Recent DNFs

DNF = Did Not Finish.

I’ve always believed that there are too many GREAT books out there to waste time with the ones that don’t capture me.  That said, I don’t want to be too negative about the following books, because I’m sure that some people will love them!

The Program by Suzanne Young | Had to cash this one in after the first few chapters.  Did not dig the writing. Or premise. Or characters.
In Honor by Jessi Kirby | Read about half of this and then skimmed the rest. Never really felt connected to the characters or understood why they liked each other, except for physical attraction.  After Will Trombal, Jonah Griggs, and Augustus Waters, my expectations are quite high.

I guess, more than anything, I want you readers to know that I have been reading (or trying to!) even if I haven’t posted many reviews lately!

I am also reading Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, which is wonderful so far!  Later today, I will be starting, The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider, for which I am pumped.

Cheerio!  What are you currently reading?  Do you feel compelled to finish a book you don’t love?

  1. Im with mom, i can’t put a good or bad book down. Because what if the bad book ends up really good. Example Jellicoe Road i thought the beginning was so boring, but it got better and better and FABULOUS as it went on!!!

  2. I typically give a book about 50 pages to snag me or I set it aside… it could be that it’s a great book, but I’m not in the right mood for it in the current season. I tend to give movies about 20 minutes.
