Blog Hop (October 15-18)

Book Blogger Hop


The book blogger hop is hosted by Jennifer @ crazy-for-books.com. Its where bloggers can discover others' blogs.

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 try to keep reading, but if the book has things I don't like in it I quit right away. I at least always try to give a book a chance of 100 pages, if I'm still not connecting with the book its over. Plus I have so many other books in my to-be-read pile I really don't have time to waste on a book that is not going to get a good review in the first place. I really don't like writing negative reviews so I read books that interest me and that I really want to read. I rarely read books that are below a 3 stars rating. I feel like I'm rambling?! I hope I made sense with all this talking!

Just hopping on by! I'm a similar way, I will often stop reading if it just isn't holding my attention or I'm not connecting with any of the characters.

Hi, hopping by to say hello! I tend to always stick with a book unless I absolutely hate it.

See, for me, negative reviews are helpful, even if they're of books I love. They let me know the reviewer better, and sometimes they point out aspects of reviewing a book that I never thought of!
