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!






I stumbled across another challenge/readathon whilst I was catching up on my BookTube (YouTube) videos. I absolutely love Naya from Naya Reads and Smiles, her enthusiasm is boundless, and she has great taste in books!

So the emojiathon is being hosted by NayaDylan, and Sarah.

The idea is to read a book based on a commonly used emoji/emoticons…. the full list can be found HERE

There are 15 in total, and the target is to read 4, so it should be relatively easy. The emojiathon runs throughout February, and all the info can be found on twitter @emojiathon and use #emojiathon to join in!

I’m currently assembling my TBRs for this so I will post an update when I’ve done it 🙂

Update February 1st…
