Eschew these seven words

A NY Times blog on books posted “The seven deadly words of book reviewing.” I have a young adult review column coming out in the Sunday Oregonian, but I can’t lay my hands on what I sent my editor. Let’s hope it didn’t include the words: poignant, compelling, intriguing, eschew, craft, muse, lyrical. Pretty sure I’m good on everything with the possible exception of compelling.

Readers added their own words. What would you add?
