When I DNF books its always for a multitude of reasons there is never just one reason for all, maybe I’m just not feeling it, maybe I’m hating it, Maybe I just wanted to read something else and then forgot all about it.
So here we go books I didn’t finish in 2016 for a multitude of reasons
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
I admit that I got to page 200 and put this book down and it’s not because of the writing or the story I was LOVING IT but it is because I marathoned the series right before picking this up and felt like the TV series was just so well done that the book was really close to what I just watched.
I will pick this up again in the new year and I can’t wait for the TV series to start again!
The Haters By Jesse Andrews
This was an impulse buy, I was at the store and seen the cool name and bright cover and I had heard of Jesse Andrews before so I thought why not?
I put this down after around 50 pages because I couldn’t stand the language and jokes, I just didn’t like the writing. I think I may be unhauling this in the new year.
All the Light We Can Not See by Anthony Doerr
Now this is a book that I DEFINITELY 100 million percent plan on picking up
The reason I put this down after reading a few pages is the writing was really descriptive and pretty and I knew I wouldn’t love this unless I read it in a better mood. I was in the mood to read something easy and quick BUT I can’t wait to read this story.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close By Jonathon Safran Foer
I haven’t technically DNF’d this because I am still holding on and have it as my Current read on goodreads. I am loving all of Oskars chapters but I’m struggling with his Grandfathers point of view. I’m actually listening to this on Audiobook though and usually I would have this finished really quickly. I’m hoping to have this finished before the new year but I’m not going to stress myself out if I don’t.
Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde
You ever read a book and then just think, wow my brain can’t handle this? Yeah well that’s what I though of this one, I read a fair bit and yes it was pretty and there was a lot of cool comparisons to colours but there was just to many sentences that were there for you to think about and figure out and I just can’t be bothered with that. I don’t think I’ll be picking this one up again.
Crystal Kingdom by Amanda Hocking
This whole series was a cover buy, the three books were cheap and they sounded okay plus they were pretty so I picked them up. Nothing has ever bored me so much. I read these at the beginning of the year and pushed through them so I could justify me buying the series only to rage quit at the third book because I just didn’t care anymore. This series just wasn’t for me.
So those are the books I DNF and whether I’m planning on reading them again or un hauling them. I hope you guys didn’t read too many crappy books, life’s to short to waste time on boring books. I’m all for DNFing if I don’t feel into a book at the time or if it’s giving me the shits.
