Question: 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 can tolerate some triangles & thinninity, actually... but what drives me batty is RANDOMNESS - someone does something for no reason, they don't think about it, they don't react to it, it has nothing to do with anything IT JUST SITS THERE. Bleh! I pull my hair out screaming WHY?! (silently, usually.) I can tolerate disagreeing with someone if I see why they did something, you know? I can tolerate wildly imaginative stuff if it appeared out of nowhere FOR A REASON.

 Raining gumballs MADE SENSE b/c there was a reason. I don't care if it's unbelievable or not... just give me a REASON TO BELIEVE!!

Ok... I feel passionately about that, as is apparent by the EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF CAPITAL LETTERS!!    What drives you batty?

  1. Just hopping through, definitely a new follower of your uber cute blog. Ew, the randomness in a novel can definitely pull you out of a story quick and when it happens more than once, that's when it really gets frustrating. Definitely in agreement.

  2. Randomness in a book is a turn off for me too.

  3. Randomness always has been flipping back through the pages to see where I missed the part that explained why they were doing this random thing. It's super frustrating to feel confused about a character's reaction to something, because it doesn't align with everything you've learned about them.
