Feature and Follow #3

This weeks question:

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

That is a very good question. Sometimes if the plot is good and characters are bad I can power through by skipping and skimming, but if the plot is horrible I put it in the pile of DNF's. And sometimes I just can not get into the book, not sure why sometimes books with good ratings, but if is due for a review I just start skimming.


  1. I don't review a lot of ARCs or books for tours so I wonder if bloggers who do a lot of those skim the books a lot. I would probably end up doing that!

  2. If it's a book for a tour and I'm not suppose to write a negative review, then I don't feel guilty not finishing the book.

    But otherwise, the guilt does eat at least until I read an AWESOMELY AMAZING book.

  3. I've gotten a lot better about not accepting/requesting/reading books that I don't think I'll like. As it is, DNFing makes me feel so guilty that sometimes I end up reading entire series that I find mediocre or don't like that much, because I feel like I have to start what I finish. I'm getting better at DNFing though! :) Following you on Bloglovin and NB.

  4. I'm the opposite - good characters and a bad plot, I can deal with usually. But it's rare that a book with a bad plot would have anything good about it, so.

  5. I always power through. I'm a Bloglovin follower! :)

  6. 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!
