* TakeThat: Quite a few against {{Twilight}}.
** These typically take the form of Mark mocking StephenieMeyer whenever he finds a good example of ShowDontTell, the lack of such in Twilight being an early complaint he had.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Mark's reviews of the first few chapter of the first book were snarky and condescending. Then he was won over by the chapter where Hagrid shows up at the Hut-on-the-Rock and then all was right with the world.
** Those first few chapters were a holdover from the ''other'' series he'd read and blogged about. Mark hated ''Twilight'' with a passion.
** He's by no means the first ''Harry Potter'' reader to find that Philosopher's Stone gets off to a slow start.

** In the last chapter of Deathly Hallows, Mark has Cedric go up to Harry and co and talk about how he's "spent the last five years trapped inside a book that glorifies abuse, shame, and mediocrity" following his death, a reference to the fact that him and Edward Cullen are portrayed by [[RobertPattinson the same actor]].

* {{Gayngst}}: Mark is gay. He sometimes relates examples of this trope from his real life, usually from his high school days.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: It's pretty clear how much Mark loves Hagrid: The first chapter he's introduced, Mark already wants to marry him. Bear in mind that Mark generally has no interest in marriage, as [[MarkReadstwilight his Twilight reviews]] made clear.

After [[MarkReadsTwilight suffering through]] ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', Mark decided to embark on the project of reading ''Literature/HarryPotter'' (which he'd never read before) and review it on his blog one chapter at a time and even though at the beginning he was not quite sold now it's REAL HARD because '''[[BoldInflation THIS SERIES IS SO AMAZING AND ADDICTIVE]]''' AND [[Creator/JKRowling J. K. ROWLING]] [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike IS A FUCKING GENIUS]]! HE WAS NOT PREPARED FOR THIS SHIT! [[http://bit.ly/MRHPlist CHECK IT OUT RIGHT NOW!]]

* LighterAndSofter: ''Blog/MarkReadsTwilight'' was Mark constantly ranting at the sheer stupidity of the characters, the plot destruction, the racism, etc... while this blog is Mark thoroughly enjoying reading a good series.

** During Chapter 3 of Order of the Phoenix, Mark inserts himself into the story to express his excitement at seeing the return of both Lupin and Moody. Everyone finds him annoying, and Moody eventually stuffs him into the Dursley's oven and turns the heat up to maximum. [[UnexplainedRecovery He Gets Better]].
