Once again, another book tag stolen from Kris from Boston Book Reader (thanks!) If you love books and fun bookish tags and posts, then her blog is the place to go! I’ve been really trying to up the amount of bookish themed content on my blog recently. I’m writing this in April and over the coming months, I have more book reviews scheduled than I have done in the past half a year! I’m really enjoying reading at the moment (I’m currently reading When Breath Becomes Air – if you’ve read it, please talk to me!) and blogging more about books takes me back to my roots in a way. Books are the reason I blog; without them I wouldn’t be here so I’ll always be eternally grateful to those wonderful little masterpieces.
Book trends are changing all the damn time. With new ones cropping up so frequently that are so popular, everyone wants a bit of the action. But, in the literary world, there will always be certain elements which are not explored enough in books. Similarly, there will also be elements and themes which are explored all to often — although this is mostly down to the fact that they are usually so popular. As book lovers, we don’t all have to love the same genres and themes, it would be hella boring if we did. Some trends work for us and some don’t and today I want to talk about a few trends which I’d like to see more or less of in the book world right now and it is not my intention to offend anyone in this post!
