Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme (and one that I really like) hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week bloggers have to make a top ten concerning the topic of that week. This week the topic iiiiissss:
Top ten words/topics that make you NOT pick up a book
Wow, this is really difficult for me. It's easy to come up with five words/topics, but the other five seem to be a huge stumbling block. There are a few things I don't like in books, but when I have to sum them up, it just seems like I love aaaaall kinds of books and there aren't so many topics that stop me from picking one up. Yet I have to choose ten things and here they are (not in order of "importance"):
I really don't know why I don't like to read stories with Zombies in them because I like movies and TV series about them. I'm a huuuge Jane Austen fan and when I leave a book based on Austen behind because there are Zombies in it, that says enough...
What can I say? I'm just not interested in them. A lot of people believe that everybody needs to be involved with politics, but I say "Hey it's ok if you don't and especially if you don't want to read books about it" ;)
I just can't connect with characters who travel in time. Maybe I will when it becomes possible to actually travel in time. I need books I can believe (that's not always true, but you know what I mean)...
I saw this topic in the list of our host and I have to say the same thing. I'm not at a point in my life where I'm thinking of becoming a mother. In the future this will change for sure, but for now: naaah, not my thing ;)
I don't like this genre for the same reason as time travel. Most of the time I can't connect with Sci-Fi stories because they are/seem so unreal. Also in movies I don't like the Sci-Fi aspect most of the time.
I hate books where people die. Life is already difficult and hard enough, so when I read a book I want to escape that life. Escapism is really one of the reasons why I read books. The world in which I flee has to be a happy one or at least with a happy ending.
Nah, not my thing. Like I said: I need a happy ending. I believe there are horror stories with happy endings, but I don't want horrible things happening, waiting for that ending.
I'm just so cheesy! I need love in a book. I don't care if it's love in a family or between two other people. We all need some love in our lives, so for me every book has to provide a little in that...
It's not that I don't like to think when I'm reading a book, but I just don't like the typical detective story where you have to pay attention to every little detail and where you have to be on your guard every single page. Also I have the feeling most of the detective stories are kind of the same thing...
Too much problems, too much pain,... I don't like war... Not in real life, not in books. That's all.
Voila, these are a few of my least favorite things. I'm sure there are more things I don't like but I just can't come up with them right now.
If you think I should try some books to get over this "hate", you can leave a comment below ;)
