This year, I’ve noticed a couple of book trends…and these are common. I do believe 2012 was the year of Titantic retellings. But this year seems to be the year of the hood. Robin hood. Female Robin Hood to be exact. Look:
Are trends a bad thing? Yes and No. A) It makes you wonder if you missed a memo. Is this the 100th celebratory year for Robin Hood? B) It makes you compare. Her Robin Hood was this way, but the other author’s Robin Hood was that way. I’m sorry folks, only one can really come out a winner. C) It makes you feel like I’ve read this before and I’m so over it.
And so I ask you, what trends have you noticed this year?
