Booking Through Thursday

Q:  What are your literary "pet peeves"?

Too many characters in a story , that it is hard keeping up with them.
Unnecessary swearing.
A bad ending.


  1. Too many characters - why did I forget that?!

  2. I so agree. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great weekend.

  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog! I agree when there are too many characters it get's really hectic for me. I feel like I need to take notes to keep track of who is who and what they're doing.

  4. Oh yes. Bad endings are the worst. I wouldn't say it's a pet peeve of mine, though. More like a wild-animal-on-the-loose-tearing-up-the-city peeve!!

    Thanks for stopping by my BTT.

  5. Thanks for stopping by. I'm not bothered by a lot of characters, as long as they all have a story. (Like George RR Martin's game of Thrones).

  6. yes too many characters, weird names, cheating gf/bf, and long narrative paragraphs with very little dialogue. it makes me sleepy!!!

  7. I agree with both of your pet peeves, and especially the swearing, hate it.

  8. I forgot too many characters, good one. I don't know what is worse too many characters or characters with similar names.

    Thank for stopping by and happy reading.

    1. Hazel, Shenell- My biggest peeve.

      Bermudaonion- Thanks!

      CMash- You too!

      Just another teenage bookworm, iamJen- I agree!

      Megan- A story helps.

      GiGi Ann- No reason for it.

      Monique- Both aren't good.

  9. Oh yeah, too many characters - totally agree with you on that. It's even worse if they turn out to be dull. :/

  10. Good answer!

    Im with you on the characters and I dont mind occasional swearing through a book but like you said unnecessary swearing is annoying.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
