Booking Through Thursday - Plain or Pretty?

Which do you prefer? Lurid, fruity prose, awash in imagery and sensuous textures and colors? Or straight-forward, clean, simple prose?

Straight-forward and simple for sure. I seriously skip most descriptive paragraphs in all books I read. In my head I read, blah blah blah. I'm terrible I know.


I hate descriptions. True story.


What about you?

I'm defiantly with you and Julie (who commented above). Sometimes very adjectivy paragraphs bore me so i'de rather the simple and clean choice. Great post!

Lol I'm totally the same way. I mean a small bit of description is obviously useful, but a whole paragraph- I totally agree, unnecessary!
