This week's question is: How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?
First I would like to say that I am extremely picky on the books that I read to begin with. I check out the blurbs, and I look at the reviews that are up for it. I also read a lot of books that I see reviews for on fellow blogger's sites that I know I share a similar liking with. If it's an author's request sent by email I even look closely at how the email is worded and whether I like the way that is written. That is why you won't see a lot of low rated books on my blog.
If I start reading a book, and I don't like it though, it really depends on how deep the dislike goes. If it is offensive or hurts my emotional well-being in some way then I will go ahead and stop. I really don't like reading books that make me too sad on purpose so if it just turns me into an emotional wreck, I usually won't like it. If I know that I won't even give a star, I may go ahead and stop reading early so as not to waste my time. If, however, I'm at about a 2 star feeling with a book, I will keep going because the ending really could get it over that 3 star point. I've only DNF'd about 5 books total out of all that I've read. What about you??
