Book Club Thursday: Pet Peeves
Welcome back to Book Club Thursday!
Today we are talking pet peeves. When we first came up with this theme topic I thought...Oh this is a good one. I have so much to talk about.
Then I really started to think about it and what I was going to say. Turns out I don't have that many pet peeves about the books I read.
Oh sure, there are a handful (slightly less as you'll see) of things that bug me some about the books I read but nothing that would stop me from enjoying the book.
It dawned on me that if you can find so many things that bug you, you are reading the wrong genre. It's time to move on and find something new for a while.
That being said I guess I should get on with what the post is all about.
One thing that does bug me slightly is when a author goes on for a whole chapter describing say...the town. I would rather see it through the characters eyes.
To much description makes the story for me move slower. I like the dialogue to move it along more.
I know I might stand alone on this but I really hate when authors are trying to make their female character tough, independent, able to take care of themselves, and all they do is make the woman come off bitchy. Now don't get me wrong in many of the books I read the woman is strong, but there is a difference between strong and not likable.
The not likable turns me off.
I know there are more things, or at least I think their are that bug me, but for the life of me I can't think of anymore. I'd love to hear your "pet peeves" what bugs you about the books you read?
Make sure to stop by my fellow Book Club Thursday Bloggers and see what their "pet peeves" are.
Stop by on September 10th when we are doing our "Reading Challenge" Post
