Welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday! This meme was created by gingerreadslainey and is hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes and you can check out the Goodreads group here. This week’s theme is 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!
This is a tough topic, so let’s see what I can come up with.
This is a huge trend nowadays, and I just don’t get it. Look, not that I don’t find them funny, or I’m not interested in reading them, but COME ON! Books like Born a Crime I want more of, but memoirs just for the sake of them being famous people? Yeah…
Again, this one is iffy. Some books are amazing, but some? Totally “pointless“.
I love when my favorite books are optioned for TV or movies, but you know when the book is not even out and there’s already a huge buzz around it because of it? Yeah… I don’t think that’s always positive.
I think these covers are cute! But this is clearly a trend, right? I mean, look at all those legs!!!
I get it, most authors live either in the US, Canada or the UK, but I would like to see more countries featured in contemporary books, and not only for a year abroad or a summer vacation.
