Blog Hop...(14)

Blog Hop is a meme that is hosted by Crazy For Books each Friday until Monday.

Book Blogger Hop

This is my fourteenth hop and I am still finding great blogs out there!! Blog on =)

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?

Answer: So far I haven't had much books like that for me and when I have done, they haven't been books I have been sent for review or ones I have bought personally. It's normally ones I have borrowed from the library. For the ones that I have come across that I couldn't get into, I normally stop reading if I can't get into it after the first few chapters.
Having said that, if I was sent a book for review and couldn't get into it, I would probably stick it out for longer to ensure that I definitely am not enjoying it because of the story itself and not the starting chapters. I would definitely try and stick it out so I could give a review at the end whether negative or positive, but if I truly couldn't get into it at least half way thru then I would probably give up.

I would give books for review more of a chance to win me over than I would if I borrowed a book from the library because the way I see it, the authors/publishers have been kind enough to send me a book for free to review, the least I can do is take the time to at least give the book a chance before adding it to my not-finished-reading pile.

Have a great weekend =)
