For the record, I decided not to finish the following novels that were sent to me from authors to be reviewed, or were part of a blog tour:
Exodus 2022 by Kenneth G. Bennett
Emissary by Thomas Locke
I'm not sure if I will every go back and finish the novels (because there is something inside me that makes it physically hurt to not finish a book) but with the multitude of novels I have to review piling up and other novels I have been waiting to read being released, I feel my time would be better spent there. I may return to these in the future.
