Tell me about it! And the funny thing is that people complain so much but nothing seems to change!

Honestly I avoid the romance section. It’s all just so cliché and boring as hell (at least in the books I have read)

Im gonna discuss something pretty mature so if I need to remove this just let me know and I will immediately, hopefully this is ok?
I completely agree with the list but I’d like to add (and I’m sorry if it was mentioned already, I skimmed it due to difficulty reading long text from some attention problems) the one that really truly upsets me and makes me drop it completely is

TW for discussion of trauma, r*pe, and adult activities

when a character who has been abused, particularly one who has been sexually abused, assaulted, or raped, has clear signs of PTSD that are magically cured through the power of love or far FAR worse through a steamy night with generic love interest. This is one of the most disgusting tropes I’ve seen honestly. Even if it’s completely nonsexual, the idea of curing trauma instantly with Mr Hottie makes me drop that series instantly and for good.
