 🙂
