Follow Friday #9

Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of http://www.parajunkee.com/ and Alison of http://www.alisoncanread.com/ If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!


Now to this week's 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!


My answer is pretty simple. I hate the foretelling of weak and useless women. I personally have never met one yet. We all have spunk and uniqueness, our own way of taking charge of life whether emotionally, physically or spiritually. To read about a woman stumbling over herself, demeaned by those around her and simply accepting it as true makes my blood boil. No matter the plot or the circumstance, inside we are all strong, beautiful and ever evolving. To not see that in at least some written word can be deeply disappointing from a reader perspective.
Ooh, I also hate reading sex scenes that throw in words like turgid, opening tulip, quivering member and soft center  I know you're trying not to say Penis or Vagina, but bloody hell, stop picking on nature and one-eyed snakes.
Have a good one everyone and happy #ff!

  1. There is this one author that kept referring to a females natural lubrication as "syrup" she used that as the descriptiveingica term over and over again in more then one book, I got so annoyed at some point put the book down and have refused to read another book by that author. So I get it.

  3. I completely agree with you about weak and useless women!

    And I don't know that I want to see the words Penis or Vagina...but I totally understand what you mean about the other words...I always think is that really the best word that comes to mind in the heat of the moment?
