Question (11/2/2012) : What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can't deal with bad editing?

I have a tendency to give up on books if they have a slow start. I don't particularly care for love triangles anymore, since they're so over-done, but it won't stop me from reading a book if I like the story. Also, I vaguely remember reading something (can't remember if it was a book or an article for school) that was littered with quotation marks - and not the kind you use when you actually quote someone, and not in the sense of dialogue. That drove me up a wall and I couldn't finish it...whatever "it" was. See? Imagine "that", but having "that" done "several" times a paragraph, "sometimes" even more than once per sentence. "Annoyed" yet?

I would appreciate a follow, IF you think my blog covering books and other ideas for Babies to Young Adults will appeal to you and/or help you in some way. I DO NOT want you to follow me just because you feel like you have to because I'm participating in the Hop, as I cannot promise the same to you. For instance, if your blogging specialty is erotic novels or adult books, I have nothing against you or your site, it's just not my cup of tea.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Heya! I tend to give up on books with slow starts too. Just kind of dampens my mood when I can't get into the story until I'm halfway through the book. Really cute blog btw! New Follower :)

    Here's my #FF

  2. I really try to power through the slow starts because I find that sometimes the book ends up to be amazing.

  3. Now why would they need all those quotes that just does not make sense.

  4. EEekk.. yes... that's incredibly annoying... I would've only made it a few pages if "that" was done constantly. >_<

    Thanks for stopping by my FF! I'm now following you via GFC! (I LOVE your banner BTW)


  5. I definitely agree with you! I always put down my book if I begin to feel bored because of the slowness. Reading slow books definitely contributes to reading slumps and I really don't want to get into another one anytime soon. Thanks so much for sharing. :)
