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!

Oh goodness, there is one thing that peeves me are the "love at first sight" gimmicks in books. Can't stand them. Another thing that really irks me is lack of connection to a character. The only way that I can enjoy a story is if there is some way, shape, or form that I can connect on an emotion, psychological, or physical level.

 Writing Reviews 101: What's your process for writing book reviews? Any tips or suggestions you would recommend to other bloggers?

My process is read, let my thoughts and emotions settle, and then write  le review. Sometimes if there are review, I'll read what other bloggers saw as pros and cons and then incorporate my opinion to the matter or throw in something that wasn't touched upon.

I can't stand insta-love either! I see you're reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone at the moment. So am I and I'm finding it hard to continue despite loving the writing because of the insta-love. Bleh!

Great answer! I'm a new follower. My FF Post

I am totally with you when it comes to character developement. I have a hard time continuing a book that I feel no connection with.

Great answer! I'm definitely agreeing with you on the whole love at first sight thing. It's so annoying how the main character is drawn to someone they don't even know!
