Book Breakups (2)

Book Breakups is hosted and inspired by Lori at Pure Imagination.

Did you ever start reading a book and just couldn't get through it? I know we should give every book a chance, but if I'm still not into it after 100 pages, I sometimes make the decision to call a quits. This doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad book. It's just not the one for me.

Why I Called A Quits:I can see why it would appeal to some people, and maybe I pulled out a little too early, but this just wasn't the book for me. I tried. I gave it 150 pages, but when reading feels more like work than leisure, it's time to call a quits. I did enjoy the concept behind "siders" and the fallen, but it just wasn't enough for me. Don't get me wrong. Like I said, I can see the appeal, and I'm sure loads of people will enjoy it, but this just isn't my cup of tea.

People Who Enjoyed A Touch Mortal:
*Amy From My Overstuffed Bookshelf
*Victoria Schwab, author of The Near Witch
*Angela from Reading Angel 002

Why I Called A Quits:First off, I just want to let you guys know that I am definitely in the minority when it comes to this book. It seems like everyone really enjoyed it, but I just could not get into it. Maybe it was my mind set. Maybe I was expecting something else. Who knows, but after 70 or so pages, I decided to put it back on the shelf and start something else. With all the raving reviews, I'll probably try picking it up again someday, but for now, it's time to move on.

People Who Enjoyed The Demon Trapper's Daughter:
*Sara from The Hiding Spot
*Savannah from Books With Bite
*Elie from Ellz Readz

That's it for this edition of Book Breakups. Please don't let my experience ruin yours. You may love these books. Keep in mind that this is just one person's experience, and like I said, I may give these books another go. For now, it's time to move on to another book, being the book hoe that I am.

  1. So sad you didn't like them! They sound really good. But there aren't enough hours in the day to read books you don't like. Hope your next reads will be better!

  2. Ah I really wanted a mortal touch. Now I will most likely pass on it.

  3. A Touch Mortal was hard to get past the first half of the book. I seriously thought about putting it down! But then after the first half, OMG! It was like BAM! If you ever get the chance, try again!

  4. I used to never be able to give up on a book or series once I started but with so many books to read and almost 6 months in a reading slump I just can't afford to stick with something I'm not enjoying.
    You book hoe! lol


I love, love, love comments, and therefore, love you! Thanks for dropping by!
