Feature and Follow Friday: When the Unthinkable happens...

Oh no... its' happened. You bought this book.... (or borrowed it from the local library or a friend or got an ARC...anyways), you were SO excited about it.... and it so doesnt live up to the expectation.

How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

I'm sad to say that this actually happens to me often.. I mean, I havent ended up disliking a book entirely in a while, but a lot of things I've read lately have kind of fallen flat, and I have to force myself to read the next book. Thankfully, a lot of times, the next book is better so that is OK.
Maybe I'll throw them up in the air and leave them behind. I really need to start being more selective, haha

I hardly ever DNF a book. I've done it maybe once or twice with cheap romances I used to pick up to pass the time, before I had a blog, of course. So the honest answer to that is that I usually power through it, though it usually takes me a lot longer, and then I weigh whether or not I'm interested in the next book. Generally I become invested in the series, like or not, and at least give the next one a shot. I've got a couple of "second" books coming up so we will see how it goes there.

How about you? How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?


P.S. Dont forget (and for you first time visitors), I'm having a giveaway of the first two books in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, and you've got until August 9th to enter! GOOD LUCK! :)
