Things we hate, media edition

We spend a portion of every show talking about what we love in the books we read, but what about what we hate? We share our dislikes in books, favorite and least favorite romance tropes, books and shows other people loved but we couldn’t get into, and what we don’t enjoy in movies we watch. Links mentioned:

Eating lately

Sarah made a new kitchen purchase and Abby had a failed grain bowl experience.
