Good morning Sunday!
How are we all in this here final #SixforSunday in January?! How did that happen? Where did January go? (To be fair, I’m glad… because it measn it’s closer to Summer and WARMTH)
Anyway, you’re here for #SixforSunday I see? And what will we be talking about today…
Oooh, controversial one Steph! So things I don’t like to read, or things that put me off books?
- Series that are 378343568 books long
This is INTIMIDATING. Unless I’ve started a series from book 1, I am SO unlikely to get nvolved in a series longer than a trilogy.
- Girl changes for bad boy trope
NO SIR. This bothers me so so much.
- Covers with actual people on the front
I don’t know why… but I just am not a fan.
- When names aren’t capitalised on the front covers of books
I know sometimes this is done for stylistic reasons, but it bothers me so much (I think this is teacher me talking here!)
- Comments which say “you can’t possibly say that every book you read is 4 or 5 stars”
I mean, I can? Because I choose all the books I read, so I’ll generally choose books I think I’m going to enjoy.
- Long chapters
By this I mean like chapters that are LOOONG. I love a short-ish chapter length. (I can’t put a number value on this dislike right now… but long chapters turn me off so much)
LOL. This are such non-committal things, but still, things that I don’t enjoy about the bookish world I live in.
See you next week for February’s #SixforSunday, in which we start celebrating LGBT books! Don’t forget all of the prompts for January – July can be found in this blog post!

I’m with you on number 3 – I wonder if it’s because most covers with real people are versions brought out to accompany a film or TV adaptation? I much prefer to see an illustrated cover, especially when there’s so many stunning ones around!
With you on number 5 too!
My #s4s post is here https://bellisdoesbooks.wordpress.com/2019/01/27/six-for-sunday-bookish-hates/ 🙂
Gotta agree on the long chapters. I don’t like a chapter that’s too long, OR too short. It has to be a happy medium, or I’m not happy.
I am very enjoying your point 5. Lol. YES I CAN. I CAN SAY WHATEVER I LIKE
I am with you on every single point! Thank you for this post and prompt! Looking forward to next week’s prompt!
Short chapter ftw.
The worst is NO CHAPTERS because what is that hell? I read in sets of 5 chapters so it really throws me off and ngl I have DNFed books because of it.

With you on so many here!
2 is only ok in reverse if the bad changes for good or turns out to be not bad its misconception AND doesn’t ask/need her to change
3. YES!! Can I imagine what the character looks like please?
5- this!! can I help being a positive person who generally chooses well?
