This week’s Book Blogger Hop question was submitted by Elizabeth:
Why would you stop reading a book? Too long, wrong genre, bad language, not what you expected, or something totally different?
I stop reading a book for a lot of reasons. One of the main reasons is if I don’t connect with the characters or the plot right away. I want to feel invested in a story early on, or I usually don’t have the motivation to continue. I will also stop reading a book if it doesn’t have good pacing – I don’t like when a story starts to feel like it is dragging on, or there is unnecessary information. I typically give a book about 40-50 pages before I throw in the towel. Sometimes I will stop reading a book if I don’t feel into it, but I know it’s just me – if I’m not in the right mood for that genre or that style of writing, sometimes I will stop and then start again another time.

Freda at Freda’s Voice hosts the Friday 56. This one is a lot of fun.
Rules from Freda:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Add your (url) post in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. (Click the Friday 56 button to get to the main post/Linky).
*It’s that simple.
My Friday 56 this week comes from Life After Perfect by Nancy Naigle. I’m reading this ebook as my Just for Fun book in May. Here’s from 56% in the ebook:
