Booking Through Thursday: Pet Peeve

Pic from here

This week's Booking Through Thursday question:

What are your literary 'pet peeves'?

My answer:

A bad ending to a book.
Too many characters that I'm not able to remember who is who.
Irritating or stupid characters.
Too much description of a boring scene.
Unnecessary description of anything in the story.
Sappy conversations meant to melt the heart but unfortunately, only makes me cringe uncomfortably.

Well, what are your literary 'pet peeves'?

P.S. I spend about 10 minutes writing about bookish 'pet peeves' before realizing that the question meant literary 'pet peeves'!


  1. Those are all pet peeves I have to agree with. You can see my pet peeves here
    Happy reading!

  2. Yeah, it bugs me when there are loads of characters. This is espcially problematic when it's a series and there's a big gap between books. I sometimes have to re-read the earlier ones to remind me who's who. Here's mine: Small Blonde Hippy

  3. Two of these are mine also!

  4. I completely agree with you, especially with the too many characters and boring descriptions. Thanks for stopping by my blog and very nice to meet a fellow Malaysian book blogger. Cheers!

  5. Oh yes, cringe worthy conversation is a killer. They make me laugh when actually, deep inside, I want to cry! XD I'm a Twitter follower ;) Hop on over if you have the time:

  6. Have to agree with your list. And a bad ending, or no ending, has to my fav of your list.

  8. I actually mentioned the whole being uncomfortable thing, too. It's terrible.
    My BTT.

  9. A bad ending to a book. (This is why whenever someone asks me if a book I'm reading is good I have to say "I don't know yet." A bad ending can ruin an entire book.
    Too many characters that I'm not able to remember who is who. (This is so hard especially if all the names are similar.)
    Irritating or stupid characters. (This is the absolute worse, especially if it's the main character.)

    Great list of peeves.
