Over the last couple of months I’ve been reading so much more than I have for a long time. I have been quite fortunate in that I have enjoyed nearly all of the books I have read. HOWEVER I have started to come across a few that I just don’t seem to be getting along with. In the past I would just push through, hoping that they would get better, or that the plot would have a hook that intrigued me.
Nowadays though, I have so many books that I want to read that I am starting to not want to have to try to read a book.
I recently saw some people on youtube talking about doing a first chapter challenge type thing. Basically you read the first chapter of a book, if you don’t like it then you get rid… maybe a little harsh, but I started reading a book that I had heard good things about, and just didn’t like the writing style, got to the end of the first chapter and thought, “why should I keep going if I really don’t like it now?”. I had got it out of the library because it sounded so good, so I put it on one side.
Would you return it unread? Try again? Put it back on your TBR/Wishlist?
Do you give up on books? How do you decide??
Let me know in the comments…
until next time!
