Which are the most common expressions you find used in every book.. So much that now we should be calling them over-used!LOL Which are the expressions or words that set your teeth on edge?LOL

Mine would be awesome (I have read it so much in the books that now i think a whole book should be written on it!), and Bloody Hell (Used by nearly every character when he or she is angry)

i think when describing romantic moments, authors use the same stuff...

for example: her heart skipped a beat, her heart pounded against her chest

its become pretty cliched now
