It was coming from her closet." p 20*

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's topic is: Top 6 Things That Instantly Make Me Not Want to Pickup a Book

*in no particular order

6. BODICE RIPPING COVERS--basically no historical romances for me!
no regular contemporary romances either!
this is hit or miss, but I usually pass these up since they don't seem to tell you much.
I used to avoid all illustrated covers for some reason, but now that I love them, I might still pass on one if it's just kind of blah looking.
not a fan of the color, so if there's just too much of it I might not pick it up right away. That being said, I won't avoid it entirely! I mean, I have at least 3 copies of Stephanie Garber's PINK B&N Once Upon a Broken Heart! Lol.
if the cover description gives enough info and I see that the hero and heroine are like decades apart in age, I probably won't bother to read it because the really big age differences tend to throw me off...unless one's a vampire who is 200+ years old but still looks the same age as the other! I am okay with that much! Lol. Weird I know.
