August 2012 Discussion of the month

August Discussion is:

What are some ick factors in a book that disgust you so much that it  ruins the whole book for you?

I know a lot of people have ick issues with kids, ménage sex, pregnant women having sex etc…

I myself will get along with just about anything until some of these urban fantasy’s crosses over into horror. One book I read this year really hit my ick factor. The book had a vampire having sex with a woman and he was using like bobbed wire around his penis, needless to say that just ruined the whole book for me. I don’t think I will ever get that out of my mind.  


  1. I haven't come across anything that I had the ick factor on yet, but bobbed wire on a penis? ewwww! & it sounds like it hurts like hell...lol

  2. honestly, sometimes I can't wrap my head around zombie romances.. zombies aren't vampires and I just can't train my mind to think of rotting flesh, sometimes I guess it can work, but really, I have reservations... Book Savvy Babe

  3. HA! You just have to look at my reviews to know I'll read and love just about anything. My one tiny pet peeve are over the top menages.
    3 people? Sure I can get that!
    4? Kinda pushing it, but whateva!
    5-6-7 People? No way! LOL.
    I can read about aliens, vampires, werewolves, and cyborgs all day long but when you have 6 people getting down? I just can't wrap my head around that. ;)

  4. I can read about anything. An author I loved, but no longer read her series because it lost it's plot and fun factor, had several paranomral beings that had various sexual organs and or multitudes or sexual organs. That was just weird!

  5. I'm good with most stuff, I do have a hard time with the idea that humiliation is a turn on. depends I suppose how how much of the story is devoted to that.

  6. Zombies. I just can't get myself to read them.

  7. What about romance that just so happens to have zombies in it? I LOVED Reawakening by Charlotte Stein. The leads are still human trying to survive in the post zombie-apocolypse world.

  8. I dont think I could handle Zombies being romantic either.

  9. My "ICK" meter goes off when reading Zombie romance as well, somehow even when they are set up as fun like Mark Henry did with his main character Amanda Feral or sexy as the main character who is portrayed by Bryn Davis in Rachel Caine's new Revivalist series it just does not compute for me. Plus keep hearing all the growling noises from The Night of The Living Dead in my head when I read the word Zombie and seeing all the blood and gore they wreak on their human victims when in a feeding frenzy.

    Pretty much anything else I can get around, even multiple appendages and strange genital equipment that sounds like it would be painful to be on the receiving end of.
