Follow Friday



Feature and Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. This weeks question is:

If you could "unread" a book, which ones would it be?  Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

When I think of "unreading" a book, I think of a book that I wasn't enjoying...and getting that time back.  If I were going to start over and experience a book again, I'd just re-read it (which I have done before).  I hate to say it but for me that  "unread" book would be Libba Bray's Beauty Queens.  I was totally looking forward to this read and I couldn't even finish the first 50 pages without getting distracted by something else.  What makes me sad is that I'll never get that time back...sigh....wish I felt differently about it but it just wasn't meant to be.

  1. There are just some of those books out there. I have a hard time DNFing a book, but I did four in June alone. I've decided that my time is much more precious than finishing a book I don't like.

  2. Haven't heard of those, but I agree. Time is precious and it's hard when it's spent on books we didn't enjoy! Old follower!

  8. Curlypow, it's not often that we disagree on a book - but I loved Beauty Queens! It made me laugh, and the characters were a little ridiculous/over-the-top, but I felt that it went with Libba Bray's sense of humour and the pageant theme.

    1. Actually we still don't disagree on a book. I know it say's this was my post, but actually it was Christinabean who read this one. May'be I'll give it a try just to see who I agree with :)

    2. It was over the top and I thought it was witty for the first 20 pages or so but then I felt like it became old material and I just lost interest. I will give it tons of cover love though. Clever photo!!!
