Do you “give up” on books??
I was never the kind of person that could leave a book unfinished but I feel, as I get older, why waste my time on something that brings me no joy?!
I’ve given up on The Man In The High Castle! It was incredibly boring! I decided to read the book because my Boyfriend started watching the TV show and said it was incredible. Naturally, as an avid reader, I assumed that the book would be better. Unfortunately for me I was very wrong. It was not to my taste at all. Different narratives were taking place within the same chapters and I was incredibly bored… not a happy happy! However, when I reached the 50% mark I made the decision to close the e-book and leave it closed. I couldn’t force myself to read a book that was not bringing me any satisfaction .
