Feature & Follow #14

Feature and Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community.

Q: What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can't deal with bad editing? 

A: Insta love. I can't deal with it. I like to see the characters falling in love. I don't like most love triangles but as long as they aren't the main focus of the book and they are done well I can deal with them. But what really gets me is when the main character can't figure out something and I figured it out within the first couple pages and when the main character is completely helpless.

What about you?
Please follow and leave a link to your post so I can follow back!

I like love triangles if they are done well but most of the time I can't stand them!

I don't mind love triangles as long as their written well and are realistic. If they bring something to the plot and help with characterisation then I don't mind them but sometimes a love triangle can be so frustrating!

Insta-love is so frustrating! It makes me want to punch the characters for being such a cliche.

I dont mind insta love so much in paranormal bc the author can pawn it off as a mating situation or life and death situations. But in CR and HR not so much.

Bad editing is definitely a deal breaker. I've run across books that everyone is raving about and yet I can't get past the first chapter because the editing is so bad.

I guess that could work. I would still prefer no insta love though.
