Key Words In Book Titles I Will Not Read


There are some key words in book titles that just drive me away without any further reading. If these words appear in a title, subtitle or blurb, I WILL walk away. Also, the genre is in there, too. I only read Science Fiction, military history and occasionally non-fiction. Genres that I will not read include Fantasy and the newest contender, FanFic (Fan Fiction). UGH.

Magic
Sorcerer
Crystal
Mage
Dragon
Knight

(Note: ‘Knight’ has become problematic because, Jack Campbell)

The picture on the book will also keep the book from being read. Some of those images are:

Witches/Mages/long flowing robes/knights
Horses/unicorns/dragons
Castles
Glowing crystals/balls (GLOWING BALLS?!)

(Note: DAMMIT! Another problematic image is a sword because, Michael R. Hicks)

This list is fluid and will change with time. But it’s a start…
