Follow Friday 
I haven't done one of these in a while, but Follow Friday is still hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read
This week's question is:
"What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books?"
Now personally, I don't have anything against Love Triangles (which is something I imagine most people will pick) except for the fact I ALWAYS pick the wrong team. I like the dark, broody, mildly evil guy, which, for some reason, the heroine doesn't. Except for that one time she did. Oh...and that other time..anyway.
I DO have a severe disliking for cliches in plots. I tend to do a massive eyeroll at these (insta-love, 'science partners' absent parents, whatever) but if I like the book enough, I can usually ignore these.
What I really REALLY dislike however, is bad writing. What do I classify as bad? Well, I don't really know. I could name some books I think are badly written...but that would be unfair. Essentially, simplistic writing, lots of 'he said she said', boring descriptions, bad metaphors...anything like that. I'm a bit of a stickler for writing and beautifully written books are my favourite. So yeah, I guess that's my biggest pet peeve.
What about you guys? Does the writing matter to you, or are you more about the plot? Lemme know in the comments and remember to leave a link to your own post!
