How Picky Are You?
I couldn't help but take part in YA Highway's Road Trip Wednesday because I love to hear the opinions of writers and readers.
Just how picky are you with characters names and appearances? If the lead has a name you don't like or an appearance that doesn't appeal to you, will you put the book back down?
Appearance doesn't bother me, although I always hope there will be a red-headed character (who isn't weak/a bully/unimportant/killed instantly) because literature lacks them (but you better believe I'll make up for that!). I'm terrible with names and although I'm trying to get less snobby (I ADMIT IT! I'M A NAME SNOB!), I still won't read a book if the character's name sounds dull.
