Blogger Hop!

The book blogger hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-for-Books. Thanks for hopping by! If this is your first time here, have a look around :)
Book Blogger Hop


This week's question is: When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?

My answer: I always finish a book, no matter how awful it is. It's probably a bad thing wasting my time on books I don't enjoy but I get very OCD about my book reading. Once I've started a book, I can't leave it unfinished. I also like to give the author the benefit of the doubt, hoping it will get better in the end.

  1. Hopping by to visit and follow! Bravo for reading everything straight through! I'm not as dedicated--I put books down all the time if I'm not obligated to review them. :-)

  3. Stopping by to say hi! I give you credit for actually finishing every book you read! Sometimes I feel really bad when I quit a book halfway through, but thankfully I rarely come across a bad book. I'm a choosey reader :)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I give you credit for always finishing what you read as well! I use to do that but it got really tiring reading books that I wasn't into. Now I just put them down and move on to the next. Maybe someday I will go back to them, and maybe I won't...who knows!

  5. Wow, I'm afraid I don't have the same persistence with books! If I'm not getting into it then I'll usually move onto something else - sometimes I come back later to the book & give it another try, but if it's still not working for me then I just give up lol.

    i always try to finish the book hoping somethings good to get if i read more or if not, id get another one then go back to reading the boring one. especially if it's an ARC.

  7. Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

    Sincerely,

    Yeah, I generally feel miserable giving up on a book. It doesn't happen often, but it has happened. How long does it take you to read the ones you struggle through though?
