Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.

A: UH. Well, I dunno. I definitely hate it when a book is really similar to one I've read already, even if the author hadn't intended it to be that way. I don't think I've ever dealt with an "omnipotent narrator" before. (It's sounds fairly epic though) I hated Unraveling... OH you know what bugs me the most? Random info dumps. Those are really annoying. I love just having the information slowly leak out during a book/series, so that by the end you know everything. And I hate it when authors don't really give enough explanation of  the relationships between characters (like the guy best friend in Unraveling, I could not figure out how he and the MC knew each other for the longest time. it was awful).

I sound ADD. It's 6:20 am my time, so I guess that's why :)

  1. I agree with he random info dumping! I don't want to be overwhelmed and know everything within the first couple of chapters, it defeats the purpose of reading.

  3. RANDOM INFO DUMPS!!!!! YES!

    Sorry. Got a little excited there haha.

    I really hate it when the background of the story / character / world / situation / anything / everything happens right at the beginning of the book as well.

    Yeahhh Unraveling really just felt like a rehash of Roswell :( Although I seriously felt like that whole book was a prequel to a story that could be new and cool. If you got to the end?

  6. Oh, I agree with your points. I don't care for cliffhangers, but mostly I hate anything that happens due to coincidence. I like logical steps to a conclusion.

  7. Yep, info dumps are so sad. If you wanted those, you could always pick up your textbook.

  8. Hi! New follower here. I agree with hating info dump. It stops the flow of the book and it's so much info at once that you fail to remember half of it.

    Also, I am giving away a Kindle or Nook (your choice) on my blog if you are interested. The contest ends in 2 days!

    Peace & Love
