Hop and Follow Friday!



Book Blogger Hop

Blog hop friday is hosted over at Crazy For Books

This weeks question:
"When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"


My Answer:
If I've been struggling with the book and I'm about 150 pages into it, or have been trying to read it for a week or two (books should never take that long to read), then I give up. If it is by an author I normally tend to love, I will eventually get back to reading it when I'm in the mood for it. If it's a book that everyone has told me is horrible, most of the time I will give up on it for good. Life is too short for bad books.

This weeks question:
What is your reading suggestion this week?

My Answer:
I'm reading The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan and loving it. So that. OR any of the books that I posted in my top 10 favorites of this year. That post is the one right before this one.

If you decide to follow me, make sure to leave a comment saying you are following me and a url/link back to your blog so I can follow back!

  5. Just hoppin’ on by <3

    I usually stick books out, even if it annoys me like crazy. I like giving fair chances to books, and I feel incomplete if I don’t finish it. I’ve even stuck it through an entire series I absolutely hated. Maybe it’s just me being weird.

  6. Just hoppin' on by to say "Hi!"
    I will stick with it and finish a book even if I don't like it. And if it's in a series then that too. I'm afraid I'll miss a great ending or something, LoL
    Happy reading this weekend!

  7. Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

    Sincerely,

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
