It''s not that I'm giving up on these books entirely- I'm just putting them aside until later. Because I will want to read them later, usually after the same process.
This happened with The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle, an author whose writing style I LOVE. When I started TIMOU, though, I couldn't get absorbed into the story. A month later, I couldn't put it down. This also happened with Cinder (a book I loved) and just today with Two Boys Kissing. It is highly, highly unlikely that I won't like Two Boys Kissing, but I just wasn't feeling it at that moment.
After a few more tries, I picked up a few other books and finally got hooked on Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst.
Maybe this is happening because I own so many more books than I did before I started blogging. The thing is, I've been blogging for over 2 years and this has only started in the past few months. Maybe my reading habits are just changing, and that's okay... it just means if I ever go anywhere, I'm going to have to bring A LOT of books with me.
