Feature and Follow Friday

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?
