Top Ten Tuesday: Topics That Make us Pass-Up Books

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is dedicated to the topics which we avoid reading about. As always a big cheers of our whiskey sours to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting TTT, our fav weekly book blog meme!

Grad Student:

    Undead and Unwed (Undead, #1)
  • Trolls. NO TROLLS. Trolls are icky and live under bridges. I tried Amanda Hocking's series, but no trolls for this girl.
  • Serial Killers. I am a huge wimp. I had to stop watching Law and Order: SVU when I moved to NYC because they kept killing women in my neighborhood and I was terrified of every episode.
  • Pregnancy. YIKES
Crazy Camper:

  • Incredibly snobby, rich characters- looking at you, everyone in the Bluebloods series by Melissa de la Cruz.
  • Anything with a pun in the title, stop suggesting things like Undead and Unwed or Witch Way to Murder.
  • Adultery/ cheating scandals- Ugh- no THANKS.
  • INSTA-LOVE/ DESTINED LOVE.  Shakespeare really opened a can of worms with Romeo and Juliette.  Feuding houses? Ick.  Insta-ove? Especially in teenagers or budding witches?  No thanks.
Puns AND babies.


  1. I gotcha on the trolls. I too didn't make it past the first book in the Trylle series.

    Cheating made my list too, and insta-love SHOULD have made my list. It's one of my biggest pet peeves.

  2. Crazy Camper, those pun titles hurt my soul. I totally agree with you.

  3. I can not stand book with cheating in it, especially when they try to condone it. No thank you!

  4. The Bluebloods series is full of snobby rich characters? Eww, no thanks, that's an immediate turnoff. I've got enough of those to last a lifetime.
    Great list! :D

    My TTT

  5. I LOVE serial killers, but I can see why you would want to stop watching SVU. :)


Comments? Heck ya!
