I want to start this post by first and foremost stating that I’m the least Grinch-y person out there. I am all about the holidays. I absolutely love the time with family and gift giving.
Even more, I love the break from seeing my adorable little 6th graders every day. Let’s be real, at this point in the year, they’re starting to morph into 7th graders and that really hurts.
But anyway! I thought this top five Wednesday sounded like a lot of fun because there are always things that I jokingly pick on books about.
Here’s the prompt for this Wednesday’s T5W:
Since being a grinch is a funny thing, try not to make this serious topics that make you angry (like lack of diversity or abusive relationships in fiction, etc) as this is supposed to be more of a petty bookish things you hate. This can be stuff about covers, dumb tropes, etc. Have fun with it.
1. No series numbers on books.
When I’m looking for books and I haven’t completed the series, can we please put the numbers on the books so I know what number it is in the series? I hate picking up book five, when I’m looking for book two. *Glares at Sarah J. Maas*
2. Cover changes.
Ok, ok. I get that sometimes cover changes need to happen. However, can we wait until we finish the series please? I will absolutely by the other covers, but can I at least complete the current series before you just switch things up? I’m not a flexible person, you really need to work with me on this, authors.
3. The obvious love interest.
We all love a good romance, we can’t deny it. But can we stop introducing characters for the sake of giving our main a love interest? Look, I get it, things get a lot steamier with a love interest, but sometimes can’t a girl just get a badass fantasy novel without the love?
Please, no more. It was fun, but we’ve killed it.
Look, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Jenn was right, there isn’t a single book about witches that is actually good.*
*The Witchlands series is not about witches, but people with specific elemental abilities.
