First Time Blog Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy-for-Books!

This weeks question is:

"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?"

Very good question...and I am providing a very good answer... :-)

I used to torture myself by finishing EVERY last book I laid my hands on.  I just can't do it anymore! 

I'm mainly a library reader, and I request about 15 books at a time.  If I can't get into a book, it just goes back...that's the way it is!!

I will usually read up to about page 50, then randomly skip ahead to pages to see if anything interesing is going on (yes sometimes the lovin' scenes) and if the book STILL has no enjoyable plot...on to the next one!


  1. Book skimmer!! What blasphemy!! JK I still can't believe you finished Fairyville HAHA. I do 50 pages as well and then usually end up tossing the book across the room. *cough cough* Witchling!

    Love you long time! <3

  2. New follower here!

    So... what's a book you haven't finished?

    I do the 100 page thing then put them down for a long time, then give them one more chance XD

  4. I uh...I skim (what shame) and try to give it a shot at finishing. There was only a few I simply couldn't I skipped to the ending to find out if it was worth giving a final try.

  5. I did a guest post on my BFF's blog Fairyville is the most recent book I can think of that I skimmed (shame, shame) and just couldn't even finish!!!
