Feature & Follow Friday (18)

What is Feature & follow?

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

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!

This weeks blogs are The Y.A. Bookworm Blogger

This weeks question

Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.

A: I'm usually pretty tolerant of writing devices used, with one qualifier, they must be used well!!!! There is nothing worse than reading something here an author has tried too hard to use any device, be it omnipotent narrator or instant mated for life partners. Used well, all writing devices help the story move along!  The instant mated for life writing trick is used wonderfully in some books I've read!

Okay so that's not really a definitive answer but basically it depends!

Eternally Books Update

There are going to be a few changes around Eternally Books in the next couple of weeks with a new design, new features and some really exciting news (I'd love to tell you now but there are a few details to finalise first!).

You can expect to see a lot more of Eternally Books and me (Jenny) coming really soon. If you want to be first to now about the seriously good stuff (you'll want to know I promise!) then make sure you follow the blog, subscribe or  follow me on Twitter and Facebook :-)


  1. I know what you mean - it really depends. Some authors can pull off all sorts of writing styles after all.

  2. Yeah, nothing will go wrong as long as the writing devices are used and done well.

  3. That is a very good point - for example, many bloggers have listed cliffhangers as one of the things that bugs them, but when used well they can be very effective. Maybe we're all just too impatient ;)
    Good luck with the updates! I'm a new follower via GFC.

  4. Great answer!

  5. Hmm I haven't come across a book where the instant mated for life idea has worked :/ All the ones that I've read haven't worked at all. Granted I try to stay clear as soon as a summary hints at something like that just because of all the bad experiences I've had!
