Hello bookish people, I hope this post finds you all cozy and reading! Top 5 Wednesday this week covers:
December 6th – Bookish Things You’re a Grinch About
— 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.
Let us get into it:
1. Millionaire/Billionaire Stories and Book Cover
Every time I come across a Contemporary Romance with a picture of a half naked man on the cover, most times the synopsis is a woman meeting a millionaire or billionaire. I would sometimes just burst out laughing. Why is it always a millionaire and why is he is always naked when the majority of the storyline he is in a suit?
2. World Building in EV- ERYTHING
3. People Using Books ONLY for Decoration
I am being pretty petty when I ask you why do you have 1000 unread books on your bookshelf arranged in colours, putting the popular releases to the front yet you keeping adding to the pile. When are you going to read all those books? Plus buying books you know nothing of not bothering to read the summary to the back? Wow (OK it is your money!)
4. Disrespect for Libraries
Folks who roll eyes at library books- no wonder libraries are dying, which is quite ashamed.
5. Leave Me Alone, Yes I Dog Ear My Books (At Least I Read)
It is not a decoration!
