To DNF Or Not To DNF... That Is The Question

I don't know about you, but I really hate to DNF (did not finish) a book. I tend to avoid it at all costs and I just power through, so confident that I will eventually like that book that absolutely everybody else seems to love.

But to be perfectly honest, that usually ends up with me reading another book at the same time (and then another, and another, and two months later I haven't picked up that book again, even if I keep meaning to).

Or it leads to a massive reading slump that can seem quite literally never ending. (Check out my post on books to break your reading slump if you need some recommendations!)

So, this year, I have made the decision to be absolutely ruthless when it comes to DNFing a book. Actually, I've been quite lucky with my reads this year and I haven't had to DNF very many (yay!). But still, I plan to be ruthless going forward.

I'm hoping, through DNFing more books, I'll end up getting through more books (and books that I actually enjoy, instead of books I'm trying to force myself to enjoy) and I'll end up spending more of my free time reading, rather than sitting on my phone (something I've been trying to do for a while).

What do you think about DNFing books? Is it something you do often? Please leave me a comment and let me know!
