Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week. 

What are your literary “pet peeves”?

I had actually planned to do a discussion video on this very topic.  I'm quite a laid back reader, and not a lot really riles me up.
I don't live love triangles.  I think they're used to excess and they simply bug me.  
I don't like book covers that have no relevance whatsoever.  For example, the protagonist is a red head, and they put a blond on the cover.  It just makes me think 'have the cover artists even read this book?!?'
And lastly I don't like repetitive descriptions, for example I recently read Darker After Midnight by Lara Adrian and I must have read the phrase 'throat felt dryer than ash' countless times.


  1. Repetive descriptions bug me to. The book on I'm on at the moment must have said, "He was silent for a long moment" about a hundred times so far. Here's mine: Small Blonde Hippy

  2. You made valid points. I don't those either!

    Here is my BTT post!

  3. I don't think I've read anything with repetitive phrases, but yeah that would peeve me too. Here’s my BTT

  4. That is a good peeve, repetitive phrases.

  5. All of those things you mentioned drive me nuts, too.
    My BTT.
