This is my first time participating in the very popular blog event, Top Ten Tuesday. Not sure I can keep up with weekly participation, but it is a fun event, so I'll give it a try.
This week's topic is the "Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make You NOT pick up a book." I get a kick out of the topic, because it does only take a word or a phrase to turn me off a book, no matter how popular. And I realize that my bookish turn-offs are just the things that a lot of people look for between the covers.
If I see any of these, the book stays on the shelf:
- serial killer
- World War I
- coming of age
How about you? What words turn you away from a book?
