Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks Top Ten is about bookish Pet Peeves.
1) Reviewers and book bloggers that claim they love every book they read – you do not love every book and if you don’t like a book don’t be afraid to tell other people that.
2) People that fold the pages of books in public – this makes me want to take the book away from you and straighten out its pages.
3) Grammatical errors/spelling mistakes – I understand that little mistakes can be missed during the editing however it still bugs me when I come across grammatical errors or spelling mistakes in a book.
4) Books that have too many characters – I love getting to know characters and find this easier to do when there are only a few main characters rather than having to flip back and forward to familiarise myself with characters.
5) Readers who judge other readers on their favourite genre – this really annoys me, you shouldn’t judge people just because their favourite genre is the genre that you hate the most. This is what makes us all unique and makes life interesting.
6) People who get offended by the reviews that are published – everyone has their own opinions and this may result in negative reviews for a particular novel. However just beacuse one person doesn’t like the novel doesn’t mean that every single person that reads the novel is going to hate it.
7) Books that get turned into a movie and their cover get replaced by a movie poster – I never buy a book that has the movie poster as a cover it annoys me as the original cover always seems to be so much better.
8) Super long chapters – I like to read books in chapters not stop in the middle of a chapter and this can be hard when a book has super long chapters. These chapters could easily be split into smaller chapters.
9) People who judge a book by its cover – give the book a chance it might be the best thing you have ever read.
10) Stickers – they always seem to be covering part of the synopsis and can be really hard to peel off and this ends up ripping the book.
What are your bookish pet peeves?
