Bookish Pet Peeves

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

There are a couple of things in books that slightly annoy me. Not enough to never read again, but just enough that I need to breathe out strongly. You know the way I mean.

Do you share any of these peeves? Let me know your thoughts.

Tag Thursday: I Dare You Tag

Thanks so much to Bookmurmation for this tag. I’ve seen it floating around a few times, but I’ve never actually taken it myself. Now seems like the perfect time.

When I was in school, I of course played Truth or Dare so many times. I always went for truth, so having to do a couple of dares now feels a little out of my comfort zone for sure.

Authors I’ll Never Read

Everyone has their favourite authors, but there are also those who you just don’t gel with for some reason.

I’ve spoken at length about the authors whose books I cannot miss, but I’ve not really mentioned the ones I don’t think I’ll ever pick up. Some on this list I’ve read some from but not really loved them, others I just know aren’t for me.

I’ve decided to put my own spin on it to create a list of the books I’d bring to stave off the boredom of a desert island.

You can also choose one luxury item that doesn’t help you to escape the island, so there goes my request for a copy of How to Build a Boat.

November 2020 Reading Wrap Up

In November, I wanted most, if not all, of my reading to come from my Netgalley shelf. I felt it was necessary to take a couple of books off it, as my score lay around 65 per cent for such a long time.

I also discovered the 1,000 Doors Readathon run by Emma, Meg, and Tamsin during the month. Thankfully it was a Choose Your Own Adventure readathon, so I could fit books in as much as possible from my TBR.

Shall we see how it went?
