Hi guys! Sorry I wasn’t around yesterday – I’m still recovering from having such a hard time and I’m very up and down…but I’m trying to force myself to carry on and get through it. So here’s another T5W post, and today we’re going to be talking about Book Trends I’m Tired Of!

Easy, cliche romance. I actually had a massive rant about TFIOS in college today, so this one was easy.

But it’s not just romance that can be cliche and predictable – so can dystopian!

Sorry guys, I thought this book was overhyped. So that’s my third – overhyped books.

I’m not saying this one was badly written, but it is a love triangle. And so that is my fourth – badly written love triangles.


Goodreads | Amazon

The last one is definitely the worst – bad movie covers. Some are done well (Miss Peregrine’s, for example)..but then there’s this.

What trends niggle you in YA publishing?


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽

      1. I don’t know if you ever read my post where I ranted about Where Futures End, but I really get into why I can’t stand those things there. Particularly since they start Capitalizing and Spelling Kreativvly TEN YEARS from now. SIGH…

    I like a good love triangle when its done right. I hate when they’re thrown into the book just to be there! I’m so tired of romancing mentally abusive relationships! Having a guy/girl tell you what to do and be controlling isn’t romantic!!
