Top 5 Bookish Things I’m a Grinch About

Hi again! it’s been a while so I thought I’d so another Top 5 Wednesday. Today’s topic is the books we’re thankful for. In honour of NaNoWriMo wrapping up, we are discussing some authors we’d like to write like. Whether its their writing style, what genre they write in, or how many books they manage to churn out a year!

Top 5 Wednesday was created over on BookTube by the wonderful Laniey at gingerreadslaniey and run by the lovely Sam of Thoughts on Tomes . Also you can check out the Goodreads page for past and future topics.

They are listed in no particular order.

Insta Love

I love a slow burn relationship because it does feel more natural but also has room for angst and all the anxiety that comes with the warm and fuzzy feelings of a new relationship. Aside from fairytales I don’t see the need for this to be a feature of any book. Yes I will admit I complete trash for the whole mate, soulmate trope but I don’t like when they look at each other and bam their both head over heels in love. I do love the whole happy ending, if I’m looking for something fluffy, but guess I’m old fashion and like the whole courting thing.

“She’s Not Like The Other Girls”

For me I feel like this just feeds into the whole idea what women and girls should tear each other down and compete over jobs and man rather than support each other and embrace our differences. Whenever this saying pops up in a book I roll my eyes. I feel like how is insulting other girls a good things? I don’t get it. It’s not romantic and really needs to stop! Please and thank you.

Changing Formats

Movie Covers

I don’t feel like I need to say too much on this one since most readers aren’t too fond of the movie cover but I had to include it. Personally, I don’t like people on my covers so the movie covers always annoy me and the original book cover designs are normally stunning and relate to the book rather than some actor’s face.

Lack of Platonic Relationships Between Boys and Girls


That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know if any of these thing annoy you or some of your bookish pet peeves.
Until next time, happy reading!
