You know, I never really noticed the full moon thing. It makes me laugh.

Good choices! Didn’t even really take in that nearly all the werewolf books have a full moon on them! Like it occasionally, but like you said it can get annoying after awhile!
Here’s my Top 5 Sundays
Jessica@a GREAT read
I really think that between You, Jess, and Larissa you have nailed it all down. These are all of the most annoying things ever about UP/PNR!
Thanks for the great post Carmel!
PS. I tweeted about this!
I agree! Those ridiculous hero names made me roll my eyes so much that I just gave up on the BDB series, it was too ridiculous and forced. ugh..
I also tweeted about your post here: http://twitter.com/Stella_ExLibris/status/52057954815451136

You have a great list!! The easy thing – I love this… I used something similar – but you said it so much more succinctly 🙂
the Full moon thing and blood thing – I never noticed – but now I’m going to notice them all over the place. 🙂

Another pet peeve. The slutty outfits. Doesn’t anyone wear jeans instead of leather.

Don’t blame the publishers for the full moon thing. It’s the readers who’re the problem. Nightshade had an awesome, moonless cover, and people complained they didn’t know it was a werewolf book. Hence the new, inferior, blatant cover art. Idiots. >_< -LupLun
