For This Week:
REWIND: Top Ten Words/Topics That Make Me NOT Pick Up A Book
(Pick from previous topics that you want to do again or may have missed.)
I would LOVE to be into poetry, but I’m just not. I tried reading some and even writing my own, but I just don’t feel it.
#9: “The next _____!”
Ooh, I hate when it says that on the book! Complete turn off. It doesn’t matter how much I love the cover or the author or whoever recommended it to me, as soon as I see this phrase, I walk away.
#8: M/M romance
I’m just not into it. I know some who enjoy reading m/m romance (hint: my mom’s other daughter) even though she’s as straight as they come. Some f/f romance I don’t mind and actually quite enjoy from time to time, but m/m romance just doesn’t sound appealing to me.
I love watching horror movies, but not so much reading them. The scary parts don’t work that well without all the theatrics, sound effects, and visual effects found in movies. It’s just not the same as movies. On a side note, I judge how scary and how good a horror movie is depending on how many days I get nightmares from it.
Not interested. Actually…that’s a lie. I read The Host and loved it, but that might be the only book I read about aliens (at least for a long time).
I’m a cat person. Enough said.
I’m not an animal-hater, I swear. I just don’t enjoy reading books about animals or pets (even if it’s about a cat). I just don’t feel any connection – it doesn’t make me cry, laugh, or anything.
Not a huge fan of sports. I don’t even follow the Olympics or any other sport event and games.
Books with Christian or God themes aren’t really my genre. I know they might be inspiring to a lot of people but I just don’t find them interesting at all. I love mythologies, legends, fairy tales, and lores, but just not religion-themed books like Christian, Catholic, Buddhism, Islam, Muslim, etc.
#1: Pathetic Suicide Attempts
What I hate the most are pathetic suicide attempts! I’m not in any way supporting or even encouraging suicide (I personally think it’s the most selfish thing a person can do), but just the fact that there are people who attempts suicide as a way to gain attention is just plain pathetic. I mean, if you really want to die, then f**king jump off a 50-storey building or get a gun and shoot yourself in the head. If you can’t then suck it up and move on.
