The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. There is a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books and fellow bloggers. All are welcome to comment, follow, and/or re-post.
The question for this week (1/18-1/24): Is there anything that drives you bonkers while reading? Something that makes you want to tell the author a thing or two?
Oh yeah, there are a couple! First, repetitive text. For example, authors who love phrases like “he looked up at me through his lashes.” Lashes, lashes, lashes. AHHH, STOP WITH THE LASHES, WE GET IT. Or whatever the text may be, but I have seen lashes a lot. And other slang. Dislike. Also: cliffhangers. At chapters and at end of books. Maybe that makes me a party pooper but I hate having to wait for the next book! How dare you break my heart and leave me hanging!! Its just not fair!!!
So what say you, fellow book lovers? What drives you crazy when reading? Spill the tea!!
