Follow Friday

I missed the Friday Feet.
 
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. They also have two lovely featured blogs: Love, Literature, Art and Reason and Fiction Predictions. If you haven't followed them, you should. They're amazing.

Today's Question: 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 have only been a few books in my life that have been so bad I haven't read them all the way through. If I do make the decision to shred the book I'm reading instead of reading it, that is usually because of a (I like this word) multiplicity of unpardonable errors and not just one fudge. Though there are many things I find perfectly obnoxious that make me roll my eyes, sigh, and check to see how many pages are left to the end of the chapter, just one of them appearing all on its own won't make me throw the book across the room. That only happens if it brings friends.

And I perfectly adore (fictional) love triangles. Just sayin'.

We wish a joyous and productive month to all our brave NaNoWriMo friends.
You can do it!
 
Also, keep a weather eye out for Save-a-Word Saturday. It's coming along sometime.

  3. The last book I threw down in disgust was The Metamorphosis by Kafka. I finished the book, but it felt like I had entirely wasted my time. There is no point, there is nothing uplifting, and it left me feeling like a black hole had opened in my soul and sucked everything good out of it. (I should tell you how I really feel, eh?;)
    Anyway, I like a book that is bursting with content, philosophy, social commentary, and/or political agendas, but that book had none of the above.

    1. Just one very large bug.

      I seemed to have escaped Kafka for the moment. No doubt he is in my near future.
