To DNF or to Finish???

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!




One thought on “To DNF or to Finish???

  1. Depends on how badly I wanted to read it. Sometimes it’s just the wrong time for a book. I’ve DNF some books and then later picked them up and breezed through them. It’s just timing in a lot of instances.
