I absolutely love this post on YA dealbreakers, aka what will turn you off reading a novel.
4. weakass heroine
i hesitated to put this one on the deal breaker list, because it seems so obvious. it’s like saying, “oh man, if a YA book is straight up nazi propaganda, FORGETABOUTIT.”
then i remembered twilight and how it sold a zillion copies and then i wondered if stephenie meyer could write a book lauding the aryan nation and call it “whitelight” and still turn it into a best-selling franchise and then i had to numb my pain with some bourbon.
If you click through it is even funnier. There are pictures. Thanks, Nova, for the link!
My dealbreakers include fantasy (not all fantasy) and second person narrative (all of it). You?
