Day 3 Challenge: You Say Snarknado – I say STFU! Cheesy Tropes, Eye-Roll Inspiring Actions, Words & Phrases that you just wish would stop being used in novels.
There are many guilty phrases, words, and actions that qualify for this snarky list, let’s take a look at them!
Jumping right into the middle of a story, but in the beginning. – This may be a little on the side, but it irritates me when I start reading a book and by page 10 I feel like I am already in the climax of the book. Especially when it seems like the characters are “catching on” a little too quickly. Nobody is THAT smart.
The throbbing member – Come on, there are many better ways to describe that particular part of the male anatomy besides that.
Characters being overly clueless and sensitive about relationship stuff. – Yeah, so what if he doesn’t agree with EVERYTHING you do, GET OVER IT!
Loving the taste of your significant other, and being turned on by the smell of his/her after working in the yard sweatiness. – Who thinks that their partner tastes good? Or that their sweat is appealing? Not this girl…just sayin. There is something called B.O.
The female’s “molten core.” – This is not what I feel at all…
Being sheathed – Not gonna describe this one, but I know it is not about a sword and that is an unfortunate choice of words.
The two main characters being kind of maybe related (as in possibly brother in sister or step-siblings). – I have came across this more times than I would like, and it makes the love story awkward. I can’t fully enjoy the book because I feel wrong.
Insta-love – Ok, not every girl or woman falls in love with a guy within 5 minutes of meeting him, nor does she obsess over how kissable his lips are….annoying.
