In my attempt to remedy my struggle to put down books I’m not really into at all, I started Reconsider or Release to help me learn to put down books or decide it was a case of bad timing. I sporadically lay out my DNF books on the metaphorical table for my readers and let you help me decide if I should just MOVE ON and release the books or maybe reconsider them. So, vote either reconsider or release and maybe provide some compelling reasons for why I should reconsider or release OR at least just tell me what your general thoughts on the book were that might help me in my decision?
Stork by Wendy Delsol
Why I Picked It Up: NORSE LORE! It just sounded so magical and unique.
Why I Put It Down: I was listening to this on audio and I was just NOT clicking it all. I was actually almost done, I believe, with it but I just COULD NOT care at all about the characters or the story. It didn’t feel as interesting to me as I had hoped. Also, the audiobook made me find the MC annoying. I’m wondering if this just wasn’t a good fit for audio for me.
I Am (Not) The Walrus by Ed Briant
Why I Picked It Up: The cover. The thought of a music related book. AND UM Beatles reference! The promise of a male protag. I don’t read many of those.
Why I Put It Down: I just was NOT clicking with it at all. I think this may be a case of the wrong time for this book…maybe just wasn’t in the mood.
Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
Why I Picked It Up: I loved Pride & Prejudice and I’m trying to read the classics again like I used to.
Why I Put It Down: Bored to TEARS. I would sit t here and feeling like I was reading forever and then I’d look and it was only like 15 pages. It might be my current stress level with the wedding only a month away but I just am not into this one. I’d like to ideally pick this one up again but I need to hear a resounding “YES! It gets better!”
So give me your opinion, friends! Reconsider or release?
