A Reader’s Worst Nightmare [5]


I needed content for October, because I’m trying to do #blogtober. My mind is stuck on Halloween, so I thought of doing some of the top (in my opinion) pet peeves i.e. nightmares (here’s the Halloween part) that readers have/deal with. I know there’s more pet peeves than how many I can post weekly in October, so maybe I’ll keep going after the month ends until I run out of ideas. We’ll see. Here’s nightmare number five:



You’ve just gotten to a really good part in your book, and something/someone interrupts you. It really sucks! Interruptions are one of the most annoying things that can happen to readers, and they usually occur at the most inconvenient times too. You’re not at the end of the chapter, you’re at a really juicy section, you’ve only got a couple pages of the book left, etc. Whether the interruption comes in the form of work, a person who won’t stop talking to you (go away already haha), your stomach won’t stop demanding food, and so on, having to put a book down before you’re ready to part from that literary world is awful.


I’m not sure if I’m going to do anymore of these, although I have at least a few more reader nightmares. Let me know what one of your least favorite interruptions is in the comments below. And if you enjoyed reading these, tell me that too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Oh this is so annoying. I try to read in places where I’m alone, but even then someone can enter the room to ask you something. So I totally get this nightmare.
