I’ve decided that i’m going to do a tag today.
1. Which tropes in a book annoy you the most?
This is a cliche answer but it is the love triangle trope. Luckily i don’t read books with that trope frequentlg but when i do see it, it is often done terribly, love triangles are not bad but they are done so terribly that people just write them off as a bad idea. I might write something about this in the future
2.Which writer do you think is overhyped
I’m going to go with a book that i thought was overhyped because i haven’t read enough of this person’s work but it’s the invisible life of Addie LaRue. I thought it was overhyped. I thought it was going to be an explosive read and would change my life but frankly all i got from it was just vibes and nothing substantive. Also the boy, the fox, the mole, the horse. I gave this a positive review on my blog but looking back that book was quite basic and i let people’s thoughts on the book cloud my judgement and how i felt about it
3.Least favourite book you’ve read since you started bloggging.
Shadow and bone
4. What is a terrible ending that ruined an otherwise quality book.
I have a handful here. I don’t enjoy the way Chimamanda ngozie Adichie ends her novels, i’ve read Americanah, purple hibiscus and half of a yellow sun and while i loved all of them except Americanah, i notice that i did not like their endings.
The secret life of Baba Segi’s wives
5. Which fictional character do you wish was not killed off.
Lightsong from Warbreaker
6. What are some of your bookish pet peeves
People who don’t return books or if they do return them, it is in horrible condition, i personally think that it is extremely disrespectful when i give a book to someone to take read and they return it to me as though the book had been with them for 30 years and during that time they had carried it through a warzone.
7. What are some books that you think should have more recognition
So long a letter by Mariama Ba. I’m actually reading this in school in my literature class and i was expecting to hate it but i really LOVE it.
8. What are your thoughts on censhorship and banning books
If a book espouses dangerous ideologies and beliefs such a racism, sexism, xenophobia as well just misinformation that could hurt a vulnerable group of people and others, then it should be banned.
