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? 

     There are very few things, that are in a book, that I can't find a saving grace for. Like, if I am reading a book and I hate the characters but love the plot, I will keep reading the book for the plot or vice versa. However, there is one thing that almost can never have a good enough saving grace and that is when the pacing in a book i so incredibly slow. When it is slow I can't like the characters, I can't get into the plot, it just ruins the book. That is exactly why I couldn't finish Eon and the Tiger's Curse. 




That was my answer, what was yours?
Happy reading

  2. I have the same answer. If the book is boring, I want to put it down.

  3. I think the beginning of the book needs to captivating but I don't mind a book being slow towards the middle if its building up to something good.

  4. I hate when I'm reading a book and about half way through or toward the end the author throws in something paranormal. I do not enjoy paranormal like so many others. I think if there is paranormal in a book it should be revealed in the synopsis. The books I am talking about are not listed in the paranormal genre, they are listed under other genres. When that happens to me, it ruins the whole book for me.

  5. I like your Friday 56, as well as your answer to "what's a deal breaker." For me, I'm turned off by errors. Bad formatting, incorrect words, spelling and punctuation errors -- they all take me out of the story.

  9. Yup, if a book is putting me to sleep, then I probably won't pick it up again!
