Ugh. I am on a junk-reading spree. I’ve been re-reading all of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series – these are some seriously trashy romance books. I really enjoy them, but they also frustrate me . The sci-fi premise is good, but the writing could be so much better! For example, Singh’s repeated use of the word “fisted” as a verb drives me up the wall: “Her hands fisted at her sides.” “His hands fisted.”
“She clenched her fists” or “His hands curled into fists.”
Fisted is not a word that one should throw around casually. Just Google it – go ahead, I’ll wait… Yeah.
