Blog Hop!

Friday's Book Blog Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.
This week's question:
When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"

This question is so interesting because it varies from person to person. Even for me, my answer changes based on lots of things. First of all, if I have a lot of books checked out from the library and something is due that I can't get into, then I take it back. In the back of my mind I always intend to return to it at some point in the future- like when I have free time. I am not sure that will ever really happen, but I hate giving up on a book. I have become a more frequent book abandoner lately - mostly due to the large number of books on my TBR pile. It is becoming painfully obvious that I never really will read every book I want to, so if a book is hard to get into, I am more inclined to move on to the next one in my stack.
I am hoping to find lots of time to hop around to other blogs later this weekend. Happy Hopping to everyone.

Stopping in from the hop to say hi! I am more likely to abandon library books if they're due back and I'm having a bit of a time getting into them. I did this recently with a couple of books that I really want to read but just couldn't get into the stories. I plan to check them back out again in a little while and try again. Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Follow Friday!!! Hope you will stop by my blog too! My publisher and I are looking for a group of bloggers for a huge blog tour next year before the release of book two in my 'A Sense of Truth' series! We will be giving out a few more copies of The Thirteenth Chime (we can only give out so many, being open to e-books gives an upper hand) and are still open to all interviews and guest posts. We want to fill up the Amazon page with reviews and try to reach as many people as we can!!! Hope you might consider being a part of the team! Thank you either way!

I usually put books down for months or years at a time... sometimes not because I don't like them, just because I'm not ready to read the rest of it.
