Book Bloger Hop

Question of the Week:
Would you stop reading a book if an element of the plot strongly clashed with your personal beliefs, or would you continue reading until you finished finished the book?
                                  My Answer: 
Yes I would stop reading the book if it clashes between my personal beliefs. I would also still leave a review of the book and probably write to the author about it. So far I haven't had that problem yet and hopefully I won't have to but if It happens I promise not to be mean about it. 
What about you would you stop reading a book if it clashes with your personal beliefs?

Someone coughs behind us and Travis disengages, leaving my lips hovering in mid-air. He catches my look of astonishment before directing his attention to the stage. 





Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

Quinn Caruthers has several problems.

Her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon.

And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.

But Lucas left town years ago and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.

But then a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its con…
