You shouldn’t do it. Readers shouldn’t have to put up with it. And we shouldn’t have to hear about it. But we do. So friends, today’s post is all about book shaming. What is it? Why does it suck? Why does it matter? This post aims to encourage the celebration of reading anything and all genres.
What’s a TBR pile … and do you already have one?
TBR stands for to be read, referring to the number of books someone wants to read. If you're an avid reader like me, then your TBR pile is practically reaching the moon by now. Every time you make a dent in it, you find shinier, new books to collect. Is there a method to the madness?
If you are a teen writer (like me!), the answer is probably heck ya!
It’s true, J.K. Rowling has absolutely taken over and led the way for YA readers with Harry Potter. Of course, I’m a total Potter Head. But as a writer, your goal should not be to become the “next J.K. Rowling.” That’s how you turn into a copycat.
