What makes a book bad? (and complaining about books we've read in the past) in Splash Fall 2021
When was the last time you closed a book and sat there wondering why you finished reading it? What books have you been forced to slog through by school or a well-meaning teacher? Well, here's your place to complain about them! We'll be talking about bad books we've read and why we disliked them so much. Come prepared with your biblio-biography! Topics will include: character arcs (or lack thereof), forced romance, idiot plots, Mary Sues, deus ex machina, storyline pacing, and writers who doggedly resist improving their writing.
