Trigger Warnings are important for a number of reasons and I get so tired of reading a book and coming across something that I did not want to read about. Trigger warnings are not a joke or something to go “oh I’m so triggered”. Something you read may not set you off but it may hurt someone else. They are not spoilers and if you disagree with any of this then you are free to click off.
These are here for the people that need them and don’t want to read a hurtful scene in a book. They are not here to shame your favorite book or author, but to help others so they are not hurt.
As I Read I will add the triggers I have found to this list and update it. At the bottom is a form, If you’ve read a book with any triggers that you think would hurt someone please fill out that form so I can add it to this list with your name or blog attached.
