Follower Fridays

Photobucket



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!


A: I get really bothered by smart girls doing dumb things. I'm not saying a character can't make mistakes, but I absolutely hate when a female character is suddenly the dumbest person alive when there's a guy involved. I understand if the character's judgement is clouded by love, but I just want to kick them in the face when they repeatedly do dumb things. I'd rather have the character introduced as a girl who makes questionable choices than her having a good head on her shoulders in the beginning and it all going to crap. What about you guys? Please tell me I'm not the only one who occasionally wants to yell at characters.

Great answer! I also dislike smart, strong female characters losing their grip on reality when a male walks in the room. New follower :)

I can understand, It's always so strange and not very logical. We just want to shake the character all along the book...

Haha I agree sometimes I roll my eyes at some character's stupidity.
