Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted
This is our 3rd week to participate!!!!!! YAY!!! So excited!!
Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
1. Insta-love. Cannot stand it when characters are instantly in love with each other. Why not create some sort of conflict? It isn't realistic and makes their relationship seemed forced.
2. Huge Cliff Hangers. When I am really into a book and the author purposely ends on a huge cliff hanger so you'll buy the next book. This is just a turn-off and makes me want to not finish. I don't demand an ending, just some sort of closure to book 1 with the lure of other cool things in book 2.
3. When writers don't say what they mean. Recently, I have read a few novels where I have no idea what the author is trying to say. I love beautiful prose as much as the next person, but sometimes it is just toooooo much!
