Books are better than people. Conversely, I also dump on a lot of books; mostly romance.

Academics: Gaskell's North and South is a social novel which focuses on the differences between the gentry and agricultural workers.

Me: Nah, Yeah, Nah.

The heroine gave her sexual satisfaction greater priority than the lives of her crew.

The author's positivity about the female body radiates off the page...

She is therefore unqualified to write this book.

I imagine that this is what the assignment was like from that one guy who took "creative writing" at college.

ShyBookOwl LOL this line gave me a good laugh! Just curious, is it Friday where you are? It's Thursday morning for me, and while it obviously doesn't actually matter what day we play, I'm just nosy 😊 3mo

Bear | Marian Engel

It is with good reason that this is a Canadian classic. It's beautifully written and poignant. Just one question: why a bear?

Fifty Shades of Groundhog Day, but will do in a pinch if you're stuck at the airport.

Masked Intentions | Diana Bold

It was an alright read but what really let it down was the author trying to cram too many plot elements into the one story.

There was a point in this book where tropes became clichés and then another point where those clichés became drama for the sake of drama.

IT WAS NIGHT AGAIN. The Waystone Inn lay in silence, and it was a silence of three parts.

One to Watch: A Novel | Kate Stayman-London

The author really phoned this one in; it's essentially just an anthology of tweets and emails that rode the body-positivity hype-train to mass-market.

A Student-Teacher romance that promises to delve into the moral and psychological ramifications of a forbidden romance, but uses Christian themes as an excuse to never delve beyond the superficial.

Extreme Exposure | Pamela Clare

Pamela Clare's I-Team Series is referenced throughout Alison Kent's 'Guide to Writing Erotic Romance', so I thought I'd give it a go. What I learnt from reading ' Extreme Exposure' - the first book in Clare's series - was that Alison Kent's book was also a waste of Money.

This book made me feel things I wasn't ready to feel.

Hitchhikerbooks Understandable. It wasn't what everyone made it out to be. Over-hyped 5mo

The only thing that could have made this book better was if they had given you a bucket of free ice cream on checkout.

If you removed all the sex scenes, this is essentially a story about a woman who lost her job and then went home.

If you enjoy never really knowing what is going on, being nauseated by character action, and continually asking questions like "Who the Fuck is Bailey?" trample old ladies to get this book if you have to; it will blow your freakin' mind.

This is what clickbait would look like if it were in bookform.
