Review: You & Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes

Literary Snobbery

By whose standards is something deemed as ‘badly written’? Sorry, this is a bit of a rant. I just can’t understand this literary snobbery that is abound. I’ve read a great deal in my reading life and can honestly say, the idea of something being well written or badly written is pretty much an illusion.… Continue reading Literary Snobbery
