Question: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? Do you abhor love triangles? Or can't deal with bad editing?
Good question! I can't stand love triangles, it seems they are everywhere these days! I also can't stand when all the sub characters are in love with the main character, it is so annoying and unrealistic to have EVERYONE pine for the main character. It's even worse when she/he is bratty or arrogant. Also i do not like long descriptions of rock or mountain faces, you do not need a page and a half to describe how perfectly the sun glints off the snow-capped hills.
Bad editing is definitely a deal breaker. I've run across books that everyone is raving about and yet I can't get past the first chapter because the editing is so bad. Also, I'm sick of virgins. If I have to read about another virgin (that's not young adult) I'm gonna scream. Ditto in the happy endings that wrap up all neat. A little reality goes a long way with me.
Love-triangles are WAY too overdone, I agree...it's getting annoying. I also think it's unrealistic when EVERYONE is pining for the main character. Especially when she keeps insisting she's plain o.O Great answer, new follower via GFC! Here's my FFF
