I got some really thought provoking comments that helped me to understand why some of you
Then I got this comment . . .
. . . which made me wonder what other books I avoid. Now I'm not talking about how I don't read dinosaur erotica, or how Hannah "can't do witches." I'm talking about books that you avoid because they make you mad, or scared, or unhappy. So, basically books that make you feel things you don't want to feel.
Other than books that are going to try to make me cry, I think the only books I really avoid are "issues" books. I don't read very much contemporary because of this. I just don't want to read about someone doing all the bad things and being miserable. I mean, I know it's "realistic," but I don't want it. I WANT NONE OF IT! It just makes me depressed, and stabby.
And I'm already stabby enough. I definitely don't need help with that. OH! I thought of another one! I don't like reading about super gory, murder stuff where the "hero" is basically evil. I don't mind horror or gore or scary things if the MC is basically good, and good is winning, but I've had to put a few books down because they made me feel too icky.
Evil winning is not something I want to deal with in my free time. Nope.
So what about you? What kind of books do you avoid like homework on the weekends?
Less stabbily yours,
