February 8th: Book Trends You’re Tired Of
— What are some things you are tired of seeing that are trends in publishing? Maybe something that pops up on a lot of covers these days, or the popularity of certain tropes in a particular genre? Let it out!

I’m particularly tired of seeing random people on book covers. It wouldn’t be as much of a problem if the people actually looked like the main character(s). That’s only in a perfect world. Here are some examples:

Paper Towns

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)(The Hunger Games)

Bajo la misma estrella

 

 

 

 

 

 

(The Fault In Our Stars)

 

Do wszystkich chłopców, których kochałam (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)(To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before)

Oddam ci słońce(I’ll Give You The Sun)


That’s a wrap! What are some book trends you’re tired of? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5Ws!

  1. The After-Room (The Apothecary #3) by Maile Meloy-Tween

The After-Room (The Apothecary, #3)

I love this book series! The first two books were amazing and I’m looking forward to this one. There won’t be a review since it’s a Tween book.


2.Counting Thyme by Melanie Conklin-Tween

Counting Thyme

This book sounded amazing! It’s based around a girl and her family.They have to move so her brother can try out a new cancer drug trial. I bet it’ll be great. There won’t be a review due to the genre.


3. Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella-Young Adult/Teen

Finding Audrey

I’m finally reading this book!! It’s been out since last June and I’m just now reading it. I hope I’ll enjoy it. The reviews on Goodreads are an average of 3.8/5 stars so it’s probably not the best. You’ll see what I think in the review 🙂


4.More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

More Happy Than Not

This is another book that’s been out for a bit. Since June of last year as well. This one has better review average but a tougher topic. I’m eager to finally read it! I will let you know what I think in my review.


That’s a wrap! Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Are any of  these books now on your TBR? Let me know all of this in the comments below if you wish.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Library Book Hauls!!

Totally Should’ve Book Tag!!

Hello everyone!! It’s finally Friday!! In honor of it being Friday, I decided to do a book tag. Nobody officially tagged me to do this. I actually found it by looking at the “book tag” tag in the Reader. This tag seems to be answering “totally should’ve” questions with a  book that fits it best. Without further ado, let’s begin!

Totally Should've

1) Totally Should’ve Gotten A Sequel.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell needs a sequel!! Many can argue that Carry On is the sequel. In some ways it is, in others it isn’t. Fangirl needs a sequel that’s about Levi and Cath. I honestly need more of their adorable relationship. The Fanfic was interesting and pretty adorable but I only enjoyed it shaped around the romance of Levi and Cath. Not by it self.

2) Totally Should’ve Had a Spin-Off Series.

This question is way too hard! There are so many series’ that need a spin-off.

3)An Author Who Should Totally Write More Books.

There are so many authors that fit this!! I’m going to say J.K. Rowling. Her writing is absolutely amazing. Look at the popularity of Harry Potter! Nothing could ever be better than Harry Potter but she should still write more!

4) A Character Who Totally Should’ve Ended Up With Someone Else.

I definitely love Harry and Ginny but I feel like Harry and Chu could’ve been pretty adorable too. Just my opinion.

5) Totally Should’ve Ended Differently.

The Hunger Games series. Mockingjay just ended so abruptly. It definitely needed more of a gradual ending than a “And then they lived happily ever after”

6)Totally Should’ve Had a Movie Franchise.

All the books that I can think of already have their own movies.

7)Totally Should’ve Had a TV Show.

I feel like the Hunger Games or Harry Potter would make pretty good TV shows. There would definitely be lots of cliffhangers/suspense.

8)Totally Should’ve Had Only One POV

I don’t know… I absolutely love reading different views.

9) Totally Should’ve Had a Cover Change.

This isn’t the Paper Towns book I can buy but this is absolutely terrible. It definitely needs a cover change.

10)Totally Should’ve Kept the Original Cover.

The Paper Towns cover above is one of them. Why would someone put that as a cover of a pretty good book?!

11) Totally Should’ve Stopped At Book One

I haven’t finished the Divergent series but have heard how the last book really messed the series up. Maybe the Divergent series should’ve stopped at book 1 or 2 so the series wasn’t ruined. Just a thought…


Since this tag hasn’t been done by very many people, I’m actually going to tag some bloggers.
