Welcome back to the MFRW 52 week blog hop challenge. It is week 22 and our topic is our biggest pet peeve in a book. This is harder than I thought it would be since I read so much. After much thought and deliberation I think most of mine spring from the blurb or pumped up reviews. #1 I hate reading a blurb, gettign all excited and the book delivers nothing the blurb promised. Don’t get me started on the cute blurbs that are just hyped up one liners, such as…A captivating story of love, hurt, romance and mystery. Ok, that’s all good but tell me a little more about what this book is about not a generalization. Tell me something about these particular characters and the plot. Make me want to pick this up and buy it. Now once I have it in my grubby little hands nothing irks me more than the story being completely something else than the blurb suggested. If it says some mystery give me some mystery not one page of a quick rundown. If it promises romance give me some not one scene at the end.
I also don’t like big words or names in a story. Keep it simple so I don’t have to stop every page and look up a word or try to sound out a name that not even in the dictionary. That kills the flow for me.
Since i am avid book reader I also am picky. If you borrow one bring it back and I hate seeing people that dog ear or leave a book open upside down. Please use bookmarks and put it on your bedside table or where it belongs after reading.
