I nodded. "He's fine."

"There watching me."

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.

     I don't really get annoyed easily when it come to things authors do. There is a lot of things I hate that publishers do, but not much when it comes to authors. The closet I can say is when an author writes a book with very little dialog, because I love dialect and I get bored reading a book where most of it is internal dialog.However, I don't get annoyed when that happens, I just get really, really bored.

That is my answer, what is your's?
Happy reading.

    1. I love her study series. Poison Study is one of my favorite books of all time.
      Thanks for following :)

  4. I love really good dialog too! You know who excels at that? Julia Quinn. She writes historical romance novels, so I don't know if that kind of book is your thing, but the dialog Quinn creates between her characters is amazing, intelligent, witty, but also very natural. You can picture people from that time period saying that.

    Here's my FF

  5. Good dialogue can really make a book.

  8. who's "you know" ...?

    i enjoy some internal dialogue but if it's overdone, i get bored too!

  9. Sometimes being in a character's mind for too long can get boring! As a talkative person myself, I crave dialogue.
