Day Fourteen: Deal Breakers
This topic could have a lot of responses. I'm going to use this topic to discuss deal breakers when reading a book. Two weeks ago there was a Top 10 Tuesday discussing topics that will make me not pick up a book. I'm going to talk about what happens when I start reading a book and it turns into a topic that I just don't want to read about moment. I might put the book down and come back to it at a later time when I feel like I want to read about death, or I want to read about falling in love, or any other cliché plot line.
I used to feel really guilty about not finishing a book but now I don't feel that way because there's a lot of books out there in the young adult genre that have similar plot lines I don't think this is all bad because, each author takes a twist of the overall plot line of the love triangle, vampires, or werewolves. I just feel sometimes if I read too many of these books in one sitting or one after another they get really boring and redundant. I then either pick up something new like witches or maybe even a classic just all depends on what new cliché I want to read about.
I know it seems maybe just to authors but to bloggers as well that with all these repeat plot lines we might think that there are no more ideas left to write about. I don’t think that’s true the other day I was on twitter and there was this whole hash tag that was being talked about, people put ideas for books. I went through and read a couple of them and some of were great. I will include the link down below in this post. We bloggers and readers have fantastic ideas to write books but most of us don't write. I know I have dabbled in writing short stories back when I was in seventh grade and I had my minute of fame when I took first in a local contest but I know I'm not an amazing writer and I'm okay with that because I rather read novels from not “professionals” but well-versed people then read mediocre short stories or fan fiction from myself.
