Happy Saturday to all you amazing people! I hope you have an incredible weekend ahead of you!
For this week’s Tuesday’s Tidbit, I wrote a post talking about how bloggers shouldn’t be afraid to post their most controversial or unpopular opinions, so I thought I’d follow it up by posting some of mine!
Here’s the thing: I have a ton of unpopular opinions, so this is gonna have to be a two part series!
So, without any further ado, the first set of my most unpopular opinions! (Please, don’t judge me too harshly!)
PSA: This post will probably be longer and rambly-er than my usual posts, but I hopepromise? it’ll be worth it!
So, a little while ago, there was a bit of a shit-storm on book-Twitter. Usually, when I comment on drama like that, I leave it on Twitter. But, in this case, my thoughts are a little too big for 280 characters, so now, you all get the pleasure of seeing my thoughts on an issue that seems to pop up again and again in the book world.
So, without any further ado, here’s my two cents on the whole issue.
I see a lot of people, particularly on Twitter, mentioning their pet peeves in books, or tropes that they’ve seen so much, they can’t stand the sight of it one more time. And usually, though I understand where they’re coming from, I 100% disagree!
Last week, I talked about my 5 most traumatic character deaths, the ones that left me in a weeping heap of emotions that made me want to both never read a book again, but also read every single book by that author because HOW CAN PAPER AND INK MAKE ME FEEL SO MUCH?!
And while I definitely appreciate those well- written deaths, there have been some character deaths that have been… well, less than gut-wrenching. For whatever reason, whether the character or her arc weren’t developed enough, or it was just made to feel like a cheap, meaningless death, these deaths just left me wanting more (more what? More death? Better death??? What does this say about me?).
So, without further ado, here are my 5 most disappointing character deaths.
