Musing Mondays: Bookish Pet Peeves, and Confessions…

A few weeks ago on Musing Mondays there was a quiz. Since I missed it then I thought it would be fun to go ahead and answer half of them now, and I’ll do the other half sometime in the future.

Top 3 bookish pet peeves?

1) No HEA at the end of a stand alone or at the end of a series.

2) Too much sex…not enough story.

3) Repetitive/overused words, or unsexy words used in sex scenes.

Perfect reading spot?

My favorite 3 reading spots are: In my nice comfy bed, soaking in a bubble bath, on my balcony.

3 Bookish confessions?

1) If I don’t have my post it flags handy I will dog ear the pages in a print book.

2) I was a huge mystery/thriller and paranormal reader until just a few months before I started blogging. Then I started reading more and more romance…and the rest is history 😉

3) Until a few months before I became a book blogger I didn’t understand why anybody blogged about anything or who would want to read them…O…the irony of that one!!!

When was the last time you cried during a book?

I tear up pretty easy when I’m reading a story that moves me, so I don’t even think about that to be honest.

Feel free to share your answers to the questions in the comments.

    I get weary of sex, sex, sex and a smidgen of plot, too. And I want romance with my sex. If it’s just sex, it comes off as porno to me. I especially don’t like heroines who spread them within minutes or hours of meeting the hero. Can we say “ho”? I thought we could! 🙂


  2. I am a writer, so I can’t begin to tell you how refreshing it is to learn that one of your pet peeves is too much sex and not enough substance. Yes! I try to give my characters depth, so my storylines don’t revolve around sex. ha!


  3. Bubble bath — my absolute most favorite reading place… until I got a Kindle. No good can come from taking it into the tub, so now I have a collection of old grocery store paperbacks riddled with water spots.
