Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.
Have you ever read a book or books you would consider "toxic" because of the effect it (they) had on you? If so, which one(s)?
I think most Colleen Hoover books are very toxic and God awful. I think the amount of misogynistic and sexist characters (paired with awful writing) in her books is enough for me to stay away from her books. I'll never understand why she is so popular and well loved in the book community and it worries me to think that young readers could pick up those books and think that those relationships are something to strive for. Other than that, I cannot think of many specific books on the top of my head that are toxic. I think the New Adult genre is something that has a lot of flaws, many of the books romanticize toxic relationships and I think it needs to be fixed.
