How do you handle not liking a book? DNF?
As an author, it stings a little when someone doesn't finish one of my books, but when I step back and think about it, as a reader I've DNFd a few books in my time as well.
It's never anything personal against the author when I've not finished a book, it's just the story didn't jive with me. I can't like every book my favorite author writes, and now that I'm an author, I can't expect everyone to love my books, either.
Another question is, though, do you publicly DNF the books? As in on Facebook, Goodreads, Blogs….And how to handle future books released by said author?
While I (Jaycee) have plenty of books I DNF, especially with a lot of books being the same, I typically just mark it as read on goodreads, without giving it a rating. I don't see the point of rating something I couldn't finish.
