3. Irregular book sizes for a series

You have not experienced true pain until you realize your series are in different book sizes.

4. Dog-earring pages

There are people who put sticky flags on their books and then there are these monsters. No. Just. NO.

5. Movie covers for books

Death itself would seem like a better option. But really, why ruin a perfectly already nice book cover with a movie poster? We all know the book came before the movie anyway!

6. Sold out copies everywhere or when bookstores don’t have the book on its release day.

As someone who lives in the Philippines, I’ve suffered these pet peeves more than I can count. I would even go as far as pre-ordering the book numerous times from different bookstores just to make sure I had a copy on its release day YET I STILL END UP EMPTY HANDED???????

7. And last but not the least, when the protagonist is irrational and makes stupid decisions.

It doesn’t stop us from reading the book, but we all know that we wanna slap that main character a few times for being so irrational.
