Good Monday morning everyone. Kinda crabby this morning so be forewarned… It seems like I have gone through a phase of DNFing books, Did Not Finish for those of you who may not know. I’ve noticed that I tend to go in cycles, and some weeks it just feels that almost every book or every other book I pick up I DNF. Some times I write a review some times not. I’m wondering if I’ve gotten picker or if it is related to my mood, remember where I said I was crabby. I’ve been down this week and I’m thinking it may have led to the latest round of book rejections. I seem to have little tolerance for crap this past week. I know other times it is that I have been busy and have trouble committing to time to get into the book and lose interest. And yet again there are other times where it is a matter of having finished a really good book and nothing seems to measure up.
For the books that I did finish I am also afraid I might have been harsher in my reviews had my head been in a better place. Oh sure I should probably wait to write those review, but I hate putting them off. I finish a book and write the review before I start the next one, usually within half an hour or sooner of putting the title down. I read too many books that are similar in plot to wait, also I just plain read so much that if I wait a few days I’m going to be off in a new world having forgotten what went on in the last. Hence why I never wait to write my reviews. If the publisher asks me to hold a review until a month or couple weeks before release date, I wait to read the book.
Wasn’t I supposed to ask a question in here somewhere? Oh yes…How does your mood affect your reading? Does a bad attitude reflected in your reviews? Do you find yourself DNFing titles like me? On the more positive side, does a good mood make you more lenient?
