Bookish things that make me mad

Because I’m in a little bit of a grumpy mood I figured I would discuss some of the things about books that make me mad! Without further ado...


I absolutely hate when publishers do this!  I don’t care if the series has taken years to come out or if they want to do a cover change after the last book, it is never a good idea. I love when all of my books match and look pretty on my shelf, and they can’t be that way if publishers keep changing the covers on us.


Now don’t get me wrong, I love having a couple editions of my favorite book on my shelves, but when they make 4+ different editions with different special content then it’s a bit excessive (Lord of Shadows I’m looking at you.).  It really just gets to be a money grab at that point. I’ve had a few books that I wanted to get all of them for the special content, but there was no way I could with my budget.


I know this really can’t be helped, but I want my series right away. I’m a binge reader so I like to have the complete series before I even start it so that way I don’t have to wait. But with being a blogger I’ve gotten a ton of ARCs to read and I have to wait even longer for the next book to come out after I read the ARC. I wish it took a lot less time, but I’m glad I don’t have to wait too long for the next book.


I have lost so many favorite characters to the author’s pen. I’m still bitter over a bunch of their horrible deaths. I get that there are some needed deaths to make other characters grow, but, dang, does it hurt. There have been many tears shed and will be more as long as I keep reading books.


I can’t stand when you get to the end of a book and then flip back through pages because you think some may be missing. I’ve read a great number of books that just ended so abruptly-and not even with a good cliffhanger-that I had to check to see if I missed something. I love it when a story wraps up nice and neat, but I can’t stand loose ends especially if it is the last book in a series.

What bookish things make you mad?
