Feature and Follow Friday #3
Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
A: I'm not so much irritated by this as kind of bemused, I guess. I've read some books so good that I've overlooked it...but I've noticed a lot of YA characters lately have an immediate "electric" attraction to one another.
Right off the top of my head, I can't think of which books in particular have this, but I know several I've come across have that whole, "their hands/lips/whatever touched and she/he felt (something to do with electricity, sparks, a jolt, or similar.)"
Sometimes, this happens the very first time the two characters meet. An accidental meeting of the hands and we've got *bam!* an electric sensation. So instead of Insta Love it's like Insta Zap, maybe? :)
