Talk about HEIGHTS amirite ✨✨✨✨✨
So let’s talk about books you HATE. ✨✨✨✨✨
Obviously we all hate to be forced to read The Scarlet Letter or whatever in class, nobody likes being forced to read! But some books are just a plague on literature. In my case my pet peeve in literature is a poor representation of relationships. FOR EXAMPLE: 📜TWILIGHT: a true pestilence to the very nature of good literature. A protagonist like a damp paper towel and a soppy teenage love story where nothing happens. But the real problem IMO is that it 1) pushes the idea that having sex before marriage is wrong, when TELLING PEOPLE THAT NEVER EVER WORKS EVER and it’s honestly terrible and impractical advice, and 2) glorifies an abusive relationship. The guy is 110 years old, controlling, stalky, pushy, and also oh yeah he WANTS TO EAT HER. and people genuinely do not know the difference sometimes between what is cute and what is abusive. Like the thing where he watches her sleep...disturbing, not cute.
📜WUTHERING HEIGHTS: same deal. Horrible people do horrible things for several generations and it’s called the greatest love story ever. I don’t understand the appeal AT ALL. 📜50 Shades. The BDSM community didn’t deserve that slight and Grey is a creep. Remember that time where he tracked her phone to a club because she drunk dialed him and brought her to his house? Well NEITHER DOES SHE BECAUSE SHE BLACKED OUT. 📜Game of Thrones. I love the show but hate the books because lots of male writers seem all too eager to have sexual assault shoved in anywhere because THEY DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT. They think it will never happen to them. So to them it’s no big deal. Which is really a very dangerous attitude. 📜There’s this one called Chloe and I was actually the editor (not that I got credit. Or paid.) and it was about childhood sexual abuse but it was just SO OVER THE TOP. Like she was trying to cram every horrible story she’d heard into one girl’s life. And at some point it’s just like...why. I still have nightmares from that stupid book. ✨✨✨✨✨
There are lots of books I don’t like that are more “meh, to each their own”. But not these.
What about you?
Lol i can’t believe they were all dancing without music playing in the background😂
