Is (bookish) Hype All Bad??//ft pros and cons+lists (because that’s really all my blog is, lol)

Welcome, welcome- my beloved nemesis’, despised friends’ and unknown strangers’ from the far off corners of the internet. Welcome to my blog!

IF YOU’RE A PART OF THE BOOKISH COMMUNITY ONLINE, YOU WOULD HAVE HEARD OF THE INCREDIBLE HYPE TRAIN THAT [MOST] PEOPLE JUMP ON

-others chose to roll their eyes and relax comfortably between their backlist loves-

the hype has been both mocked and praised, called misleading and been compared to the ‘guiding light of the north star’ simultaneously- especially in goodreads reviews. this really made me wonder, is the hype that is misplaced or is the pedestal we put certain books upon misplaced?

hype is subjective. it doesn’t always work, but when it does, it’s MARVELOUS and 100% better than romance. pfft, forgot twinkling stars when they kiss, think about YOUR WHOLE WORLD CHANGING WHEN THE BOOK MEETS YOUR EXPECTATIONS!! and the obsession that will consume you, ahh!!

*I’m pretty sure that Kaz would beg to differ haha
