Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book?
1. Confusing Points of View
I find myself annoyed when a writer decides to tell the story through switching points of view, but doesn't properly distinguish the differences between them. I recently read a book in which the pov shift would happen every few paragraphs without warning. It was really difficult to get a handle on the style especially when the two main characters would be in different locations and the story would jump around. I will say that I eventually got used the style and enjoyed the story, but it was slightly irritating.
2. Love Triangles (especially in YA)
I do not hate all love triangles and I understand the drama that can come from them. But, what annoys me is writing a love triangle just for the sake of having one. There should be a deliberate reason for the situation and it should be written in a way that makes the reader become heavily invested in the outcome.
