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?
A: LOVE Triangles!!! I can't stand them.Normally there're predictable.Like one character is just not the right choice and you know they won't be picked in the end. Plus I don't see love triangles as "love" or like a choice.I see it as added drama that I can't stand.
I could be loving a story ,but when the author throws that third person in I'm like
Before you leave, comment and tell me where I can find your FF and enter my Giveaways.
It takes a lot for me to quite reading a book. I've only quite 3 or 4 books in my reading lifetime. I'm a new follower via GFC and would love for you to visit me when you can...ReplyDelete
The Scarf Princess
Same sentiments about love triangles, although I've built up a grudging tolerance for them. But I still won't read any YA novel with a love triangle (except for The Infernal Devices).ReplyDelete
I also really hate when love triangles have really predictable endings... but some CAN be done well. I know I'm biting my nails to find out who Tessa finally ends up with in Clockwork Princess!ReplyDelete

I don't mind triangles, but I totally get how they can be cheesy and/or cliche. They need to be done well or they get way annoying. :D Old follower. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :DReplyDelete

Yeah love triangles can get annoying. Sometimes it feels like they are there simply to be there. Really bad love triangles like that make the book a little less enjoyable.ReplyDelete
Here's my Follow Friday
Have a GREAT weekend!
Old Follower :)
Hi, I am a new follower. I don't like love triangles when the only purpose is to have a love triangle. You are right about being able to predict the outcome way too easily. I do, however, like them when they add another layer of conflict. I especially like them in a mystery/suspense.ReplyDelete
LOVE your answer . . I had a rant that like on my blog last week . .I took up a whole post!!!! LOL!!! I even had to stop reading 'The Iron Fey' series because I was so fed up! I am a new follower and if you'd like to follow back my link is http://kvlovesbooks.blogspot.co.uk/ thanks xxReplyDelete

Love triangle is a popular answer this week! I personally don't really mind them, as long they're done right. I agree about some of them being predictable, though.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend!
Pam @ jellylovesbooks
Haha, I totally agree! Although, I have to say; sometimes they can work.ReplyDelete
They don't bother me that much unless the person refuses to ever choose and that's the basis of the story.ReplyDelete
Depends on the story with love triangles.ReplyDelete
I know what you mean. While I've really enjoyed SOME love-triangles I feel they're WAY too overdone lately, especially in ya. And to be honest, I'm not the kind of girl who'd fantasize about being in an actual love-triangle to start with! I always know right away which boy I'd choose, and then I get mad at the MC for not making up her mind! LOL. Anyways great answer & thanks for sharing. Here's my FFF this weekReplyDelete
Micheline @ Lunar Rainbows
Yes! They are just more drama. I mean, occasionally they can be well written and actually contribute to the character growth and story line, but usually that's not the case. And even in the well written ones I still can't stand them. Take Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices series for instance. It feels like nails on a chalkboard to me whenever Jem and Tessa are in a scene together. I like Jem, but it's so obvious that he's the odd man out in that triangle. It's annoying to read at times.ReplyDelete
Jesse @ Pretty In Fiction
I agree. Love triangles are cliche and generally predictable. They're not exactly a deal-breaker for me, but I want to feel like a love triangle is necessary to a plot and not just introduced as romantic tension filler. (And they usually are filler).ReplyDelete
