[Linking Up] Feature and Follow #02




Q: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can't deal with bad editing?

My first answer would be bad editing because I just can't stand reading something I want to correct every five minutes. Then, my second answer would be annoying lead characters, regardless of whether male or female. I can tolerate a certain degree of annoyance, but when it goes beyond logic, I'd have to put a stop to it. Well, unless the story is really good then I put up with it.

  1. I have to agree with this. If it is understandable I'll cut it some slack.

  2. Annoying main characters are the worst. Just.. URGH! :C I don't even know why I didn't put that on my list. I almost put "Zoey Redbird" on it, because she's the most annoying character I know, but.. XD
