Follow Friday #5

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!

Hmm, this is a little difficult for me to answer.  I don't usually have many pet peeves when it comes to the books I read. 

I can say that I definitely don't enjoy when an author drags on a series.  No matter how beloved the books are, all things should come to an end.

I also hate when I can't connect to the characters I'm reading about because I barely know anything about them.  Ugh, and I despise typos just because I end up spending an unnecessary amount of time staring at them, as if I could magically change the ink on the page.

Unlike some others, personally, I don't see anything wrong with love triangles and/or falling in love instantly.  I'm a hopeless romantic and I just eat that stuff up.  Sure, it may not happen often in reality, but I'm sure it happens from time to time.

What are your bookish pet peeves?

    I agree about the series thing. Sometimes dragging them out actually hurts the plots.

    Here's mine:

  4. I hate it when authors drag series out! Especially when the series already wraps up nicely and doesn't need to be continued. No matter how much I love the characters, eventually I'm going to either become bored or annoyed with them!

  5. Although I do like a good series, I agree that sometimes enough is enough :-)

    Beautiful blog! Thanks for following. Following you back :-) Have a great weekend!

  6. Thank you for stopping by, I'm a new follower.

    I do agree with you, some series are too long and I am also a romantic.

    I love your blog design :)
