Hey lovely people!! Let’s have a little chat. Grab your beverage of choice, find a comfy seat, and let’s chat.
So I am currently reading Love’s Reckoning by Laura Frantz. It’s a historical fiction book. I’m not always a fan of historical books, but my mom bought me these and they looked interesting to read.
Problem is, I really can’t get into them.
I’ve only read a few chapters, but they just don’t appeal to me at all. The plot is messy and boring, and I keep making myself busy so I have an excuse not to sit down and even attempt reading more of the book.
So here’s my question for you all.
When you can’t get into a book, do you stop reading it?
I, personally, don’t like to. Even if it’s bad, I will usually keep reading it. Only on a few occasions do I remember stopping a book.
I stopped reading Atlantia by Ally Condie early on because the plot was horrible. I was so confused, and the story kept throwing new curveballs at me before I could settle down from the last one. The sister goes above land? Something about a siren? Whattttt??
I stopped reading Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard early on because of the language. I try to avoid reading books with language in them. It takes a special book for me to read through the profanity used.
I stopped reading Aquifer by Jonathan Friesen early on because it was boring and a total rip-off of The Giver. I was sad, though, because I was very excited to read this book. But I had also previously saw the reviews were bad for the book, so I knew what to expect.
So what do you think? Stop a book early or no?
