Feature and Follow Friday (2)

Feature and Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It allows us book bloggers to show off our blogs and gain new followers!

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 really hate insta-love. Sometimes, if it’s written correctly, it is bearable but if a book does contain insta-love then I might not be as keen on it. 
I also really dislike it when people use sentences like this: He/she was amazing. 
To me, it doesn’t make much sense and it doesn’t flow well.
What irritates you?

    I’m not a big fan of insta-love. You can feel attracted to a person when you first meet but declaring your undying love after five minutes is taking it a bit-lot far.

    Can’t say that I have come across anything with insta-love either, not recently at any rate, but I can certainly see how it would be irritating. It would take all of the fun right out of the story.

    Huh. Wow. Have you actually read “He/she was amazing.” in a published book? That…oh dear.

    Ohh insta-love is the number one answer! I HATE it. I don’t know of any books where it works.

    I’m with you on the insta-love. Annoying!
