Feature And Follow Friday (7).

Q: 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!

The pet peeve I have when it comes to reading is when something is over-described or the same thing is described continuously through a book.


  1. Mmm hmm. Redundancy does nothing to a novel. Love your blog's background btw.

    Happy weekends!

  2. I can certainly understand that pet peeve, it can get overblown.

  3. I feel the same way about something being described over and over. I also hate when the same phrase is used multiple times.

  4. I completely agree with you, dramas....

  6. I'm the same! :) Following back!!!

  7. I hate that too! This one book had the MC say "Mmm" wayyyy to much! There was 3 on a page at one point! Annoyed the heck out of me!

  8. Yes, agreed, I hate when that happens because the story stalls that way.

    have a great weekend!

    New Follower. Come see my Friday too! Also don't miss my "The Cowboy and The Vampire Weekend!" with 5 Star Review, Guest Blog, Co-author Interview and a Signed Book Giveaway!

  9. That is my biggest plot pet peeve, say it and move on don't drone on and on about it. Great answer.

  10. Good answer, Sarah!

  11. Too much description can definitely drag a book down. This is one of the main reasons why I gave up on the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I can only take so much about the hobbits walking!

  13. Agreed!! When I was in college, I had to read Newgate Prison by Dickens (I think . . .), and it took him several PAGES to describe the DOOR! I am totally with you on this one ^_~

  14. Ooooh that's another good one! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. I can relate to this pet peeve. As much as I like Stephan King he is notorious for doing this and it really pisses me off.
    thank for the following. I really like you your blog and I'm following you back.

  16. That is so annoying! You're just like, "Yes I already knew that thank you very much!" So agitating!

  17. Bleh overdone descriptions really kill me. For example in fantasy novels where it takes four pages to describe a tree. Or the penchant for writers to continually describe how gorgeous someone is! Enough already!

  18. Ooh, overdescription is annoying! It really makes my head ache! :D
    Thanks for stopping by my blog; new follower.

  19. I understand this pet peeve. I tend to skim the paragraphs that use too much description. It really kills the mood of a book for me.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  20. I love well-written descriptions, but once it gets repetitive it gets on my nerves and turns me off!
