Special thanks to Jessica at Crazy-for-Books for hosting this week's Book Blogger Hop - my first ever! Check out her blog to learn more about the Blog Hop and how it works.
This week's question:
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?
No, I typically don't stick it out. I will leaf through the remaining part and get a general idea of what happens, but I don't have a lot of extra time on my hands between work, family obligations and other things. So, if the book fails to grab me, then it gets shelved or returned to the library. The day is short, and I want to go to bed with a great read on my mind!
However, if the book seriously ticks me off, then that's a hook! I will read the whole thing just to see how much more ticked off I can get, or to see if the book redeems itself. The other exception is if the book is a part of a series that I've enjoyed. I will stick with a book and the author then. Hey, not every book in a series is going to be an author's best, right?
