Top Ten Tuesday: Turn-offs

~The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.~

Wow...its been FOREVER since I've done one of these...but since I have nothing really to post today and I'm bored in class, I shall share my top ten list of the turn-offs of books that well...turn me off and I may toss the book a time or two...

(There is no order)

1. Animal cruelty.
As you all know I hate this in movies, but the same can be poked at in books. Makes me mad and want to cry.

2. Love Triangles that last too long.
I don't mind love a good love triangle, but when it lasts WAY too long I can't handle it. Especially when it runs into multiple books. GAH.

3. Forced Instant Love.
Yes, there are some instances that people fall in love on the spot, but I HATE it when it seems forced. 

4. Books with Movie Covers. 
Dammit. I love movies, but its so annoying and cheesy when they put the cover of the movie adaptations onto the book. NO! They are two different entities. 

5. The Parents always seem to be MIA.
Yes, some people have absent parents...but for the whole novel? Barely a peep out of the parents is so unrealistic.

6. Stereotypical Steampunk.
This is a personal preference...but I have a hard time like the A-typical steampunk novel. Nope...can't do it. I do like the game BioShock though...

7. Sex on Every Page.
I love my romances...I do. However, I want some plot thrown in there please. Thank you.

8. Perfect Characters.
You know of this hatred I have, so I will not ramble on this topic, because I will never stop...

9. Overwriting.
I am bad with this myself from time to time, but I edit my writings (unless it is a challenge and I can't), but overly describing things and going into WAY too many details is annoying and makes me sigh.

10. Ending To Long/Ending To Abrupt.
Okay, there is no explanation needed.
