What do you think is a subgenre or character trait or plot point or setting whose 15 minutes are up (or way past up)?
I actually find this question pretty difficult but I want to know all of your answers!
It's a character flaw whose 15 minutes I think are up. The female character who has no backbone. OVER IT. Actually, I never liked it, but I AM tired of discovering myself time and again throwing down a book because the female is whiny and emotionally stunted and relies on a man to make her feel like somebody.
Take Bella Swan in Twilight. Or Sienna in Devoured by Emily Snow. Or Luce in Fallen by Lauren Kate.
I am ready for more empowered women.
What about you? What idea do YOU think has worn out its 15 minutes?
