VIDEO: Hank Green Rants About Books

Hank Green, brother to The Fault in Our Stars novelist John Green and one half of the creators behind the Vlogbrothers YouTube Channel, has created a video called “Ranting about Books.”

In the video embedded above, Green shares his complaints on the way books are being published. Some of his gripes include:

    • Sharing spoilers on the jacket flap copy.
    • Not explicitly printing the series title for books that belong in a series.
    • Book covers featuring “decapitated YA fiction ladies.”

What do you think? Do you share the same grievances?
