Feature & Follow Friday Blog Hop #22


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by Alison Can Read & Parajunkee.

This week's topic is:

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


Usually if I don't like a book, I don't finish. I will try to power through in the beginning in hopes it will get better but if I get to the half way point and I am struggling to finish, I will DNF. I have way too many unread books and books on my TBR to waste time with a book I can barely stand to read.

  2. I always admire people who can DNF. I just don't know how to do it. I just keep going until the end assuming that it HAS to get better at one point. Fail. ><

  3. I DNF if I'm not feeling the book. Life is too short for bad books.

  4. I agree, if I can push through, they usually grown on me. It isn't very often that I give up but I will if I need to :-)

  5. I agree, Life is too short and my TBR is too long :-)

  6. I have so, so many books on my TBR and Kindle that I feel like if I can't get through this book, I should move on to one that appeals more to me. I really try to give it a chance so I don't DNF very often but I will if I have to :-) I admire people who keep going to the bitter end

  7. I always continue through on books just because I don't like not knowing how it ends. I'm a bloglovin follower.

    I agree! Life's too short and I've got too many books I want to read to continue powering through a book I'm hating!

  16. I can DNF if I'm just not feeling it. Sometimes I'll go back and try again later but I just have too many books to read to finish one I can't get into. Thanks for stopping by!
