Bookish Pet Peeves – Top 5 Tuesday

I missed having a topic to do for Top 5 Tuesday last week, did you? Oh, bookish pet peeves. Mistreat my book and we might not be friends anymore.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it! Don’t forget to check out her upcoming topics if you’re interested in participating in future Top 5’s! Be sure to check out her post here!

Bookish Pet Peeves:

Stickers on Covers

Oh yeah, so easy to peel… it totally doesn’t leave a gross residue on my book. Thanks, guys.

Folding the Pages

Please don’t.

Writing in the Book

Oh gosh, no. I know you want to remember things, but that’s what post-it notes are for.

Cover Changes

Sometimes it makes me so happy to see a change, but guys I really want my books to match!

Cracked Spines

Yes, yes you think it’s lovely but then I have to spend hours at the library trying to glue the poor thing back together because it inevitably has fallen apart from the abuse. And what usually happens is we have to replace it or more likely no longer have the book because we can’t afford that.


What books have succumbed to your bookish pet peeves? Have any friendships been ruined as a result? Let me know in the comments!

    • It may not be the way I treat my own books but I think you can do what you want with your property. I’m glad that you take care books when you borrow them. I’ve lent books to people and never gotten them back… So I’m not prone to do it anymore.

  1. Yes, yes, this whole list, yes!! My skin is crawling right now at the thought of stickers on a cover. Why the hell is this a thing!?! And I laughed so hard at the “folding the pages” comment. Simply put – please don’t! LOL!
    Thanks for participating – added you to the list!

    I want to tell those people —-that’s why humans invented sticky notes—– to protect books from being abused by pens ❤ ❤ ADORE your blog and bio!!!! ❤
