I needed a post that was more bookish related so here it is!
I know a lot of people DNF (Did Not Finish) books, but I’m not one of those people. I can never find it in myself to just not finish a book. I can start a book and get a decent amount into the book and not like it but I’ll always finish it. Sometimes it takes weeks or maybe even months to finish a book, but I’ll finish it eventually.
Sometimes if I’m reading a book I don’t like I’ll pick up another book that is good to get me back in the reading mood because sometimes reading a bad book can be so exhausting and draining. Also, what I find helps me is that I like to write reviews on books that I don’t enjoy. The reason I like that is because I feel like I always, or more often than not, write reviews on books that I really enjoy or that at least got three stars. Sometimes when I read a bad book I have more to say about it because it’s easier for me to remember the things I don’t like about a book…maybe that’s just me…or maybe that’s because I’m a pessimist.
I guess I should talk about the other side of DNFing a book. I don’t want it to seem like not finishing a book is horrible. I definitely admire those who can just stop reading a book they don’t enjoy without knowing how it ends. I’m too curious that even if I don’t like a book I always have to know how it ends or at least give the book the benefit of the doubt that it’ll maybe have a good ending that makes the book a four-star rating. I know a lot of readers can DNF a book without a problem because they don’t want to waste their time and that definitely makes sense. I’ve had times where I’ve come very close to DNFing a book, but then I’ll usually force myself to read a certain amount of pages a day until I finish it. May not be the best idea but it works for me haha.
Comment below some of your reasons as to why you DNF a book because I would really like to know! 🙂 Maybe I’ll start DNFing books I don’t like…it’s pretty unlikely but it’s a possibility I guess haha. I want to DNF books I don’t like just because I know it’ll save me from reading slumps bad books can cause and because it’ll help me with my goal of reading quality books, but I think my curiosity is just too strong haha.
I hope y’all enjoyed and feel free to comment your thoughts!! ❤ ❤
