Follow Friday (21)

Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Question: 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!

I actually posted about this subject not too long ago. But I think my biggest pet peeve is actually annoying heroines. Which I realize is a broad category. So if I had to pick the most annoying kind of heroine to me, it would be girls who are that terrible combination of headstrong, impulsive, and naive. Which inevitably leads them to constantly do crazy/stupid/incomprehensible things for no good/clear reason. You know, when they keep doing things that have you going, "WHY?!?! For the love. Just please stop and think for 30 seconds! I beg you." Like Pamela in "Dearly, Departed." Ug.

Anywho, enough of that, what's your pet peeve?


  1. I dislike wishy washy heroines who cant make up their damn mind! Or low self esteem characters esp in YA. I think it is very important to have a heroine in YA with a good self esteem it doesnt have to be perfect but not low. I think that just teaches young teens to have low self esteem. just my opinion I could be totally off base.

  2. LOL! This is a popular peeve tonight and I have to agree with you 100%. I hate when the MC knows something/someone is bad for her but will disregard her gut instincts just because it will move the plot along or because the guy is soooo good looking. Blah!

  3. Popular answer but that is because whiny heroines are the worst!

  4. Hello! New follower! Yes, I have to agree with you. Why do authors do that? Are they trying to portray the impulsiveness of youth? I don't know, but it definitely gets on my nerves!

    I can handle annoying characters (as long as I have a pillow to punch) if there's a reason for it. If the character finds growth throughout the book, then okay, but if there's no character development and the character is just shallow, then it becomes a huge disappointment to me.

  6. The book is a crapshoot for me if I can't relate to at least one character. Especially if the protag's are annoying because you have to deal with them at length throughout the novel.
