So recently, I’ve gotten back into all these online reading sites. Almost every story/book on them has a happy ending which is a nice change because the last five actual novels I have read have had unsatisfying or sad endings.
I never realised how many different sites there are! At first, I only used wattpad.com but then I heard about booksie.com through an author on wattpad, then there is quizilla and fanfiction.net and most recently I’ve looked at figment.com. I think I’ve been living under a rock, I had no idea about all these different websites!
One thing bad about having a gazillion websites is plagirism. When there is an amazing and popular book on one site, someone copies it and posts it on another site as their own work. It makes it really difficult to find who the original author is and some people end up accusing the wrong people of copying. It’s happened to one of my favourite authors about three times now (that’s how good her book is!) and I feel sort of annoyed for her.
Teen fiction is overdone though. There are so many stories about exactly the same thing with different characters and a different setting. It feels like you are reading the same book in a different location… I guess that’s one of the major downfalls of online reading. However if you ever feel like reading a soppy, cute, uplifting teen romance, online reading is for you!
