(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
Last week, I talked about the ten things that instantly made me want a book. This week I’m doing the other side: which things make me run a mile.
10) Convoluted descriptions
8) Bad Goodreads ratings
I trust Goodreads reviewers. I’m very active on the site, and don’t often find that my opinion of a novel differs greatly from the general consensus. If a book has an average rating of less than three, I find it very difficult to attempt.
7) Predictable plots
6) Lengthy series
5) Top dollar
4) Bad condition
No matter how much I want to read a book, if it has over five hundred pages I’m going to struggle. They’re not only long and often convoluted, they’re so damn heavy!
2) Irritating authors
1) Dreadful covers
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! What makes you not want to read a book?
