~Happy Reading! ~


  1. Along the lines of #3..."if you liked Fifty Shades of Grey..."

    Any character cheating on a spouse

    I have a blog dedicated to sports books and I hate the sales pitch that "even non-sports fans will enjoy this book."

  2. I agree with 3-6 and 10, don't like those topics either!

    My TTT:

  3. I'm not a non-fiction fan either. Great list!

  4. Non-fiction books are also a turnoff for me. ):
    As for music books, I agree with you, with the exception of one book: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales. You should try it too! :D
    Awesome list!

    My TTT

  5. I agree with all of these, I really forgot to add slut shaming on my list. I hate it and I always check reviews for sexism before adding a book to my shelf.
