Today’s discussion is about pet peeves, my bookish pet peeves, and my blogging pet peeves. We all have them, so I thought it would be interesting if I discussed mine. I’m going to start off with my blogging pet peeves because those outweigh my bookish pet peeves.

Yes, I have blogging pet peeves, they might seem ridiculous to some but they are things that bother me.

Pet peeve #1 People following my blog and not interacting with my posts. What’s the point of following my blog if you’re not going to comment on any of my posts? To me, the whole point of blogging is to comment on each other’s posts and interact with each other. I make time to read and comment on blog posts.

Pet peeve #2: The second I publish a post it already has a like, did you even read the post?

Pet peeve #3: The expectation that if you follow my blog, I’m going to follow your blog back. No, I am not going to follow your blog just because you followed me. I am extremely particular about the blogs that I follow.

Pet Peeve #4: Multiple posts per day. I did this one or twice and then figured out a way to avoid multiple posts per day.

Bookish Pet Peeves, I feel like these are more common in the community.

Bookish Pet peeve #1: Dog-eared pages, I think it’s so lazy when people do this. I cringe when I see library books with dog-eared pages. Bookmarks exist for a reason.

Pet peeve #2: Writing in books. The only time I have ever written in a book was to underline things in textbooks, and if I needed to highlight something I would photocopy the pages. I’ve never written in any of my novels and never will.

These are just my opinions and pet peeves. Do you have any blogging/bookish pet peeves?


Today is my last Week of Potter post.  I didn’t post on Thursday like I originally had planned.  This post was supposed to go up on Thursday, instead it is going up today.  For my last post, I thought it would be interesting to do write about my Harry Potter pet peeves.


Yes, I have a couple Harry Potter pet peeves.  I think my biggest pet peeve would have to be when people think that it counts because they have seen the movies, but haven’t read the books.  This is something that drives me absolutely insane.  While the movies are done extremely well,  there are so many holes in them that only the books can fill.  People have asked me “does it count that I’ve seen the movies, but haven’t read the books?” And my answer is always no.  Another pet peeve of mine, which isn’t as big as my first pet peeve, is the lack of diversity.  I would have loved it if the books had more racially diverse characters.  While there were some characters of the minority, they had smaller roles, and it would have been nice to see some of them have larger, more important roles. I also hate when people spoil things when you don’t want to be spoiled, for me it’s important to make sure people have read all the books before I discuss things with them so they aren’t spoiled.  What are some of your Harry Potter pet peeves?

**I also have not yet finished reading the Cursed Child, so please no Cursed Child discussion in the comments, this also ensures that others aren’t spoiled as well.**
