Here’s the thing, until a few months ago I could not even begin to imagine what DNF stood for. I had to ask someone on Instagram to figure it out because, well, I just did not know. So then I found out it meant “did not finish” and it still puzzled me. There are really people out there who will stop reading a book and have no second thought about it?
Honestly, I do not know how people do it. I have never DNFed a book and I do not think I ever will. I have the need to find out how books end, it does not matter how boring the book can be at times, I will always want to know how it ends. I get it that a book can get boring, that it is not living up to its expectations but I still feel like I should finish it. You just never know how it might end, maybe something will change later on that completely blows your mind. I get that after the halfway point most people lose hope but there are books that went from a 1 star to a 3 or 4 star book just because of the ending for me.
I have also seen a lot of people DNFing books that I have absolutely loved and I just want to beg those people to give the book a second chance. There is so much that happens that makes it amazing that you might not have seen early on but that becomes pretty prominent later on in the book…
Maybe that is just me but I do not DNF books for any reason. It might take me longer to get through a book if I am not enjoying it enough but I will finish it eventually.
What about you? Do you DNF books or see them through to the end?
