The print in books being a color other than black. Once in a while, I see this happen - there's a specific color scheme on the cover and it carries on in the actual words in the book. I can't decide if I like this or not. Not a lot of examples come to mind, but the mains ones are:
The Wolves Of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater I think that the red and green print are kind of pretty (I haven't read Linger or Forever, but I've flipped through them), but the blue was just okay.
Seasonal Reading. Every time summer rolls around, it seems like people are clamoring for sweet and fluffy "beach" reads. I can totally understand this practice, but for me, I never start reading lighter stuff in the hot season. But then, I like darker material in general, so. *shrug*
I love maps. No, not in real life. I'm the worst with directions, seriously. I could get lost inside a small building. I mean, maps inside books with fantasy worlds. They add to the atmosphere of the book, and I love being able to check back on it once in a while to see where the characters are.
Absolutely beautiful . . . if you didn't immediately recognize where this world is from, let me immediately direct you to the amazing book, Shadow and Bone, friend.
The lack of patience I have with bad books. Okay, maybe "bad" is too strong a word. It just seems that ever since I started reading books to review them, I'm less inclined to give it much of a chance if it's not entertaining me after fifty pages or so. I used to be big on finishing something to matter what, but that's not the case anymore. Sometimes I just have to stop if something is that boring and/or offensive.
|Hmm...I meant this gif to go along with the lack of patience thing, but it gets creepier the longer you look at it.|
