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: deal breakers. Are there plot points, or character aspects, or subject matter that you nope right out of – whether you know ahead of time, or encounter them while you’re reading? For me, it’s when a book establishes itself in the real world, then violates real-world rules. Once a book violates real-world rules of time, distance, resources, etc., it turns preposterous, and it can’t win me back.
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. Images related to a post are fine, though.
