What the Feck?! (WTF?!)Every Monday we will post a book related topicthat had us thinking WTF?! while reading a bookor talking to others in the book community.
Book Covers too Sexy for Pinterest?!
A while back I got a noticed from Pinterest that my YUMMY MEN board was not safe for public viewing (I’m paraphrasing here). Ok so my Yummy Men board with half naked dudes was removed. I understand that. Some tweens or grandmothers might get scandalized by them. No problem. That’s what Tumblr is for. LOL
But when I was catching up on pinning my latest reviews to my account I had another notice that I had pins that needed to be taken down for the previous reason. The only thing I had left on my account was book reviews and book con pictures. So I thought ok I’ll deleted my erotica reviews. Those were the only sexy pics I had and they were BOOK COVERS. Covers that Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads and other PUBLIC sites have up for the GENERAL PUBLIC to view when purchasing books.
Then I thought screw it. I’ll just deactivate my Pinterest account and not deal with the headache of what’s too sexy for a book cover. I didn’t really use my account that much anyway. I only opened the account to see what it was all about and have another way for peeps to follow the blog reviews.
After stepping back from writing this post I’ve activated my account so you guys can look around and be the judge.
Are you scandalized by the book covers?
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
