Top Three Pet Book Hates
1-Slow plot. I hate a story that takes forever to get into the meat of the thing. I nearly DNFed Twilight for that reason. Just get on with it! If it is slow and over descriptive I quickly lose interest in it.
2-Tropes. I hate things like love triangles, instaluv, mean kids at school.Can't a new kid make friends at a school instead of getting on the wrong side of Queen Bitch or falling for Hottest Guy Ever or finding a soul mate at 14yo after one look in the canteen or having 6 guys lusting after her??? Gah!
3-Annoying characters. Whiny, pathetic, useless, sex obsessed girls or women, domestic abusing rapist thug 'heroes', obnoxious arrogant love interests, bitchy cheerleaders, zombie deniers ('ooh that half eaten dead man has got up and is eating someone ooh I wonder what is happening maybe he is on drugs!'), complete dumbasses...etc
Perfect Reading Spot
If I won the lottery I'd have a big comfy chair in a conservatory, in a quiet house overlooking a lake with mountains all around. As it is, I read in my bed!
Three Book Confessions
1-It can take me an eternity to read a 'must have' book I've just bought. Yes, I really want to have that book RIGHT NOW then I get a buzz of delight when I'm holding it in my hands...but then it joins the other hoardes and it can be years before I finally get to it!
2-I am a book hoarder and collector. I have embraced my inner book buying beast. I shall buy all the books and feel no guilt.
3-I am obsessive about protecting the spines and covers of books from damage and you will never see a dog ear or highlighted passage in my books! *shudders*
4) Last Time You Cried Reading A Book?
I teared up a bit when a favourite character died in PA Glaspy's 'When The Pain Is Gone'. I'm a soft touch and I cry at anything.
5) Number Of Books On Your Bedside Table
I don't have one. I never generally have more than two books being read at the same time anyway so I don't really need one.
6) Favourite Reading Snack
A tasty box of chocolates. Or big sharing bag of crisps with a nacho cheese dip...
7) Three Books You'd Recommend To Anyone
Zombies-Michael Stephen Fuchs-Arisen series
Horror-JG Faherty-Carnival of Fear
Urban Fantasy-Sonya Bateman or James R Tuck
8) A Picture Of Your Favourite Bookshelf
I have 6 bookcases in my bedroom...don't really have a favourite and they are currently getting an overhaul...
9) How Much Books Mean To You (in three words)
Want Them All!
10) Biggest Reading Secret
DNFing is a Chuckles best friend! I need to spend time on things I'm enjoying, not waste time wading through stuff I'm bored with.
