A few weeks ago I did something that I've only done four times before. I quit reading a book without finishing it. This was another case where I just didn't care what happened anymore. None of the characters were exciting... in fact they were dull and boring! The plot was predictable and I felt like it was a chore to crack the book open and to try to read even a few pages.
I usually have a book or two that are next in line to be read. I picked up the next one and have felt as if I am devouring it! It is very well written, has interesting characters and a twisting plot. I have only about twenty pages left to go.
The next book in line comes recommended by a friend and I'm looking forward to reading it also. But it's kind of in the same era as the last ones I've read recently. I like a change of genre. I think I'll have to find a modern era book before I delve back into historical fiction.
Any good recommendations for what should be on my reading list for this year? Mind you, I like novels but hate biographies and self help or instructional books.
Do any of my avid reader blog buddies do the same thing, give up on a boring book? Or do you trudge through it to the bitter end? If you've kept going, does it get any better at or near the end?
