Feature & Follow Friday: Dec 2

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. First you leave your name here, then you create a post on your own blog that links back here and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them hi in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. The Feature bloggers are chosen randomly from participants in the Follow Friday or through twitter and blog introductions. If you are interested in becoming a Feature let me know! It is also required to follow the host blog (parajunkee.com) and the Feature blog to participate in the #FF.
 Today's feature: Lauren @ Lauren Gets Literal, and
                                       Fic Book Reviews

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!

    Weak plot, boring and whiny characters, unexplained actions, cliched scenes and anything that goes absolutely wrong in the novel.

    What about you?

  3. Hopping through. I think anything unexplained is a big problem, along with dropped plot lines. It seems sloppy.

  4. Boring and whiny characters kill a book. I don't mind a little 'whining' but it gets annoying after a while.

  6. I definitely struggle finishing books that have weak plotlines and it frustrates me to no end when they draw it out and make an entire series out of it.

    I'm an old follower. :)

  8. I agree with you. There is nothing worse than a weak plot. Honestly, what does that say about you as a writer? Further, I wonder whether they are trying to tell me, as the reader, that I am too stupid to handle a complex plot.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Returning the follow ^_^

  10. Excellent points, I especially dislike the whiny characters. That can really ruin a book for me.
