Hopping Away and Follow Friday!

A Very Big Welcome

Welcome to any visitors who got here through the weekly Book Hop (a Book Party) organised by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books or Follow A Book Blog Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View so that book bloggers can share their blog with other book lovers and also find new blogs to 'follow.' To get involved all you have to do is post your blog link at the bottom of the 'linky list' on Crazy For Books and/or Parajunkee's View, answer the weekly question (for the hop) on your blog and get hopping around!

This weeks Book Hop question/topic 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?"

I try to give the book a really good go, probably about a quarter of the way through but if I really haven't got into it or just don't like it then I'll stop reading it. However I think this has only happened to me about twice because generally I enjoy any historical fiction book and contemporaries too. Of course books have their flaws, sometimes major ones but this is natural and I usually finish all my books. Although if I received a book for review and I really didn't connect with/ like it having read half way through then I might stop reading it but try and feature it some other way on this blog so it is fair.

I hope that you enjoy taking a look round my blog and. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to drop me a comment.

Don't forget to leave a link to your blog in a comment so I can check it out, I will try my best to reply :D

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!


  1. Hey Stephanie! Yeah, if I can't get into a book I just stop reading - usually I'll try to pick it up again but if it just isn't grabbing me I usually don't try to force myself to the end.

  2. I always try to finish the books I read, even if I hate them. I don't feel like I can give an honest review if I haven't finished.

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

  3. What are the books you just couldn't get through?

  4. Hi, Stephanie! Thanks for dropping by my blog. Following back. :)

    I give each book a shot through and if still by half-way it doesn't connect with me, I leave it first and get back to it.:)

    Have a nice weekend!
