Day 28: Book Pet Peeves
(What plot lines or stereotypes make you cringe or DNF?)
I’ve ALWAYS hated two main things in books. I hate when the author tries to make the character relatable by saying that they are a “big reader” or “love to read.” Yet for the most part throughout the story, we NEVER see them read. I’ve come across a few books that do this well and do have the character reading a lot, but you can’t just say someone loves to read and not actually show it.
The other main thing is I always hate when main characters are said to have this awesome best friend, but then they are pushed to the background when something important happens or a boy comes along (the second thing being the more likely) and then we basically never see this, supposedly awesome, friend again. Rage, rage, rage.
