Follow Friday (23)

TGIF everyone! It's time for Follow Friday!




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!

Wow. This is really a lot harder than I thought it would be. I think my absolute #1 pet peeve I have when it comes to books is writing a book with a sequel/series already planned out. I've actually posted about this before in some of my reviews. I just absolutely hate it when authors write a book for a series *ahem Bright Young Things!*, as I feel that this causes the authors to really skimp on the story. In the end, I feel like I've just read a giant prologue.

-Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"

I can see why you would feel that way. An author shouldnt skimp just bc its a series

Yeah, I agree. I only like it if it's in a trilogy, for some reason, since I feel that every book is important if it's only three books. I hate when they do that with a continuous series, though. The first books just fel like a huge prologue until you get to the core of the story. Great answer!

I guess I typically try to get around that by reading series all at once 'cause I like huge stories. I do have a few cliffhangers I'm trying to remember for the sequels coming out and it is irritating. Good choice.

I hate this, too ... Especially when a story is sketched into a series and nothing happens in the first book ... I think a book should have some kind of plot and be able to stand by itself. Happy FF! :)
