YO. ARE YA’LL READY FOR A RANT?! (I’m not really going to rant… more like a petty complaining session).
The Good Guy Can’t Win.
WHYYYYY? People in general don’t care for love triangles, but when there is one, you know what makes me hate it even more? The protagonist getting with the bad boy. This doesn’t apply to just love triangles, either. Maybe because it’s over done, but I’m tired of it. I’m tired of the bad boy with the heart of gold that he only shows to the MC. Good guys need love, too.
I get it. Sometimes secrets are necessary. But not when your life is on danger and not when you can easily talk it out. I mostly see this in contemporary romances and fantasies and I don’t understand. I don’t know why this secret is so huge that you’re willing to ruin a relationship/put your life in danger.
Let Me Demonstrate How Much I Don’t Know Magic By Perfectly Executing The Most Difficult Spell In All Of History Ever After Just Hearing About It Today (Special Snowflakes).
^ That whole paragraph was a rant in itself. It just bugs me. I don’t know how to built a house, but don’t worry, I’ll build the bestest house you’ve ever seen in your life! But I don’t know How to build a house. Why are authors so afraid to make their characters work for it? Nobody is good at everything that they do.
Or any dystopian ever.
We’ve Been Best Friends Since We Were Five And I Have Never Been Attracted To Hi… Is that Him With His Shirt Off O.O ?
Boys and girls can be just friends. I mean, they can fall in love, too, but that’s doesn’t happen all the time. And the way it’s portrayed, it’s so random and underdeveloped. It’s just they’re normal one day and she decided to put on some makeup and oh my god where has she been all my life?
Book: All books ever. Don’t make me choose one.
I Won’t Put Any Romance In This Book, But The Blurb On The Cover On The Book Shall Describe This As “The Most Romantic Book Of All Time”.
This is a recent one for me, but I’ve been reading a few books that advertise themselves as “romantic” when there is no romance. At all. DON’T LIE TO ME.
Do any of these get on your nerves? Did I miss any? Let me know in the comments below!
