Top Ten Words/Topics that will make me not want to pick a book up
1: Incest - Disgusting, enough said(and is the reason I won't watch Game of Thrones)
2: Love Triangles - Seriously, when you get down to it, it's cheating plain and simple. Besides, if I have to here about some girl having to choose between two so-called 'hot men' I'm going to tear my hair out. I don't know of any girl that has this problem in real life :P
3: The description in the summary that says "and then she meets a mysterious hot bad boy who she is inexplicably drawn to"(or something like that) - ENOUGH!
4: Paranormal romance - I miss the days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel..those were actually GOOD stories!
5: Dystopia filled with teen romancey angst - This stuff is getting old :P
6: Insta-Love - Really, this crap is SOOO dull
7: Erotica - No...just NO
8: Handling rape in a shoddy way(hate that)
9: Sexist/racist/homophobic promoting works
10 - Any story that preaches a set of beliefs to the nth degree or disses a type of belief (I like books that talk about religion and stuff but I don't want them screamed at me- just like not all people of the same political party don't agree on everything, neither do people who believe a certain way- so stop telling me you're version is the only one in existence).
