Three years ago, I would religiously finish all the books even if I was not enjoying them because I strongly believe I should give the book a chance and not judge it until I know the ending. But see, I was so wrong. Because until you experienced such a bad book, you would definitely want to not finish it and you know what? Life’s too short to waste your time on books you know you don’t like.
The question is: how far should you go before you decide it’s not for you anymore? Well, to be honest, as soon as you think it’s not to your liking, you can close it.
Wonder what book made me realize that? Surviving High School by Lele Pons. Okay read the first sentence :“I wasn’t always sexy, cool and popular”. Then I tell myself, maybe she made it on purpose to mock herself, but now all the novel is exactly like that.
How awful a book can actually be? It sends HORRIBLE messages to easily influence young people, and I felt it was an insult to authors and readers everywhere. I have never read a book that bad only meant to feed the own author’s ego.
“I am Lele Pons and nothing can keep me down. I am invincible! The invincible invisible girl, that’s me.”
Have you had similar experience where you DNF a book ?
