Top Ten Tuesday: My Top Ten Bookish Pet Peeves

This meme was started by The Broke and the Bookish

1. Girls who fall in love with A-holes. There's a difference between A-holes and bad boys. Bad boys are fine, but not guys who treat everyone like crap, including the main character (and themselves in most cases).

2. Obvious "winner" in a love triangle/ Bad boy over nice guy. I like love triangles that are more evenly matched. It's not as fun when I know from the beginning which guy the girl likes the most. It's also annoying that the "winner" in most cases is the bad boy.

3. One book that should be a series or vise versa. In most cases there are series with 3-4 books that could have been one book, or at least 2. And there are a couple of books I've read that would have been better if the story had been spread out into a couple of books

4. Hardback covers. They're pretty but they get in my way!
5. Unnecessary kills. It's just annoying when a characters dies for (seemingly) no reason
6. When the story never moves forward. I can't stand when the first book in the series is at a standstill until the very last few chapters.

7. When a bad movie discourages potential readers. This should probably be the other way around because I also don't like it when readers think that a movie is exactly like the book and decide not to give the story another try.

8. Readers who read a book JUST because it was a movie. I think most of us have read a book because we heard about the movie. I just don't like the readers who doesn't read ANY books (or don't even know they exist) until it becomes a movie. I know people who've read the HP books and Twilight series, but won't read anything else until they see the "cool" movie trailer.

9.Books that don't get enough coverage. It's sad that so many excellent books go unnoticed every year.

10. Readers who think their opinion is law. "Trust me, I read this so you wouldn't have too." How do you know that?!! A reader can't assure other people they won't like a book unless they're the same person... Which means they have a bigger problem on there hands.

  1. I'm the opposite with #8. I make sure that I read the book before I see the movie. If I end up seeing the movie before I've read the book, I won't read the book.
