Booking Through Thursday: Good or Bad

btt button
This week's question: "I’ve seen many bloggers say that what draws them to certain books or authors is good writing, and what causes them to stop reading a certain book or author is bad writing. What constitutes good writing and bad writing to you?"

My answer: Plain and simple: Good writing is when you are so absorbed in a book you can't put it down, bad writing is when you have to re-read passages over again because they don't flow, repeated use of the same more unusual adjectives within a few pages, and poor plot and character development!

Short and sweet this week-what do you think?

  1. I don't know if I can put it down to one thing or another but I do agree that if I am totally into a book and cannot put it down, it is a GOOD book, but lately I have to really stick it out for quite a few chapters and then it can still be a good book or one I don't care ever to see again. What book is out there that I will be totally into within the first or second chapter? Also, Yah, Oprah what's with the latest picks????
