{Monday Musings} Losing Interest

musingmondays41Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

  • Describe one of your reading habits.
  • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
  • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
  • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
  • Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
  • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Please feel free to leave a comment with either the link to your own Monday Musings post, or share your answer in a comment here and/or at Should Be Reading. Thanks!

My Answer

I was reading Easy Bake Coven and enjoying it, but about two-thirds of the way through it really felt like it started to drag. This is the point in a book when I expect it to take off, but instead I was growing bored. I lost interest. I just don’t really care how the story ends at this point. It’s kind of disappointing, because reading it became like a reading assignment for class. For now, I’ve put the book aside to read another. I might come back to Easy Bake Coven at another time… we’ll see…

Have you ever given up on a book? Did you ever go back to finish it?

  1. I used to read a book to the end, even if I didn’t like the book. Then I decided that life I too short to keep reading a book that was boring, or stupid. The last book I stopped reading was David Copperfield. Yes, I know it’s a classic, but I just didn’t like it.
