Feature and Follow #5

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #120
Feature and Follow #5!

The hosts of this meme are Parajunkee andAllison Can Read. This week's features are Carmen Jenner and The Y.A. Bookworm.

Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.

A: One thing that irritates me is love at first sight. I hate love at first sight. It's less romantic. I rather have it hate at first sight, like the book Dragonfly. 

Another thing that irritates me is that when the author changes POV like without me knowing. I spend like the first page wondering whose talking. Omg.

I think that's it. I don't wanna make it too long. LOL.

If you follow, be sure to comment, so I can follow you back! ;)

  4. I agree with both.
    I hate love at first sight. Even in real life. It shouldn't be called loved at all when you know nothing about that person, right?
    Here's my FF.
    Have a great day!

  5. Insta-love bugs me as well. It's a common complaint yet author's still seem enamored with it.

  6. Nothing's worse than insta-love... as for the POV, if the author can create a distinct voice for each character, the alternate POV's can work.. If not, it's just confusing...

  7. These characters need to realise that it's physical attraction at first sight, not love ;) Totally agree on this one!
