The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: what books have made you angry? We’ve all been there, but the interesting thing is why. Wasted potential, killed a favorite character, sexist/racist/other-ist, bad editing, whiffed the ending? The reasons are endless, so what are some that angried up your blood?

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).

upcoming topics:
10/17: books as gifts (h/t to lebkuchen)
10/24: geography pt. 1 – setting as character
