Feature & Follow (Friday)

"The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read."

What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book?

Love at first sight a.k.a insta-love. Love at first sight is a wonderful thing, but lets be real how often does that happen when you’re a teenager. Seriously. That’s not insta-love, that’s lust at first sight. So he’s hot, but what about his character? Depth please!

Love triangle. First of all, I love a love triangle when I (as a reader) can’t choose myself either. But, when I don’t feel the connection between the girl and one of the guys I’m a hater of it. And why does the girl always have to whine about it ? Choose already! We all know who you are going to end up with.

Happy Friday!!

hahaha totally agree!! Those are the two most annoying things in a book :D

Nina  – (26 oktober 2012 om 05:03)  

@Emma-Boekenzee: I agree, those two are high on the list of annoying things. :)

Myra White  – (26 oktober 2012 om 05:07)  

I have to agree. Love triangles where it's obvious who the girl will choose but she ends up hurting everyone and being a pain in the bum, are just painful.

@Myra: Indeed, painful! Thanx for stopping by! :)

@ Cassy: Me too! :)

I said insta-love too! And love triangles can get kind of annoying. I hate not being able to choose because no matter who the character chooses, you always feel bad for the other one! Great answer :)

Here's my FF!

Lisa (Lost in Literature)  – (26 oktober 2012 om 05:36)  

Haha love it!!! My thoughts EXACTLY! I'm with you on this one. ;)

Jessica@a GREAT read  – (26 oktober 2012 om 05:52)  

Definitely agree on both points! I can't stand insta love. To me it's just falling in love based on looks alone and that's just annoying!

Love triangles, I agree can be done well. But when there's a love triangle just for the sake of a love triangle I can't stand it.

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

Yes! Instalove is SO way worse than LT but I hate them both.

Lisa  – (26 oktober 2012 om 07:54)  

I completely agree about Love Triangles. If they are written right I am completely in love with them, but if not then I really dislike them.

I like insta-love in teens books but it seems cheesy in adult books. When I was a teen I was always in insta-love in my mind.

Old follower thanks for stopping by

Jennifer  – (26 oktober 2012 om 08:15)  

I totally agree! There are a few exceptions to my dislike of love triangles, but they are few and far between. Old follower.

Happy Friday!

I chose love triangles also. I agree with the insta love in ya, it never seems real. Thanks for stopping by, following back

Julie  – (26 oktober 2012 om 09:53)  

Oh, I agree with the love triangle thing so annoying! I even wrote a whoel post on it at me blog today.

New follow via GFC.

Oh goodness. I AGREE with your comment about love triangles. I can almost always tell who she's going to pick and then the third person is like a pesky fly that you have to keep swatting away. I don't care for love triangles in general, but the two series that I actually love that feature triangles, are the type that I'm not sure who the girl will end up with (Unearthly by Cynthia Hand and The Infernal Devices by Cassadra Clare), and they're also written in a believable way.

The Book Blondes  – (26 oktober 2012 om 10:29)  

Oh how interesting! Thanks for your suggestion, I will give that book a try! I agree, although some love triangles I like.

I agree how often does insta love come to teenagers or even adults, but I'm a dreamer so sometimes I need it, I would admit to be a little cheesy myself LOL thanks for stopping by I am returning the follow of your super cute blog GFC

Happy Halloween

Melissa (Books and Things)  – (26 oktober 2012 om 12:07)  

I've actually read a couple of triangles that were real triangles and handled well by the author and I was majorly surprised. However, I do agree with you otherwise. It's so rare.

I hate cliffies! HATE them more than anything else. :P

Talk Supe  – (26 oktober 2012 om 13:22)  

I know insta-crush is true but insta-love... that's a little creepy in real life.


Daphne  – (26 oktober 2012 om 14:38)  

I agree with you 100%! Insta luv is just so unrealistic and almost never happens in the real world. Love triangles are one of my favorite factors in a novel but if it's obvious on who the character should pick, I wouldn't like it either. Old follower.

I really should've put instalove on my list. But my list was sooooo long that I just had to stop myself because I felt like such a complainer!

Thanks for visiting! New follower!

Joie  – (26 oktober 2012 om 18:54)  

I agree! Although, there are love triangles that are done quite well. As a whole though, it's way too overused so you hardly see anything new.

Thanks for stopping by my FF :)

Cindy Mai  – (26 oktober 2012 om 19:56)  

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yep. I totally agree. OMG. Insta-love. Old follower~

quinnsbooknook  – (26 oktober 2012 om 20:36)  

Haha. I'm not a huge fan of instalove, either, but I hate love triangles ever more. I just have no patience for it. And is it love, if she can't choose? I just don't like them.

Here's my FF

Carmen Jenner  – (27 oktober 2012 om 03:24)  

Ha ha! Agreed, insta-love is the worst, but I draw the line at triangles, as a rule I genuinely LOVE those! ;)

Jen Witch  – (27 oktober 2012 om 06:44)  

Thos are definitely two good picks. Triangles and Insta-love can drive me crazy at times.
