Q: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can’t deal with bad editing?
A: It's kind of hard to just pick more than one. I guess the thing that annoys me as a reader more THAN ANYTHING ELSE is mediocrity. That is definitely a deal-breaker. If I can't get invested in the book, the characters AND the story, I'm going to break up with it. Another thing that's a deal breaker is whiny, self-indulgent, dependent and empty headed main characters - especially heroines. If you want me to idolize someone, don't make them incapable of independent thought!!! Those are just a couple of my main ones. :) Love triangles and constant, unresolved angst also bother me. What about you guys? What are your deal breakers as a reader? Also, I can't believe that this is my first F&F post since July! WTF? I didn't realize how busy I had gotten with school and work!
