Booking Through Thursday: Literary Pet Peeves
This week, BTT asks: What are your literary “pet peeves”?
Recently lack of character motivation has definitely been on my list of pet peeves. In real life, I like to know why people do what they do. This extends to book characters as well. I want to know why they do what they do. If they do something crazy out of the blue, fine but I want to know why they went crazy. I think explaining motivations really helps the character to feel more real.
What say you?
