Do You Finish The Book?
A friend of mine passed on to me a book she had recently finished. She raved about it. One of the greatest books she'd ever read, she insisted. Since it was my genre of choice (contemporary romance), a HEA ending, and an author I'd read often, I couldn't wait to sit down with this latest release.
By the third chapter, I asked myself "why am I reading this book?" By the fourth chapter, I was frustrated and by the fifth, I was ready to put it down. Nevertheless, out of loyalty to an author I admire (and because some day some reader may be evoking the same sentiments about a book I authored), I manged to finish the book, but was terribly disappointed.
Which brings me to a question, I would enjoy hearing your thoughts on...when you're midway through a book and decide it's not working for you, do you finish reading it?
Have a great week, Everyone!
