Mary Ann Shaffer knows what it’s about! I’ve become much pickier when it comes to what I read. A couple of years ago, I wouldn’t dream about DNF’ing a book. I would struggle through and hate it, but I would always finish it. Now, when a book doesn’t grab my attention, I will put it down. And honestly, I don’t even feel bad about it. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a bad book. Most of the time it’s just because the timing isn’t right and I will pick it back up later on.
Then again, I do find myself commenting on books much more often. The thing that annoys me the most is weak writing. For example, I enjoyed The Court Of… series, but dear god, Sarah J Maas’s writing is so uneventful. I had to push myself through the repetition. That’s what kept it from being amazing.
I guess that’s just what happens when you’ve read books that are so brilliantly written that you want to savour every line. Not every book can compete with that level.
