“Also, is Zooey Deschanel what Dave Eggers is to me to you? BRILLIANT SENTENCE, AMIRITE? WERE WRITERS.” — Jessica, who quite Heartbreaking halfway through
Dear Beca - I think you mean ‘quit’ (WERE WRITERS) and also, I finished Heartbreaking on Saturday. Just haven’t had time to write up my scathing review yet. Hearts!
PS Zan can attest to my inability to leave a book unfinished!
I’m a big advocate on not wasting time reading something you’re not enjoying, but I’ve probably missed out on some amazing books (Middlesex, The Savage Detectives) because halfway through I just wasn’t in the mood any more. I even keep a list of the ones that I might like if I only had the energy to finish them.
Directly related: I’ve finished a paltry 15 books this year (compare with approximately 35 in each of the previous years…). And one of those books was mostly pictures.
