Featured & Follow Friday #37 & Book Blogger Hop #10





THE FUTURE & FOLLOW IS HOSTED BY TWO HOSTS, PARAJUNKEE OF PARAJUNKEE'S VIEW AND ALISON OF ALISON CAN READ. EACH HOST WILL HAVE THEIR OWN FEATURE BLOG AND THIS WAY IT’LL ALLOW US TO SHOW OFF MORE NEW BLOGS.




Post Prompt:

What is your take on DNF Books. Do you review them? Choose not too review them?



My Answer:

There has been a few books that I have DNF but I do not rate or review them, because I feel it is unfair for me to review or rate a book that I have not finished reading the whole book. But that is only my opinion. I do totally understand why readers do rate and give an honest review of an DNF books. And that is absolutely ok as well.

  1. I give books to my parents as gifts. We have similar reading tastes, so I buy them books that I also want to read, so everyone wins. We share a Nook account so it's really easy.

  2. I usually don’t review DNF books, either. I don’t want to critique something that I’ve barely read. I’ve never given a book as a gift. I don’t know anybody who read in real life. :(

  3. I gave a similar answer about DNF books. I'm still conflicted about it though, I feel like as a reader I would want to know if a book has issues, so I don't end up buying it. I guess the part I hate most is leaving a star rating. If I'm just able to explain myself without condemning it to a one star, that is one thing. I feel like most people just look at ratings and fail to read actual reviews, but maybe I'm wrong. Old follower. Here's my FF post.

    1. I totally understand your conflicted feeling but I do read the DNF reviews because the reviews always help me decide if I should give the book a try or not I don't go by the rating at all I go by the reviews. Thank you for stopping by my #FFF.

  4. I decided after a lot of debating to post reviews for my DNFs but I totally understand those who choose not to. All a matter of personal opinion. :) Happy reading!

  5. Unless I've made significant progress through a DNF book, I don't review it. But if I've gotten to the 40-50% mark, I will write a review of some sort. These are not like my typical reviews, though.

  6. That is awesome that your family is full of booklovers! I'm torn on reviewing DNFs. I don't like to do a full review of them but sometimes if I've had a bunch of DNFs and books that are just kind of meh I'll do a mass post and just list why I didn't finish the book. I don't rate it on Goodreads either though.

  9. I feel the same! I usually don't review books I've DNF since I've always felt that it wouldn't be fair to review a book that you haven't finished.

  10. I love gifting books!

    still posting review because it affected me in some ways. I want people to know how I felt reading the book because it might help them justify their take on the book (if it was similar to mine). Happy Friday!

  12. I sometimes will offer the reason why I didn't finish a book, but I don't know that I would call it a review. Nor do I rate books I don't finish. I don't feel that would be fair.

    I am lucky to know a lot of readers too. :-) I enjoy giving books as gifts!
