The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. IT was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This week’s prompt is:
Do you finish reading every book that you have slotted for a review? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I would answer that with a resounding YES! If I have been given an ARC, especially those through NetGalley, I do try to finish them for review. There were a few when I first started with them that I ended up not reading, only because I ran out of time and they were archived before I was able to get to them. But I have a better handle on how to schedule my ARC’s and so it is rare for me to not read one to the end. I feel that if I request an ARC, I owe the author and publisher a review, even if it isn’t necessarily a glowing one.
Other books that I either own or borrow from the library, do not necessarily get reviewed, and there have been a few that I have not finished or ended up not reading for various reasons. I am not by nature someone who dnf’s a book, but there have been a few here and there. (There have also been a few that I wished I had dnf! But I guess I’m too stubborn sometimes.)
That is all I have to say about this week’s topic. Next week’s is an interesting one, which I think I will have lots to say about.
