Bookish Pet Peeves
I don’t actually think I have any huge, serious pet peeves, but this topic was good for a bit of a grumble.
When film adaption covers replace the original in store and you can’t get hold of the pretty one RIGHT AWAY
Stickers. Printed, stuck-on or part of the design. They all suck.
When the U.S. (or anywhere) gets a nicer cover than the UK one I get.
When you order online and they send you an edition with a cover you weren’t expecting.
When the book you want doesn’t come in every format. It’s always the one I want that’s missing: audiobook, paperback or kindle.
Books with those funny textured covers, where every single fingerprint shows as a smear.
When I jump into a sequel, and it takes ages for the characters I know to show up.
Reading a review before the book, and having it colour your reading.
A sequel that never actually comes out….
When the book shop displays are full of hugely popular books that don’t even need the promotion.
