Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (19)

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So visit Crazy-for-Books to grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list there!

This week's question:

Coming soon!

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. Visit either of their blogs for complete rules of the following fun!

This week's question:

"Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!"

I'm surprisingly having a difficult time thinking of any real pet peeves. I do, however, have a problem with love triangles done poorly, especially if they are introduced to cover up lack of plot. A good love triangle can bring a lot to a story, but a poorly-crafted one can kill an otherwise good book. I am also not a fan of an excessive amount of physical description of the main male characters. Don't get me wrong, I love envisioning some of the love interests as much as the next girl, but I find it irritating when every other sentence talks about some aspect of how hot he is. I want to know the guy behind the hotness.

And that's all I can think of for now!

What are your answers? Please leave a comment or a link to your blog!


  1. Hopping through. I'm with you on good love triangles. They're hard to do well, but can be really fun. Mostly though, they're worthless.

  2. Heehee, love triangles. Can't help rooting for one or both guys when reading. And i agree that we need something besides the hotness.

    Happy weekends!

  3. you are right a love triangle needs to be done right. I didnt so much like the bella, zsadist, phury love triangle in the black dagger brotherhood. It felt forced.

  4. I don't like that either! The over description of the male hotness! We get it the first time that he's hot! Any repetitive followups are not necessary.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. LOL! Guy behind the hotness, good point!

    Follower. Come see my Friday too! Also don't miss my "The Cowboy and The Vampire Weekend!" with 5 Star Review, Guest Blog, Co-author Interview and a Signed Book Giveaway!

  6. My biggest pet peeve is spelling mistakes. If an author won't take the time to properly proofread their book why should I take the time to read it?

  7. I don't like love triangles done poorly. I had trouble at first but after I got going and hopping, I realize I have plenty! Just not anything especially big.

    Have a great weekend! Old follower. :) Find out what my pet peeves are!

  8. The love triangle really isn't my thing :)
