Feature and Follow Friday #4

Hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee

Question: 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!

I've never really thought about my pet peeves when it comes to ready, unless I find the book rather boring, that bugs me to no end. So let me take a minute and ponder this question....
  1. Anti-climatic: For some I don't think it bothers them, but for me it dries my head in. The book is going at an amazing pace and I'm getting ready for this huge climax and nothing. Its a let down to have my heart ponding for what is store to only find out that the author made a terrible decision to decrease the suspense for something useless that could have been left out the book.
  2. Spelling errors: I've noticed these lately when it comes to reading first edition books. I understand a few mistakes here and there with ARC's but with an actual book that has been printed for the public that should be a no on so many levels. The authors have editors for a reason and I'm sure a few people should go through the manuscript before its given the green light for mass production?


  1. Spelling errors is one of mine also. Enjoy! your week-end.

  2. I definitely agree with #1. Nothing quite so annoying as a damp squib at the end of a story. New follower. If you'd like to pay me a visit I'm over at: http:\\

  3. Spelling errors, along with grammar problems, are my pet peeve as well! I'm of the same mind that for the most part, there are enough people reading through a book before publication that pretty much everything should be caught. I'll give a by for a couple of mistakes in a first run, but after that... :)
