My friend, Jackie, from Bookworm Cafe posted her responses to this challenge during July, so it put it on my own radar. I decided to take it up for the month of August. The challenge originated, it appears, with Good Books & Good Wine, so credit for the prompts goes to them!
TODAY’S PROMPT: TELL US YOUR DEAL BREAKERS
I am making an assumption that this means in regards to what I won’t read about. I think the only deal breaker that I have at all is that I do not read erotica for any reason. I am not a highly sexual person and I find that I do not want to read it either. I am not a prude, so I don’t mind if a book has sex scenes, but you know darn well that erotica is all about those sex scenes. I am not all about that, so I avoid these types of books. They have a purpose, but not for me. I don’t think I have any other deal breakers. I tend to be open to reading any type of book because I have never got attached to one particular genre. Mystery is the closest to being my favorite genre and that was just within the last year. Due to not having a favorite genre, I like to read a variety. I don’t mind insta-love, things that usually have trigger warnings, really happy or overly dark books, or things that may annoy another reader. I don’t have time to be bothered… seriously? I just can’t be bothered by it all. I rather read it and determine how I feel about it at this point of my life. I review almost anything because I know that SOMEONE ELSE may like it, if I didn’t. So I have no hard and fast deal-breakers outside of that pesky erotica. I just can’t get myself to read that genre. Otherwise, I am wide open and ready to read whatever crosses my path.
