10 words/topics that will make me put a book down

Top 10 Tuesday. Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

When I reading a blurb, or the preview of an ebook, there are a few topics that will make me put the book down. Mostly, they’re tropes, the kind that have been flogged to death and then resurrected and flogged some more, but the first two I just don’t like.

  • Rape
  • Tragic love
  • Arthurian legend – but I’m reconsidering
  • Ruthless billionaires
  • Innocent heroines
  • Faeries
  • Angels
  • Sexy, brooding and/or sparkling vampires
