Feature & Follow Friday #11

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Q: How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

If there's a book I really don't enjoy then I usually DNF. I'm not proud of it, so I try to finish every book that I read, but with some books, I really got a feeling that it's mission impossible. 
I remember that I had really hard time with House of Night series, and I've read first book just for a joke and I challenged myself to see how many books in the series I can read :D I couldn't handle it anymore on book 5. I'm sorry if there's any fan of House of Night series reading this, but I just don't like it at all.

Hope you all have a magical weekend and I'll talk to you soon :) By the way, leave me a comment with you links, so I can check your blogs out and make some new friends!

  1. Ohhh I remember that series too! I read the first one and that one was kind of a struggle to get through!! Ended up finishing that one though but decided one was enough! I loaned my copy to a friend a few years ago, haven't gotten it back and don't really care too! Along with another she borrowed!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. Ouch sorry about that. I'm not at all interested in reading that series either so don't feel bad for not liking it.



  3. I always continue through on books because I don't like missing out on things. I'm a bloglovin follower.

  4. Haha, I had the first House of Night book but thought it looked dumb, so I gave it away. Glad I'm not missing out on much. ;)

  5. 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! I have the same problem with House of Night, I'm at book 6 and it seems to be dragging to much for me to remain interested.

  6. I sometimes feel guilty about DNFing books, but then I remember all the possibly great books that are waiting to be read. Old follower.

    Happy Friday!

  7. I have a 33% mark rule. It used to be 25, but I upped it ;-) If I still can't get into it it will usually turn into a DNF. But that's rare

  10. I hate to DNF. It makes me feel guilty, but sometimes there's just no other option.

  11. Whether the sasquatch is a real animal replica handbags or only a product of hoaxes and imagination, its effect on human beings is the same. Simply put hermes outlet, it's a lot of fun to think that this creature exists. If somebody does finally prove the existence of sasquatches, the legend surrounding them will die out, replaced by scientific analysis. But fendi outlet if the creatures remain a mystery, there will always be believers -- it is nearly impossible to disprove something to everybody's satisfaction, and many people aren't interested in this sort of debunking evidence rolex submariner replica anyway. In the end, people will believe in sasquatches simply because it is exciting to do so.
