If you are anything like me and carry a book around with you everywhere you go, I’m sure that this list of pet peeves will make you cringe. Let me know which one you relate to most in the comments!
- Stickers on books
This is my number one pet peeve ever. Who thought it would be a good idea to put stickers on books? Especially when they are hard to come off or leave the glue residue. It makes me so mad.
- People who try to talk to you while reading
When other people listen to music with headphones on, I don’t disturb them. So why do people think it’s ok to bother me when I’m in the middle of a sentence? My sister does this to me the most.
- When someone asks “why do you even like to read”
I need it to live and breathe. The real question is why don’t you read? Reading is an escape for me and it has helped me cope with hard times. That’s why.
- When you have to wait a year for the next book of a series to come out.
*cough cough* To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before *cough cough*
- Someone who says they liked the movie better
I BET YOU DIDN’T EVEN READ THE BOOK!!
The absolute worst. At least put a warning before you tell someone the ending of a book or movie. It’s just cruel.
- Having a friend that doesn’t like your favorite book
I actually consider not being friends with them anymore. It takes everything in me not to scream at them.
- When people ask to borrow your books
I hate this so so much because I have very little trust in people. But at the same time, I can’t say no because I want them to experience the love I have for the book. I am so afraid that they will ruin it or not give it back though. This one is a huge struggle.
- Being judged for not going out so you can read
I usually have to come up with an excuse, so the only person who judges me is my sister. But it’s worth it.
- Books you don’t like that end in cliffhangers
I hate when I’m reading a book that I didn’t enjoy at all has a crazy ending that has me so SHOOK that I need to read the next one. I need to know what happens next but I don’t want to suffer through another 300 pages of boring writing to find out.
