This Week's Prompt:

What is your take on DNF books. Do you review them? Choose not to review them?


This one is a tough one because I hate to DNF a book to start with. I try really hard to give each book a chance trying to read at least 30% of the novel in question. I don't have a lot of DNF novels in general because I always try to find something I like about the book. Most of the time I just put them down and move because I would hate to dissuade someone who might actually enjoy the book, of course, there is the exception to the rules. Sometimes I do share a snippet of my thoughts if I feel like it's worth reading. 

This week was a little tough what is your most interesting bookish memory or experience?.


  1. I'm not one for DNF-ing if I can help it but if I do I post a review regardless, just my personal policy, but I understand it's somewhat of a hot topic so everyone has their own thoughts on the matter. :)

    I remember writing about an interesting bookish experience for a past FF but one woul dhave to be getting to rearrange my high school's library because the librarian was new and clueless about what people were reading.

    Have a good weekend and happy reading!

  2. Yeah DNFing is rare for me too. I usually give it 50 pages or so and if I'm not hooked in some way, I just stop because life is short and there are a ton of books I know I want to read. The DNF usually comes about with a book I felt hesitant about anyway, but decided to take the plunge. But in a calendar year I probably DNF less than 5 if even 4!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  3. I am one of those completionists. Like Austine, I wince at the thought of DNFing. I've only DNFed 4 books since I started blogging, and one of those was a classic I tried again and just couldn't. My policy is I have to get 40% into the book. 99% of the time, I keep reading to the end. But either way, I review the book. The thing is, I feel like people think a DNF review is not reviewed in the same was as their 5 star reviews. If that is the case, I don't think that is fair. My reviews are always the same: honest and fair, and I include elements I liked and things that were done really well, and the things I didn't like and why.

  4. I usually don't review books I've DNF since I've always felt that it wouldn't be fair to review a book that you haven't finished.

  5. I DNF books very rarely. I don't often review them unless I'm obligated to than I try to share it in private with the person I have the agreement with. Following on Instagram
