Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (10).

Book Blogger Hop

I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger, like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!


Weekly question: When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?

I've learned that sticking it out, and continuing to a read a book I'm not enjoying, doesn't make me like the book any more.  If anything, it just makes the reading experience that much worse.  So if I'm not enjoying it, I'll just move on to the next in the pile.

I do not review books that I do not finish.



  1. Hey Alissa, just hopping on by! I'm the same way, I usually don't force myself to keep reading if I'm really not into a book.

  2. I wish I could give myself permission to do that. But I want to review everything I read, and I don't feel like I can give something an honest review if I haven't finished it.

    Just stopping by from the Hop. Have a great weekend!

  3. Just hoppin' on by to say "Hi!"
    I will stick with it and finish a book even if I don't like it. And if it's part of a series I will finish that too. I feel like I'm going to miss something incredible if I don't. LoL
    Happy reading this weekend!
    New follower too!

  4. Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

  8. Stopping by from the hop. I'm your newest follower. Hope you have a great weekend!


  9. I usually don't like pushing through books I'm disliking because they're supposed to grab me right at the start. However, there are books I've pushed through that I've ended up liking by the end.

  10. When a book sucks from beginning to end it is definitely a painful experience. Sometimes though a book gets better and really surprises you in the end! I have a really hard time putting a book down, but sometimes I really wish I could do it...I'd get through so many more in my TBR pile lol.
