Feature & Follow 5

Posted August 3rd, 2013 by in meme / 4 comments

Feature & Follow is a weekly post hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. They feature two bloggers each week, ask us all a thought-provoking question, and let us all link up our posts so we can all support each other and find some great new blogs to read.

Q: How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

I give every book I read 50 pages before I decide to DNF or not. This had gotten me through more than one book. However, if after 50 pages I am not connecting with the book, or I just hate it, then I DNF it. I will always give a DNF review, because I feel it is important to explain why I DNF’d it. Because just because a book isn’t for me, doesn’t mean someone else won’t love it. I don’t like having to DNF a book I requested through Netgalley, but I have and I gave the feed back  as to why I didn’t like it. I sometimes feel guily about DNFing a Netgalley request, but I tell myself it just means there is more time for me to read other books instead.

    Usually I will give a book 50-100 pages before I DNF if I’m not enjoying it. I used to power through but I no longer have the time and it turned reading into a chore. There are too many books on my tbr pile for me to feel guilty and I’m picky about what I read, so only have 1 DNF so far!

      I’ve had a few were before I’ve gotten to 50 pages I’ve been thinking, ergh, I’m not enjoying this, but then something about the storyline or one of the characters intrigues me just enough to keep going. Thankfully I haven’t had to DNF too many – my TBR pile is too long to read books I don’t like as well. Thanks for following. 😀

      I know some people don’t think so, but I think it’s important to be able to explain why you couldn’t finish a book, especially for egalleys/ARCs. Thanks for following 😀
