* 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.
