Friday Hop

Its that day again!  Today'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?"


The answer to this used to be yes I stuck it out...but now, it's getting harder and harder for me to do.  I will usually give a book about 100-150 pages to change my mind or grab me if it still isn't cutting it I'll reluctantly stop reading it.  So far I've only experienced this with one book that just really really sucked in my opinion.  Usually even if I don't particularly like it, if it has some redeeming quality I will continue to read it but I think I'm getting over this feeling of needing to finish the book despite feeling like I'm being tortured by reading it.

  1. I feel the same way. It is hard though, isn't it? I would feel defeated by a book if I couldn't finish it.... but I'm getting better about that and remembering - Life it too short and there are too many good books out there!

    Happy Friday!

  2. I try to read at least 100 pages before calling it quits. Thankfully, I am really picky about what I read and usually don't have to stop reading a book.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. @Sarah I totally agree I hate feeling like a book got the best of me but sometimes they just suck and you have to move on to better things.
