Blogtober Day Five (Part Two): Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Bookish Pet Peeves

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is my top ten bookish pet peeves.

Series that change cover designs mid way through publication.

Series with books of varying heights.

Sequels that continually have their publication date pushed back.

Dust jackets,

But also, books that don’t have dust jackets.

Books with incredibly small font,

And, books with very large font.

Sequel’s that spend an unnecessary amount of pages explaining what happened in the previous books.

Info dumping that’s disguised as world building.

Stickers on books covers (removable AND non-removable ones).

What are your bookish pet peeves?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

  1. Ugh. Info dumps 🤦🏼‍♀️

    But, also the inverse: books that plunge you into super complex worlds, and provide like ZERO explanation. (I have no idea what a xjfnfheks is. Please, describe it to me.)

      1. The first 300 pages of Crescent City are literally the worst. I’ve tried to re-read it several times, but almost always stay out around the 120-150 mark.

Have any thoughts?
