| LET’S TALK | BOOKISH PET PEEVES

let's talk bookish pet peevesHello everyone ! How was your week end ? Mine was and still is pretty hectic ! But I’m lucky because I’m not working until wednesday haha !

Today I want to talk about my bookish pet peeves, and also learn about yours ! I am almost “maniac” when it comes to my book. I want them to stay as pristine as possible ! And let’s face it, it’s almost an impossible mission !

Here are the things that annoy me the most

Broken spines

After all the troubles you went through to avoid it, it’s finally here. The ugly broken spine.
I freaking HATE it. But sometimes it’s not possible to avoid it, even though you take great care of not opening the book too much !
Seriously, it makes me want to buy another copy of said book haha ! But my bank account wouldn’t agree !

When the plastic peels off

Okay I know I’m not the only with this problem ! I don’t know if that’s because I have sweaty hands or if it’s for another reason but on some books, the plastic on the cover starts to peel off …And that’s ugly and I hate it !

On the book featured on the photo, I tried to “repair” it thanks to the hair straightener technique. It works most of the time (even thoug you can sometimes still see what I would call aftermaths, but they are discreet.)

 

Sun burns

Well at least that’s how I call it. I have a big row of books right under my window.
And I just recently noticed that the top of the pages were yellowish… Thanks sun, really.
It’s not pretty at all but it’s not as visible as a book spine when displayed on my shelf ! I’m trying to protect my books, but I won’t put a fabric or something else on top of it, right ?!

 

A mismatched series

Yep. I’m sure it also annoys you, right ?
Now I’m really cautious when I’m ordering a book. I look very carefully to the publisher, and if I have to wait a whole year to get the right paperback version of a book, then I will. Yeah I’m looking at you Queen Of Shadows and The Raven King !

 

 

And that’s it ! I hope you enjoyed this post !
What about you ? What are your bookish pet peeves ?

  1. Mismatched series send shivers down my spine, haha! It ruins the effect when the publisher decides to change the graphics out of nowhere.
    Great post! 🙂
