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 dislike sappy, pointless love stories. Whether it's a romance novel or a YA story, I am not fond of romance that comes out of nowhere. I think it's a bit of a cop-out when an author writes one of those scenes where the main character falls head-over-heels in love with someone for no reason other than to enhance the plot. I see it a lot in Young Adult novels and it's very frustrating. I like a bit of build up, tension, that kind of thing, not to go directly to the "I can't live without you!" stage.
