6/21 What are book no-nos that make you figuratively want to toss a book across the room?
I would have to say super nonconsensual smexy scenes and then one character being all okay with it after like a day. NO!!! *tosses book*
OR when one person is SUPER abusive and just flat out mean and terrible and the other character is all "That's okay. I lurve him/her/it". >_> And I don't mean tropes with enemies becoming friends or lovers. What I mean is a character literally abusing and hurting the person they so-called love and the abusee is all okay with it and makes excuses. Can't deal with that. *tosses book*
OR when a character is SO shitty and does shitty things and has shitty excuses. There was one book where a character decided to just walk away from his responsibilities as a father. "Oh, he's better off. I work way too much." WHAT? It's not like you are a druggie or whatever....but a workaholic? So just because you are TOO busy to spend time with the kid you are just gonna walk??? Literally, nope. *tosses book*
Those are just just the top three I could think of right away.
