trans Feature & Follow #121
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Question of the week:
What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can’t deal with bad editing?

I cannot stand a weak, spinless, no self esteem, wishy washy can’t make up her damn mind, heroine. They drive me nutz! I just want to smack them. Luckily there arent too many of these.

  3. Ugh this is one of my pet peeves too! A heroine like that and you almost want her to fail.

  4. Yes. No. Yes. Maybe. LOL Very true! A weak main character that can't make up her mind is irritating.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I definitely agree, i Love it when there is a heroine that at least stand up for herself and has spine, an inner strength is what I really admire and makes the story so much more!!! Thanks for visiting me, so I thought I would return the favor!! I just love your blog!! Its gorgeous!!! I am your newest follower, looking forward to reading future reviews!!! Have a great weekend!!!

  6. Agree 100%! Female characters should be courageous independent thinkers so they can be good role models for little girls.

    Thanks for stopping by! Following back! :)

  7. Thanks for stopping by my Friday Hop! The too stupid to live heroines are a major annoyance in a book. Great answer! New follower =)

  8. thnx for follwing! I've followe back!

  9. I think it's hilarious that you described Bella Swan perfectly with that statement. :p

    Thanks for stopping by my thread. Following you back!

  11. Yeah, characters are important too. Especially the heroine or the main protagonist. But I've never dropped a book because I didn't like the heroine before, maybe because I focused more on plots? ;)

    Thanks for commenting and following! Followed back :)

  12. I agree! Even if its the wrong decision, just make one! Thanks for stopping my my blog, New Follower :)

  13. I agree. A heroine you can respect is essential.

    Thanks for stopping by. Following back:)

  14. Hi, thanks for stopping by! I love your look as well, the red and dark colors are beautiful :)
    I totally agree on your bookish deal breaker. I love books with kick-ass heroines, but the boring, whiny type? No thanks.

  15. I agree. I want a character to me strong willed and know what he/she wants and go for it.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. :) New follower.

  16. If the heroine starts out weak and spineless, but then grows -- I can take that, but otherwise I agree! Thanks for visiting. New follower...

  17. I completely agree. I like to read books for string heroines. I get sometimes they become boggled down with stuff but if everyone is always saving them even if they can save themselves and stuff? bleep that. So aggravating. Great point, thank you for stopping by my blog and following!!! Happy Reading!!! New Follower!!

  18. I agree with you 100%. Following you back :)

  19. Completely agree with you! Thanks for stopping by and followed you back!

  20. I prefer books with heroines who know their minds and even if they don't, their life choices don't revolve around two guys! However bad editing ruins books for me more, as I give up on books that sound great otherwise. Thanks for visiting my blog, following back!

  21. lol! I hear ya Amanda...that works my nerves too. OMG, I love your answer :)

  22. So true! A character like the one you described shouldn't even be called heroine in the first place. The protagonist must be the strongest character in the story, the most interesting, appealing.

    Thank you for visiting!

  23. hehe, I agree! I want my heroines to be kick a**. :D

    Great answer. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  24. I agree! I need the heroine to be a badass! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm following you back!

  25. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm glad to see our answers are the same! You're right, there aren't many of them, mostly because I think that most readers feel the same way we do!

    New follower! Love your blog, btw. The pinstripes are so cool!

  26. Agreed - these are the characters that I yell at as I read!

    - Jessica @ Book Sake

  27. Oh so true. Weak heroines are no fun to read. Thanks for hopping by my blog! Following you back :D

  28. Oh gosh O.O heroines like that make me go crazy I'm like for realz bro? -.- Great answer and thanks for stopping by my blog, following you back :)

  29. Great answer! Weak heroines are also a pet peeve of mine - sometimes I wonder if we females are that annoying!
    Thanks for stopping by and following my blog, I’ve returned the favor :)

  30. Great answer. I totally agree!!
    Thanks for stopping by! Old Follower via GFC.

  31. Great answer! I couldn't agree more! Weak heroines are SO annoying...and frustrating! Ugh.
