So I decided to give Feature and Follow Friday a try. This is my really my first time to participate, but it seems like fun, and a great way to find new blogs who might know about books I don't, and to meet some new friends. It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.
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.
I can't really think of a plot device that irritates me, but I know I really hate it when I read the following sentence, or a variation thereof, in any book: "The smile did not quite reach his/her eyes." It has been used in almost every book known to man. The first person who thought of it was inventive, but now it's just a cliche.
What about you?
