Musing Monday is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and here's our question for today:
Do you care if the book’s storyline is unrealistic? Will you keep reading, or will you set the book aside?
Well, it depends on how unrealistic it's supposed to be. I can't think of anything offhand to give an example... I'd guess my reaction would probably be to start skimming through the book to see how it ends. Once a book loses it's touch, or never even gets my interest, I skim. That only happens once in awhile though. I'm usually pretty good about picking out books I know I'll enjoy.
Okay! This weekly meme comes from Sheila at Book Journey. To participate, all you have to do is post what you've just finished reading last week, what you are currently reading, and what you plan on reading this week. It's a good way to find other books you may enjoy reading. Then post a link to your post on Sheila's blog at the bottom of her What are you reading? post.
Last week I read Dance With A Vampire: book number four in the Vampire Kisses series by Ellen Schreiber, Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols, and Where She Went by Gayle Forman (sequel to If I Stay). VK #4 was good as always. I was surprised at how much I loved Going Too Far, not that I didn't trust Jennifer Echols to deliver a good story (I love her books), I just didn't realize I'd get into the story line for this one. And Where She Went, that one just surpassed my expectations for the sequel.
I'm currently in the middle of several, but focusing more on a couple: Hold Still by Nina LaCour and Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty.
Up next will be some I recently picked up at the library: A Tale Of Two Pretties by Lisi Harrison (last book in The Clique series), Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey, and The Dark Divine by Bree Despain.
Til next time!
