I have a real issue with not finishing books. If I make that decision to actually stop reading and put it down that choice stays with me forever. It feels like a little mini failure that plagues me! One time, however, a fellow book blogger (and I honestly can’t remember who it was) said that she doesn’t worry about not finishing books. She said that there are too many books she wants to read that she isn’t going to waste time with books she isn’t enjoying.
This really resonated with me, but alas sometimes I just can’t give up on a book. Sometimes it turns out to be a surprise and I actually end up enjoying the book, but other times I’m let down. So, today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Books I Almost Put Down but Didn’t”. It’s going to be a mix of those I am glad I finished and those I regret finishing.
Those I Should’ve Put Down, But Didn’t
These are the books I kept pushing through thinking “Surely, I’m going to end up liking this.” Nope.
Those I’m Glad I Kept Reading
These were books I wasn’t necessarily in love with when I began them, but in the end, am glad I stuck around to finish them because some of them have become books I love!
