So I may have lied about the whole 99 problems. So what! maybe I don’t have 99 problems but I have a few and book ARE all of them.
Shall we start at the top?
1.Where have all the bookstores gone!
I just want to be like Belle and swing along the shelves. The closest bookstore to me is 30 min drive away now and it’s tiny!
2. Changing the book cover mid series.
Sure I didn’t want them to match on my shelf anyway *crazed yelling* WHY WOULD I HAVE WANTED THAT *storms away.
3. Different sized first editions.
Seriously? I understand if silly me orders online and doesn’t look at the dimensions but when its the only books available?! REALLY? Really? Not cool publishers, not cool.
4. Being absolutely gorgeous and too pretty not to go home with me
STAHP BEING SO GOOD LOOKING
5.Being absolutely horrible looking but Australia’s next top model on the inside
If I had seen this in the bookstore I wouldn’t pick it up and this is probably the best cover in the series!
I have bought I am number 4 and the Lux series as e books due to the covers and I’m hoping for a cover change so I can have a physical copy.
6.Mass Marketing prints WHY IS YOUR WRITING SO TINSY TINY
I feel like I need a magnifying glass to read all the itty bitty writing on its tiny bible pages!
7. E books being incorrectly formatted and ARC’s that are in PDF format.
They are so hard to read without paragraphs. Reading a double spaced story is on one hand great because hey your a beta reader and that’s amazing but I find it really hard to get into the story and love the formatted version so much more!
Books you’re so beautiful but I can literally feel my wallet tighten with freight as I enter book stores
9.Not enough shelves
I have books in boxes, stacked up along the wall and the dreaded…. DOUBLE STACK
10.Or not enough room for more shelves
11. Spine cracking
This photo genuinely hurts me. Can’t we just develop a spine that doesn’t crack the first time around. No matter how careful I am some of my paperbacks look like I’ve bent them to oblivion.
12. Not being waterproof
Did you ever have those children books that are plastic and water proof? How fun are they? Why can’t we have like an adult version so I can read when it rains or in the bath without the fear of damaging my beautiful pages. Also tear proof would be good!
13. New releases coming out at the same time.
Thank you publishers for giving me these amazing delights finally, but how am supposed to choose which one to start fist and what I have to re-read when they all come out at the same time! It’s torture.
I received these beauties at the same time. I choose to read ACOMAF and I’m only now starting The Raven King because of my near book slump caused by that hangover.
14. Having too many series to get through and wanting to read stand alone’s instead
It’s not that I don’t want to read them, I do, I really really do its just that it takes so much commitment when I could pick up a fluffy contemporary instead.
I currently own Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children, The Daughter of smoke and bones, Ruby Red Trilogy the list goes on… I will get to these soon though
15. To many books to read.
The amount of books I want to read are just never going to happen. I wish I was immortal so I could have the time to soak up all the stories I can. Even if I quit my job today I wouldn’t get halfway through the books that I want to read in my lifetime and this upsets me greatly.
Well that was 15 of my
first world book related problems! What bookish pet peves/problems do you have?
