Feature & Follow

Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.

If you would like to follow me, you can do so by GFC, Twitter or Linky (left).

I also make sure to go back and follow everyone that comments and I try to always follow twitter along with GFC/Linky. So if you have a twitter that is not on your page for some reason leave it in the comments and I will follow you that way too!

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?

I have a hard time when I don't like a main character. If the main character is spending the majority of the book getting on my nerves then it makes it difficult to read. Sometimes side characters will make up for it but it's rough. I'm not talking about when I get frustrated with a main character because there are moments like that in every book, it's the don't open the door the murderer is on the other side thing.

  1. Hi! I agree with you, it is hard to read a book if you could care less about the characters! I for one think characters should be one of the best parts of the book! New follower!
    My FF is at http://yellsworld.blogspot.com/2012/11/feature-and-follow-1.html

  2. I know! A stupid and dumb protagonist irritates me so much! Great answer. :D

    New follower here!

    It would be great if you could stop by my Feature and Follow Friday post.

  3. Hi! I answered annoying main character. =)
    New Follower here, by the way.

  4. Yup, you gotta like the MC or what's the point? Great answer! Old follower via GFC. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

  5. Great answer. I agree. I don't have to like the main character all of the time, but if he or she is grating on my nerves or being an idiot, it's difficult!
    Thanks for stopping by! Following you back via GFC.

  6. I agree! If I don't like the MC, I don't feel like I should continue the story :)

  7. I also find it hard to continue reading a book when I don't like the main character/if he/she's really annoying.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Definitely! Really good answer, when the MC is not relatable it's a HUGE deal! Wish I'd thought of this one for my FFF :) Thanks for sharing, old follower.

  9. Yup, if the main character isn't someone I'd be all right hanging out with IRL, the book just doesn't work super well for me. Books are like my friends :D I'm only mostly crazy >.>

    Old follower! Here's my FFF: FFF

  10. I agree with that, good answer.


  11. I agree! They have to have some reason for me to root for. I've read very few books that successfully worked with me hating the character, but enjoying the book.

  12. Good answer! For example, I hate Zoey from The House Of Night series, and even if the story line was quite interesting, I couldn't get past the first two books ^^

    Have a great weekend!

  13. I like that answer. If I don't like the main character, I can't read about them.

  14. I generally either get really annoyed or really bored when I can't relate to the characters. Good answer.

    I’m a new follower by GFC. You can find my FF here.

  15. For me, the main characters doesn't have to be likeable or anything, he or she only needs to be relatable (in other words, I have to be able to relate to him/her). But I totally understand your point!
    Thanks for the comment over at my blog earlier! I've followed you back!
