Discussion Points – Pet Peeves

One of my favourite authors has a great discussion going on at her place. Its about our Pet Peeves in reading. This is something that i have been thinking about recently as reviewers get more angsty about what they read – whether it’s a higher standard that they demand, or there fantasy was not fulfilled or just too picky.

What ever the reasons – it more less steams from our our personal Pet Peeves.

Jump over to Shawn’s Blog – Shawn Lane Writes Romance and share what are your no on’s in reading.

 

Here’s a bit of what going on so far.

The only one I can think of is the TSTL (too stupid to live) main character which can be present in any plot, really, but thankfully I come across that much less in m/m romances (which is almost all I read these days). But this isn't really a plot element.

I can probably say i shy away from certain book with child abuse, or rape - every year i try reading one, but my heart literally can't take it...
It kills me inside...

Hi EH!

Popped over at Shawn's blog and left a comment. I don't have any pet peeves about storylines, but I enjoyed her post and your thoughts.

Interesting topic. I went over and posted a comment on Shawn's blog too... I really don't have any pet peeves. As long as the story is a good one and I'm entertained even the 'predictable' plots are good. Basically the only things I really hate in a story line are child abuse and animal abuse. I shy away from that.
