Musing Mondays


This week’s musing asks…

What is the last book you struggled to read through to the end, even though you weren’t really enjoying it? What made you keep reading?


I would have to say Cleansing by Fire by Y.S. Hassan. It was a book I was reviewing, so I had to finish reading it to have a good sense of the plot developments, but it was not one I enjoyed too much. If you're interested, my review is here.

Honestly, part of the reason I won't review books is because I'm afraid I just won't be able to finish them. I have such a hard time reading something I haven't chosen myself.

From the name & cover it looks like it would be a struggle! I know you're not suppose to judge books by that, but I do and it always works out for me haha!

That is one of the reasons I don't very often accept books that I have to review. I have so many good books waiting to be read, that I choose myself, that I don't want to be tied down to reading a boring one that I will need to review.

I'm very fussy when it comes to accepting review books. Almost always I only accept books I think I will enjoy. So far, I've been pretty successful.

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog!

I wish I'd get books to review! Given where I live, that's not likely to happen any time soon. But when I think of how I'd be compelled to read something I don't want to, I feel kind of relived that I don't get books to review.
