Follow Friday - 266 Is a Self Number

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and a single Follow Friday Featured Blogger each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - Corazones Literarios.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: What is your take on DNF books. Do you review them? Choose not to review them?

I simply don't review books I haven't finished. That said, there are very few books that I do not finish. Even more salient: If I agree to review a book, I will finish it, no matter how terrible it is. As evidence of terrible books I have slogged through, I offer as examples Dark Dawning, DragonSpell, The Kicker of St. John's Wood, Seven Wings and the Bleeding Twin Flowers, and the worst book I have ever read, Pureheart. Because I don't review books I have not finished, I read every page of them. As you can see, the resulting review might not be pretty, but that's a risk an author runs when they ask me to review their book, because if I do, I will read it, and I will review it.

  1. still posting review because it affected me in some ways. I want people to know how I felt reading the book because it might help them justify their take on the book (if it was similar to mine). Happy Friday! old follower!

    1. @Kaori King: I almost never DNF a book, so the issue is mostly not one that comes up, but I don't feel comfortable reviewing a book if I didn't finish it, even if it affected me in some way. I think reviewing a book requires an understanding of the whole book to do the job properly.
