I have a few book pet peeves. I pretty much went over then in this post. Maybe I missed something, so let’s go over this again.

I dislike insta-love– there are much better ways to get people to hook-up. Make me believe it, okay?

Characters without depth. I want to really know my characters, but I don’t need their life stories. If someone dies and I am suppose to be sad along with the characters left, please give them more than 2 lines in an exchange.

Boring books. Don’t drown me in details. Nobody likes that. If I am 3/4 way through the book and nothing has happened, then that just sucks.

Books that move too fast. I can’t keep up. She was a normal girl, we were getting to know each other, and then bam! Too many characters being thrown at me, too many locations, too much too soon.

Switching first person narration without warning. I want to knows who’s head I am in.

400 page books that could have been 200 or vise-versa. I guess it is hard for an author to cut it off or know just when to expound a story, but it is still irritating.

Bad covers. I am definitely drawn to a book with a great cover. If I don’t find it visually appealing, I probably won’t bother to read it.

Predictable stories. I shouldn’t be able to call the ending by the end of the first chapter.

Love Triangles. Just don’t. There is always frustrating. They bring unnecessary drama to a story. No one likes these, please stop writing them.


I can’t think of anything else right now. Those are recent pet peeves I have found in books.
