Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Topics That Won’t Make Me Pick Up a Book

As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic, a companion to the earlier topic from April 30th, top ten topics that won’t make me pick up a book. Not that they’re always deal breakers, but as a rule I don’t particularly enjoy these types of topics.

1. Cancer

2. Divorce

3. 9/11

4. The Holocaust

5. World War II

6. Zombies

7. Fairies

8. Cars

9. Planes

10. Ghosts

How about you? What are your deal-breaker topics?

  1. I’ve seen zombies on several lists, but I know there’s other apocalyptic-book fans who love a good zombie outbreak like I do.
    (Braaaiiinsss….) 😀
    All items on your list that could be put under the umbrella of ‘depressing events’ I agree with, though.

  2. i don’t like to read about divorce either. Not really what I look for in my escapist reading. And ghosts and fairies probably should have been added to my list too.

  3. Zombies! Especially zombie romance. Eww….. What if she kisses him and his tongue falls off?

  4. What about divorced zombie ghosts who died while driving a car to their oncologists, but were run off the road by fairies hired by holocaust deniers who had a hand in the 9/11 attack, and now are looking to use planes to start World War III because they were not happy with World War II . . .

    . . . that’s right, they be Nazies!! (not on your list)

    Personally, anything with any kind of human drama induced by people being stupid or irrational (most dramas I hear about).
