After reading last weeks comments on my Blogging Rules post, I think it’s safe to say that most of us choose books that we are pretty sure we will enjoy right?!?! So I have two questions for you:
First) What do you do about the books you're wrong about? No, I am not talking about a 1 or 2 star reviews. We all get those on occasion no matter how careful. What I’m talking about is the dreaded DNF! Yep, those books you just can not finish.
So, how far in a book do you read before you decide you just can’t take any more? Do you still mark it as read on your Goodreads page? And how do you handle it if you are supped to be part of the blog tour for the book?
Second) This is really just out of curiosity on my part: Do you review every NetGalley book you receive?
I go at least fifty pages into a book before I decide if I am going to stop reading it or not. I only mark it as read if I have read the majority of the book. If I happen to be on blog tour for a book that I can not get though, then I contact who is heading up the tour and change my review stop to a promo stop, that way I am still fulfilling my end of the bargain by having the book on the blog.
As far as NetGalley goes, I do my best to review every book that comes from NetGalley. I will admit that if I didn’t like the book I got sometimes I just don’t review it. I have had a DNF from NetGalley before, I have also had one book that I just ran out of review time with.
Happy blogging and reading,
