Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly NOT Want To Read A Book
1 Naked Men on Front Covers
I don’t see the attraction at all so a big turn off.
I don’t read fantasy except for the Narnia books, so anything in this genre gets a thumbs down.
3 Shortlisted for Book Prizes
These are normally literary fiction which I don’t enjoy so no chance I’ll pick them up.
4 Cartoon Cover
Anything with a cartoon cover that isn’t a comic or graphic novel is a big no no for me.
5 Couples Kissing on The Cover
Like the naked men this is another big turn off
6 Novels Written by Celebrities
I’ve tried a few over the years and haven’t liked many, so I’d rather read a memoir by a famous person than their latest novel.
7 Hyped Up Books
I’ve been caught out with these so many times that I just don’t bother any more.
Anything to do with childhood abuse I can’t even look at, so I’m very likely to give a book with a child on the front cover a very wide berth.
No thanks never seen the attraction with Twilight or anthing vampire related
I’ve tried over the years to read classic literature but I still don’t like it.
