Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a “hop”. The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another.
For this week’s Book Blogger Hop question, C. Lee @ cleemckenziebooks asked:
Is there anything that drives you bonkers when you’re reading a book and makes you want tell the author a thing or two?
What a fun question!
There are a number of things that drive me a bit bonkers when I am reading. But I’d have to say that one thing at the top of my list is the bully to love interest trope.
I am SO over this trope…. Not that I was every into it in the first place. I just cannot stand this at all now. If this pops up in a book I’m reading, I will DNF it.
I think that this trope is 1) incredibly overdone, and 2) totally inappropriate, especially in YA when that audience is just really learning how to set boundaries and such.
I would love to ask authors to stop focusing so much on this trope and instead, focus on healthy relationships. The world needs more of that.
Thanks for reading!
