This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don't like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!
Answer: You know the biggest thing I hate about some books? Unbelievable or awkward dialogue. People will say stuff that there's no way they would say out loud. Sometimes, when this happens, I stop and reread it because I'm like, "wait, did she just say that?" I mostly mean grammatically, like when they talk super grammatically correct instead of using contractions like a normal person. The one time that sticks out to me is in Twilight when Bella and Edward are driving past the police station and Bella sits up and says "What is going on?" If you say it out loud, you know that no one actually says "What is going on" when they see that something's wrong. They'll say "What's going on?" which sounds wayyy more normal. Maybe I'm crazy and the only person that gets bugged by this, but it bugs me. A lot. So when it happens in a book I get really annoyed and can't really get over how fake they sound. So yup, that's my biggest pet peeve! What's yours?
