No Point!

Have you ever read a book that had no point to it?

Of course you have. Who hasn't?

The question is: what do most of us do about it?

As a reviewer, I try my really hard to keep on reading because it may actually get better toward the middle. There have been some books that did exactly that in the past.

But, let's face it, there are some books that you just can't get through. At times, I find myself skipping whole paragraphs, even full pages to get through it!

Now, I'm not going to name any titles (I don't want to get myself blacklisted here), I'm just speaking the truth about the dark sides of book reviewing. We've all been there.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier, Sandra! If I am reading a book that I really don't like at all I put it down. Usually though, I can find some good out of every book. The ones I can't finish I rate as 1 star. I have only done that about four times (that I can remember). Have a great week!

  2. Hi, Julie. My mother always said if I can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Well, that practice is great in theory. But when I don't like a book, I can't help but say it. I can't repress that. Nice meeting you too, Julie!
