We all have our bookish pet peeves, whether it be folded page corners, broken spines, insta-love, writing style, etc…but I feel like we all have that ONE that can make or break a book for you. Mine broke Miss Peregrine’s and I’m super disappointed about it.
One of my big bookish pet peeves is a book that has an incredible concept but fails in 1st person execution. There are a lot of really wonderful 1st person books out there, a few of my favourites actually. However my big pet peeve is immature, underdeveloped 1st person. Unfortunately for me, Miss Peregrine’s fall in that category.
Stunning concept and great book atmosphere but horrible 1st person narrative. With the movie coming out soon (which looks stunning) I really wanted to love this series but I just can’t 😭😓.
What are your big bookish pet peeves?
Until next time,
