Musing Monday's: Struggle

Musing Monday's is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. This week’s musing asks:

What is the last book you struggled to read through to the end, even though you weren’t really enjoying it? What made you keep reading?

Generally speaking, I don't continue on with books that I am bored with or just find unenjoyable for one reason or another.  There are just too many books that I want to read to continue with one I just don't care for. 

That being said, I do remember that I made myself finish Stephenie Meyers' New Moon.  I seriously dislike that book but so many people I know kept telling me to finish it; that it got better and set up the last half of the Twilight Saga.  To this day, I feel my time could have been better spent than reading New Moon.  The couple of chapters in the book that were decent didn't make up for the boredom I felt during the rest of it.  Plus - I just don't love the Twilight Saga like so many others do.

How about you? Do you struggle through a book or move on to the next one?


  1. Hmm, it's been a long time since I read a book that REALLY dragged. I will say I was relieved when I had finished "Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass" - I think by the end of that, I'd just had enough of the complete wackiness. hehe

  2. I have so little time to read anymore! I need to stop wasting time on books that don't catch my interest.

    Here's my answer:

  3. sometimes I would love to just give up on a book...but if it is a review copy I was given I feel an obligation to really, really try and finish it.

  4. I'm pretty sure I'd feel teh same way if I read any of the Twilight books. LOL

    Here's mine:

  5. I always try to finish books :)

    Here is my answer
