Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion created by Rainy Day Ramblings.
Do you give out one star reviews?
No. 

I don't have an official policy about it, but I'm not going to struggle through a completely unreadable book just so I can turn around and write a review about how much I hated it. It's not worth the effort. Life is too short for bad books. 

It's even pretty rare for me to give out a 2 star rating since it falls into the same category. 
Admittedly, this more tends to happen if the book is vastly over-hyped or if it's a continuation of a book series I'm into that should have been allowed to die a dignified and reasonable death a long time ago.

  1. I am glad that you are smart enough to let a book good when you aren't enjoying it. It took me years to figure that out because I was too darn stubborn, and I ended up reading a lot of not so great books because of it! Thanks for doing TMST this week.

    1. I was very lucky. In 7th grade (the last year I was actually in a "reading" class), my reading teacher told us, something to the effect of: You will have to read so many things you don't want to read in your school career. In this class, if you don't like a book, put it down and find another one. Everyone can enjoy reading, if they can find the books they like.
      It kind of stuck with me.
      I just can't bother with books that bore me so much I dread picking them up.
