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!
Why I Picked It Up: I’d heard amazing things about it and honestly the cover was so pretty! haha. It seemed easily like a story I’d get lost in.
Why I Put It Down: Initially I only put it down because I had a book to read for a blog tour so it was honestly supposed to be temporary but then I just never picked it back up. I wasn’t super in love with it and I was around page 100ish. It’s been almost a month and I haven’t been compelled to pick it back up.
Why I Picked It Up: I really quite like issue-y type books. I’m always wanting to find the ones that tackle these issues well so that I can recommend them. I hadn’t read an eating disorder book in a while (not since Wasted by Myra Hornbacher) so I thought this would be a good one.
Why I Put It Down: Bored, bored, bored. Also, the MC was really irritating. That’s not always a dealbreaker for me but in this case I just didn’t care about her at all and was bored.
So let me know if you’ve read either of these and let me know if I should absolutely pick it back up or if you think I’m ok by just letting it remain in the DNF pile!
