So today i’m starting off a new thread that i hope to start which is my opinion on :(certain subject) , some will be book related and others wont be , as i hope to share more of my personality and other interests with you guys. Hopefully you like it!
Today i’m talking about is it ok to stop reading a book and what books i did not finish (DNF).
I think it is 100% ok to stop reading a book no matter how far in you are or are not. I usually read the first few chapters at least but everybody is different and i accept that. Some books i have stopped reading halfway through as i may not be enjoying it and feel i’m wasting my time when i could read another book on my ever growing TBR pile that i will love.
I previously included these in my Goodreads total although i stopped when i started blogging as my total became something i wanted to be accurate for completed books. Although i do want to start a DNF shelf now as i think it is possible.
Some Books I have DNFed are :Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow: I enjoyed her writing style as it was very realistic, however this was also why i did not finish it. The self harm scenes were very realistic and emotional to read and at the time i was suffering with all the things in the book so i found it too hard which i why i stopped about 100 pages in. I don’t think it was her style of writing it was more the mindset i was in at the time. And now i am recovered and only suffer with anxiety i read more explicit MH books and am fine so i have bought her newest release to try.
The Gift by Cecilia Ahern: I just didn’t jel with her writing style at all so although i liked the sound of the book when i started reading it i just wasn’t liking the flow and the characters meaning i DNFed it quite quickly.
Orangeboy by Patrice Lawrence : This is probably an unpopular decision but everybody’s taste is different and i usually struggle with motivation to read long books (400+) so this was one factor. I also didn’t enjoy her writing style and felt it was quite slow paced.
