Follow Me Friday #3

Friday, December 02, 2011


Follow Me Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read Check out their website!

Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!

I love Love Triangles (only if it doesn't go overboard) but I really hate the whole 'Love at First Sight' idea. Yes we get it, he's hot and you're attracted to him, but 'crush' goes beyond the looks don't you think?? I don't mean that every single 'First Impression' story was awful, in fact I consider some to be really fun read, perhaps I just met too many swooning characters who obsessed abnormally over hot guys who they haven't even talked to. So yeah, I guess I hate thin and shallow plots.

  1. Thin and shallow plots is very much the most pet peeve over a book. I think it deserves some re editing and some proofreading. as for love triangles I think I have answered this one on my post.

    Happy Friday *waves*

  2. Love at first sight can be hard to follow, but if it's written well, I can handle it. Old follower! Here's my FF: Mom Reads My Books

  4. Don't like love at first sight either.
    You can get a crush at first sight but the whole "THAT'S THE ONE I WILL MARRY!" is absolute turn off.

    thanks for visiting!

  5. Great answer! I can get a minor crush from when you first look at him, but unless that crush develops into something else or you spend more time with them, it's just a crush. Love at first sight is literally impossible and can never happen.

  6. I agree with you completely. Whenever you come across a hot guy you may be attracted to him, but if he's a complete bonehead you don't go ahead an fall in love with him regardless right??

    Great answer! I'm a new follower. My FF Post

  7. Another blogger commented on this as well! I think the idea is often overused, or not used in the right way, and that is why people get sick of it. I like it, and then I don't -- it depends on the story.

    Thanks for stopping by! Happy Friday, Nat! :D

  8. Love-at-first sight has become so common (at least with the books I've been reading lately), that its becoming cliche. Its definitely overused!
