Welcome back! Hope you are doing well! Today, I have an exciting post for you!
But before that, I have a VERY special announcement! I have officially reached 100 followers on my blog! I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has been on this journey with me, and has helped me along the way! I have a lot of things planned for the future and I hope you stick around!
For Today, I’ll be discussing some of my bookish pet peeves! All readers have different Bookish Pet Peeves that annoy them, and I’ll be sharing some of mine! This discussion idea was suggested by Cherry @ Letters to the Lost! Go check out her blog, if you haven’t already!
Let’s get started!
Stickers on Books
Sometimes when you buy a book, they stick stickers on the book cover, Which is the most irritating thing in the world! They are always so difficult to remove and leave this ugly mark. These stickers usually tend to be price tags and barcodes. I wish they would find an alternative to this so we can avoid those sticky marks.
Dog Earring Pages + Bending Book Cover
I hate when people use Dog Earring as a bookmark. Even if you don’t have a bookmark, you can use other items in your house. Some examples could include Post-it Notes, Price Tags, Paper Towel, and anything like that.
It’s frustrating when people mess up the book when there are simple solutions to avoid it!
Some people even bend the book cover because they like to fold over the book. Please don’t do that! You are damaging the book even more because not only does the cover bend, but you are cracking the spine! This will lead to the book falling apart.
Love Triangles + Insta Love
I’m sure this is the case for most people, but I despise these two tropes.
In love triangles, you end up having to pick a side, and if the main character doesn’t end up with that character, it’s disappointing. This trope is also so overused, and you see it many times in YA. But you can even have more than Love triangles. The last book I read had a love square?!?! I mean, that’s too much!
If you don’t already know, Insta Love stands for Instant Love. It’s when a romantic relationship forms very quickly with no development. It’s a cheap and easy way of putting together two characters without having to do the work.
Being interrupted while reading
When someone tries to talk to me while reading, that gets me very annoyed. As you can see, I’m trying to read here. At least wait until I finished the chapter and place down my book. If it’s an emergency, then it’s okay, but otherwise…
When a book starts off well…but it ends bad
Your reading and the book has this fantastic start, and it just keeps getting better. But then it all comes crashing down when you get to the end. You spent all this time reading, and then you end up being majorly disappointed.
Books that have movies covers
9 times out of 10, if a book has a movie cover, it doesn’t look the best. I don’t want to see actors in the movie. Half the time don’t match their character counterparts. I would rather see art on the cover done by professional artists.
Having to wait for the next book in the series
I’m not the most patient person when waiting for the next book in the series. When the last book in the series ends in a cliffhanger, it keeps me waiting in anticipation, wanting to know what will happen.
I’m sure most people would agree, but spoilers are the worst. No one wants to be spoiled about a book that they haven’t read yet. So please, do not spoil any parts of a book that people haven’t read. It’s plain rude!
