Are there any genres that you avoid like the plague?

I tend to avoid any books having to do with politics or politicians and ones involving “controversial issues”. My main reason is that, for me, any reading that I do voluntarily is for fun. Books on big, heavy topics aren’t fun for me to read. So, basically, I only read them if they’re assigned in class… and sometimes not even then!

I also avoid zombies – zombie novels, zombie comics, zombie movies, zombie TV shows – they’re all out. The sole exception has been Max Brooks’ The Zombie Survival Guide, which I read cover to cover three times and then promptly gave to my father and resigned myself to not sleeping for the next week or so.
