Idle chit-chat is a random post I do here @ Jules Bookshelf that talks about stuffy about books, reviewing and blogging.

If you've been in my blog in the earlier days, you've seen one book that I'd reviewed and it ended up being not so great. In fact, I wanted to put it on my DNF/On-Hold list, but I refrained. DNF means Did Not Finish Books. I don't call it DNF though. I call it my "On Hold List" because I promised myself I will try these books later on. But I have one rule when it comes to "On Hold" books. And that's to never give a final review about them, unless I've already finished it.

My main example is Just One Day by Gayle Forman. I really wanted to stop reading it. Because I hated how naive the main character was. So naive in fact that I wanted to smack some sense into her. She was very naive and so impulsive and it really pissed me off.
This is the main reason why I don't review the books I DNF'd. As a reader and reviewer. I've realized that for me to write clearly I have to understand everything that happened and why. I don't have a bad opinion about DNF reviews. I just don't do those kind of reviews. Instead my DNF books are called "on-hold" because I know for sure, I'll read these books... one day. :D
* * *Well that's my latest Idle Chat for you guys! :D Hope you like it. And because I've suddenly became addicted with Maid-Sama here's the last gif :3
Hope you have a good day today!! :D
How about you? Do you have DNF reviews?
