Book Blogger Hop ~ Disliking Books


The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.

Do you continue with a book even though you aren’t liking it? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

When I first started blogging, I was signed up for tons of tours. I would force myself to finish a book even if I didn’t like it – because of the tour. There are two books in particular that immediately come to mind that I don’t even know how I finished them because I disliked the books so much.

Now, though, I don’t have this problem. I will give it a chance a good little chunk into the book unless something immediately puts me off and there isn’t much redemption within a few pages. If I get into the book and I still am not all that interested, I ditch it. I feel bad that I wasted my time when I could have been reading another great book, but it’s also important to weed out the things you don’t like in life, too.

One thought on “Book Blogger Hop ~ Disliking Books

  1. Totally agree with this and I feel like in the early days I never consider DNFing either. I did do skim reading though where I basically just picked up pieces of dialogue just to get to the end of the story.

    Here’s my Book Blogger Hop

    Have a GREAT day!
