Feature and Follow 12

Alison Can Read Feature & FollowI once again remembered to join in on Feature and Follow Friday this week! It's definitely been a while. Anyway, onto the question!

How do you handle a book you don't like? Do you DNF or do you power through?
I know this probably isn't good, but I always power through. I always feel as if maybe there might be something better later on in the book that I might miss out on, truthfully.


I prefer GFC follows, though if you can't follow through GFC I also have Bloglovin', Linky, and E-Mail. Thanks so much! Remember that if you follow me, you should leave a comment so that I know to follow you back! :)

  1. There's nothing wrong with that for me. I'm always hopeful that the book is going to grab me if I just read it a little more. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  2. I usually do too though not always. Sometimes if something isn't really doing it for me and I have something in the wings I really wanna read, it's easier to set it aside! I may go back later and find I like it after sticking it out.

  3. I tend to do that about 99% of the time. There have been a very rare, rare few books that I just could not finish so they were marked as DNF. There have been a few books where I powered through, and a few of those involved skimming, and as it turned out they were ones that I did not care for and were donated or given away.

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  4. I do put books down if I'm really not enjoying them... But only if it gets way too tedious to read on! I always give books a fair go!

    Thanks for stopping by My FF post! I'm already a follower via GFC! ^.^

  5. If I am over half way, I can usually push through. If I am not... Ahhh! I wish I could

  6. Thanks for following my blog and I'm following you via GFC. I agree with you and always hope that a book gets better if it doesn't hook me from the beginning.

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog. I wish I could power through all the books.. but it is just unrealistic for me, if i don't like the characters I won't continue.

  11. Usually I will give a book 50-100 pages before I DNF if I'm not enjoying it. I used to power through but I no longer have the time and it turned reading into a chore. There are too many books on my tbr pile for me to feel guilty and I'm picky about what I read, so only have 1 DNF so far!

  12. I agree with you! Once I read a 600 page book that only got slightly interesting after 300 pages, so if I had dropped I would have missed out!
    I was already following you on Bloglovin' but I also followed on GFC! :)

  13. I have been known to power through also. But lately with so many review books to read and time constraints I'm going to have to learn to DNF some books. Granted, they'll have to be really horrible for me to DNF. Otherwise, I'll keep reading.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF!

    1. I may have to start DNFing books too.

  14. If a pub sends me a book I power through. But if it's something I picked up I might DNF. I've got such a list of reviews and my own TBR list I hate to waste time :( Happy Friday! New GFC follower.

  16. I used to power through and I applaud your ability to do that. I do sometimes wonder if I am missing something when I DNF books...I guess there's no wrong or right answer with it...whatever works for each blogger. Old follower.

    Happy Friday!

  17. I can't power through all the time. Sometimes I can depending on what I'm not liking.

  18. Like I said on my blog, I totally understand that. I've done that with a lot of books, and sometimes I've been pleasantly surprised!

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I'm returning the follow via Bloglovin'. :)

  19. I try to power through as well! Especially if it's a review copy. Sometimes though, there's too little time, too many books and I just can't!

  20. I usually try and power through too, but if I'm really not enjoying the book I'll really skim it to get through it as fast as possible.

  21. I think it's commendable to always power through! I'm not always able to do it, but I respect readers that make it to the end no matter what :D Old Bloglovin follower and New GFC Follower Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  26. I feel like I might miss something, too. There is a book I'm trying to get through right now that I haven't picked up in over a month, but I'm 3/4 of the way through. I wish I could DNF sometimes because of my TBR that's out of control, but luckily, I haven't had this problem until now. Thanks for stopping by my My FF @ Donnie Darko Girl.
