Does the love interest have to die? {Discussion}

Before I get into this post I just want to say a quick thank you for over 500 followers!

Now, you should know that the books I have read are arranged on my shelves vertically – you know, the typical way. But on my TBR shelf, the books lieĀ on top of each other. This wouldn’t be important, if it hadn’t helped me understand what was bothering me about my shelves: GERMAN SPINES ARE UPSIDE DOWN.
