It’s the last Six for Sunday of January – one month into 2019 already! This is a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot! Today’s theme is:
Bookish Beginnings: Bookish Hates
- Cover changes mid series
- Poorly written books, such as those by PC and Kristin Cast, where it’s very clear that the authors wrote it for a class and it isn’t good enough for publication!
- Books about abuse that are too graphic or uncomfortable to read, such as Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield. I don’t get why people love this book; it’s awful!
- Picture books with no purpose or with poor morals…which leads on to my next point:
- Julia Donaldson
- This is going to be more controversial, but I really dislike books where the diversity is thrown in your face; I like it when characters of different races and sexual orientations are part of the story and it’s just a matter of fact, rather than being such a massive deal. I hope that makes sense!
This was quite an interesting topic to think about; something that one person hates, another may love! What are your bookish hates?
