Each weekend, Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop. It is a great way for book lovers and book bloggers to find new book blogs and get to know each other. Each week there is a new, fun question to answer. I hope you will take some time to hop over and check out some of the other great blogs participating!
Today is a special Book Blogger Hop for me because it is my daughter's second birthday!!
This week's book blogging question is: When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or do you move on to your next title?
I think this is a very interesting question since many of us receive books for review and feel that we have to finish something because we committed to reviewing it. A long time ago, I would have just kept reading. I remember buying a book that I had looked at many times when in bookstores. I was drawn to it so many times that I finally decided to get it. Well, it turned out to be so boring! I don't mind long books but long, boring books are not for me. I had spent money on it though so I finished it even though I was not enjoying it at all. I think after that was when I finally gave myself permission to give up on a book. There are way too many other things to read! At this point, I've had some review books that I didn't care for but none that I truly couldn't finish. I will give a review book more of a chance than a library book or even one off of our own shelves that my husband says I need to read. I don't think I would be able to do a review on a book that I couldn't read completely though even if I stated that I did not finish the book.
If you have hopped over from the Mr. Linky, Welcome! I hope you will stay a bit and look around. I review a wide range of books including (but not limited to!) urban fantasy, young adult, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, chic lit, cozy mystery, and some non-fiction. I love getting comments so please let me know you stopped by!
