This weekly book meme officiated in November 2013 and is still going stong! Every week there is a topic and your list will be based off this topic. For further information check out the Goodreads Page.
The theme this week is:
BOOK TRENDS YOU’RE TIRED OF
This is a trend that readers have been complaining about for a very long time now. When the characters fall in love within the first 100 pages when they didn’t know each other before, it is totally unbelievable.
Changing the size of books
In Australia books are generally releases in a larger size and then the smaller size later. Therefore, if you’re unlucky you will get a series where the books are different sizes and it looks weird on the bookshelf.
Faces that look weird on the cover
Some faces on book covers work really well. But, then there are covers like this.
Marketed as “the next”
I am someone who will say that a book is Book A meets Book B, but when its marketed as the next Hunger Games or the next Twilight… that gets on my nerves. I’ve already read that book, I don’t need to read “the next” one.
I don’t mind love triangles when they’re done well. However, its become common these days. It’s just being overdone and therefore it is getting tired.
That’s it for this weeks Top 5 Wednesday. What is a trend in the book community that you’re tired of? Let me know in the comments.
Keep Calm and Read On,
