Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s is Books I Decided to DNF (did not finish) Too Quickly. I have a hard time with this topic because I rarely DNF. I always try to push myself to finish books. So, I’m changing my topic to The DNF’d, which is really just books I started but didn’t finish.
1. The Elite
I got to page 43 and then gave up. I couldn’t stand America.
2. Burn for Me
I actually started listening to this book for my book group. I couldn’t stand the narration. I have up at 25% when I found out I wouldn’t be able to make book group that month.
I really wanted to read this one, but it started out so boring. I made it onto the bus with the MC, but then had to return it to the library.
4. The Now or Never Moment: Omnibus
This one was not my thing. The writing didn’t flow well in my opinion and the story was weird.
5. Falling for the Player
This one was a M/M “sports” romance. There wasn’t any sports and I couldn’t tell the perspectives apart. Also, didn’t like the story.
6. City of Lost Souls
I loved the first three books. I made it through the fourth, but I couldn’t finish the fifth.
7. Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light
I didn’t make it past the first chapter. This was another book group book from a long time ago that was worse than reading a text book.
8. The Hangman’s Daughter
I don’t know why I didn’t finish this one. It’s been so long. I must have gotten bored.
I don’t really count this on as a DNF because I do want to read it someday. I tried to start it, but got side tracked and have been too overwhelmed by the sheer size of it to go back.
