Musing Mondays [3]


MUSING MONDAYS is a weekly event where MizB of Should Be Reading will ask a book/reading-related question, and you can answer with your own thoughts on the topic.

This week's musing asks: What was the last book you could not finish and why?

My answer:

First of all, I have to say I'm not the kind of reader that give up on a book, like EVER. Even when I'm bored as hell reading a book and I'm not liking it at all, I just keep reading until my eyes bleed. I think it's important to read everything so you can make a good critique based on the entire book and not just the first 50 pages that you didn't like. I know there are a lot of great books out there that could be ten times better than the one you're fighting to finish, but I just don't like unfinished business. 
All that said, there is one book, that I haven't been able to finish YET. I don't think this is a bad book, I don't even feel bored while I'm reading it... It could be it's length  (1200 pages) or just that I always pick it up when I'm kind of in a bad mood. The book I'm talking about is The Witching Hour (Lives of Mayfair Witches #1) by Anne Rice. Like I was saying, I don't think it's the book's fault. I just can't keep my attention in something for that long... This one is always going back and forth from by currently-reading shelf to my to-be-read one on Goodreads. 
I still have every intention of reading this entire thing, I just have to find the right timing for it.






I would love to hear your thoughts, leave me a link with your Musing Monday or your answers on the comment section below. 
Have a nice week!

  1. I haven't tried Witching hour yet. I may have to. I have always been an Anne Rice Fan. Vampire Chronicles will always be number one on my Vampire list.

    1. They are sometimes, although I've read a lot of really long books that seems to be as short as ten pages for its fast pace. Thanks for stopping by :)
