Book Blogger Hop

"When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"

My answer: It depends. If I have a book that I really really want to read, and the book I'm reading is boring me, then I will stop, if I still have a substantial amount of the book left. If the book still hasn't kept me interested after 100 pages, then I will definitely put it down. Sometimes, I feel bad about not finishing the book, so I say I'll read it again at a later date, but I never do. If it's in the middle of a series, I will finish it, and then read the next one, and if that one is still rubbish, I will give up with a series, though I'm much more reluctant to give up with a series than just one book.

  3. Hopping by to visit and follow! I hear you on series--breaking up with a series is much harder than just stopping a single book that's not enjoyable. I usually stick with series for at least a book after they've gone south. :-)

  8. Just stopping by from the Hop! I prefer to finish books, but I have no regrets about stopping in the middle of a series. I've abandoned plenty of them.

  9. Hopping by to say hi :)

    If I find that I'm really not getting into a book, I'll push myself to finish unless it's truly terrible!! If it's ridiculous or boring me to tears, then I might as well quit. I figure that if I get to the point where I'm ready to throw in the towel - there's no sense in trying to review it since it'll be unfavorable anyway (ya know?)

    I've only ever not finished one book.

    Have a great weekend!

  11. New follower here :)

    I will do the same thing, put a book down, read something else and then come back to it. Or sometimes if a book comes out that I don't want spoiled (like back when Harry Potter was still coming out) I'll stop everything to read it so no one can ruin it :)

  12. Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

    Sincerely,

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel
Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
