Follow My Book Blog Friday (97)


This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

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

Answer: I have this really weird need to finish every book I read. Even if I don't really like it, I'll stick it out and at least skim the rest. I feel like since I already invested some time into the book, I have to finish it. If not, it'll sit on my shelf taunting me and I don't even know where to put it! To I put that book in the part of my bookshelf where my finished books are? Or do I put it with the books I have read? I don't know! It's just too stressful to start and book and NOT finish it. So I finish almost everything I read :)

  1. I have to finish the book too. I just can't leave it unfinished. It will haunt me. :)

  2. Nice! I use to be like that, but with the growing TBR pile, I've come to a decision that I can't finish everything if I am not enjoying it. There have been a very rare few books that I just couldn't handle after so many pages. Generally before the halfway mark. I have too much else to read and a lot of what I want to read to try to finish one I'm not enjoying.

  3. I try really hard to finish a book too but if I absolutely cannot get into it after half way through I may DNF. :-)

  7. I used to think like that, but there's just so many other things that I could be reading. I don't want to spend so much time on something that I don't like to miss out on something I might LOVE!

  8. 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!
