I haven't read any of these books and I have a feeling I shouldn't lol

Here's my list... 10 Reasons why I've stopped lending out books

Somewhat in defense of these novels, none of which I've read, from my experience when you do a lot of writing/critiquing/editing/reviewing, it becomes harder to finish any book because you can't turn off that internal editor and it takes out much of the fun. At this point I DNF almost every book I start. If I actually make it to the end of any book that I'm reading "for pleasure," it's probably a 5+ star book. I think the only book I finished purely for pleasure this year was James Rubart's Spirit Bridge. I also enjoyed Jody Hedlund's An Uncertain Choice, which I was reading because it's a similar title in my genre. I haven't made it through any other full-length novel at all this year unless I was editing it for WhiteFire Publishing, and I've started a bunch of books.

I really liked Tidewater Inn though I haven't kept up with Colleen's more recent novels. Someday I'll have to return to her lovely stories. :)

Endless Pages-Other people have liked them they just weren't for me!

Dina-I'm actually pretty good at just reading for fun and not over-thinking but somethings are just impossible to overlook.

Rissi-Lots of people liked it but I just had such a hard time getting through it!
