Garbage

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.”

No! 

“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.
