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: overshadowed. Which books, characters, or writers have been overshadowed? Is a book’s reputation larger than its actual merit? Has one superstar book eclipsed a writer’s other works? Has a character become so popular they force the writer to overuse them or keep them around too long?
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.
