About two months ago Andrea, over at Andrea’s Nirvana tagged me in the Nope Book Tag. You wouldn’t believe how many questions were on this list!!! Just click on the link above and you’ll see what I mean. You’ll also have a chance to check out Andrea’s very cool blog.
I’ve committed a bit of a short cut and pulled out a few questions to answer. Thanks for the assignment Andrea! 😉
NOPE. Genre: A genre you will never read.
Too afraid to read Horror. I’m a big scared cat like that.
NOPE. Popular pairing: A “ship” you don’t support.
I wouldn’t say I don’t support it, but I never really felt it was particularly genuine: Ron and Hermione. It made sense, kind of… but still seemed a bit ‘off’.
NOPE. Book format: Book formatting you hate and avoid buying until it comes out in a different edition
I think it’s called the mass market paperback. You know the one… where you can hardly open up the book and when you do, it instantly cracks the spine. But it’s cheaper than the others so….
NOPE. Trope: A trope that makes you go NOPE.
Probably the love triangle, again.
NOPE. Cliche/pet peeve: A cliche or writing pet peeve that always makes you roll your eyes.
In a romance story, when there’s this out of the blue declaration of being in love. I want to see the build up. I want it to be blatantly obvious through actions and other words, before the MC is struck by the realization that he /she really is in love with the other person.
NOPE. Protagonist: A main character you dislike and drives you crazy.
Really was not a fan of the MC in Chocolate With a Side of Murder.
NOPE. Villain: A scary villain/antagonist you would hate to cross and would make you run in the opposite direction.
Dolores Umbridge. ‘Nuff said!
If this tag, looks like one you want to do, go for it! You can answer these seven questions or any (or all) from the full list on Andrea’s blog.
