Why are they called trashy novels? I was having a conversation with a friend when I was trying to explain the appeal of Outlander. I said it had sex, nudity, rape, love. The relationship between Claire and Jamie is so intense it’s like the kinda of story you buy for $5 to read on the plane then throw it away as soon as you land so you don’t have to admit to having read it. You trash it. A trashy novel.
And then I said… “No, it’s called trashy because of the content being trash.” However….
So know I’m thinking…. where did the original saying come from? Let’s research!!
Yeah, so I found nothing. LOL
Let’s take a poll!!!
