Book Blogger Hop – April 21-27, 2017

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on 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 question:

21st – 27th – Would you stop reading a book if an element of the plot strongly clashed with your personal beliefs, or would you continue reading until you finished the book? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

 

Hmm . . . I guess that depends on the quality of the book. I recently DNF’d a book because a human character plotted to rape an animal character (you can read my review of Theo and the Forbidden Language here). I don’t think you’ll find anyone who looks favorably on rape; it was simply the proverbial straw for me in this case. The book had a number of other issues that weren’t sitting well with me–both plot and prose wise.  So while I like to keep my mind open, I remind myself often: there are more books in the world than you will ever have time to read. Don’t keep reading something if it’s not entertaining you, no matter what the reason.

 

 

What do you think about this week’s question?
