Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned…just kidding.
For some reason, there are people out there who think I am the perfect book blogger. I don’t know what makes them think this because my life can be described best as “a hotbed of stress.” What is it like being content, stress-free, and satisfied? Don’t look at me, because I surely can’t tell you! HAHAHAHAHAhaha.
I know that it seems like I disappeared on all of you guys out of absolutely nowhere, but I was very stressed and tired (and, in actuality, I am STILL stressed and tired), but I’m back now, and, hopefully, I won’t be taking any more hiatuses like I have been.
MARCH WILL BE BETTER I SAY.
But, today, I have a tag for you that was definitely made for me because I get to talk about my unpopular bookish opinions? And rant a lot? WHAT A TREAT.
Today is Valentine’s Day, and while other people are getting mushy-gushy by talking about books they love or listing the reasons why they love books or their favorite ships in books, I shall stand out by talking about thriller and horror books I’ve fallen in love with, and you really must read immediately.
Because I like to think of myself as a lover and expert of the genre, I thought the best way to express that love was to recommend some books. This is my Valentine’s Day, people
I mean, we bookworms tend to scoff and roll our eyes at book tropes because it makes books boring and unoriginal, but at the same time, a great and original book can utilize a trope so well that we rethink all our life decisions.
So, I decided I’d talk about some popular tropes in YA novels and whether I like or dislike them, inspired by Cait @ Paper Fury’s post asking if book tropes are always bad! Complete with loads and loads of gifs because I can.
For instance, I’ll walk into a bookstore planning to buy these extremely specific books, and end up walking out with five books I wasn’t even interested in when I walked in. What a talent!!!
Sometimes, being indecisive can also mean that I change my mind about books often.
Maybe I rated a book a bit higher because the hype swept me up. Maybe I’ve had more time to think about it, and my opinion has gone up or down. Maybe the first thing that comes to mind when I see a star rating of a book I’ve read is “What the actual heck was I thinking?”
Today, I thought it’d be fun to look back at some books I’ve read over the years that I have different opinions on!
What is better than looking back and realizing you’ve made objectively terrible decisions?
