The Broke & the Bookish.
This week's topic: Top Ten Book Turn Offs
Rachel's list is a little more cut and dry and mine. I do agree with Rachel's list and in addition a turn off to me is how the book makes me feel. A really well written book has so much power over my emotions it's not even funny. For whatever reason, I become emotionally connected to what is happening in the book. Is anyone else like this or is it just me? One of big emotion that I do not care to feel when I read is terror which is one the reasons I stay away from horror books. Blood and gore don't bother me, it's more of the feeling of terror when someone/something is going to jump out at you. Disgust is also another big emotion I try to stay away from. This is what I would feel if children are being mistreated in any way or when adults have no morals. Contemplating rape, murder, abuse that sort of thing. I also prefer books with happy endings, since sadness is also a very strong emotion for me as well, however, it's not a deal breaker.
These are on Rachel's list, which I also find annoying.
