Booking Through Thursday
What are your literary “pet peeves”?
Oh, there are a few. I hate, hate, hate characters who fall in love with each other as soon as they so much as catch a glimpse of one another. I don't get it and what it boils down to is that the author is too lazy to build a relationship.
I also dislike books that have weak protagonists. Usually, it's female characters that don't do anything but scream and fall and wait for their knight in armor to show up. Not my kind of thing. I'm not saying they all need to be ninja warriors or anything, but they have to have some sense of independece.
Another one I have might be a bit strange, but I'm not a huge fan of books that have dream sequences. I know they're used for character development, but they tend to bore me.
I'm sure there are many more peeves, but those are the ones that really make me want to fling books around the room.
