Top Ten Tuesday was originally put together by The Broke and the Bookish and has been taken over by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is a freebie and since I saw Amanda’s post about books she’s DNFed this year, I thought I’d do the same. It’s interesting, because I DNFed a LOT of books at the beginning of the year but stopped doing so around June (save for one outlier in October). I believe that’s because I’ve gotten a lot better at picking out which books I’ll actually enjoy! I DNFed 22 books in 2018, so I’ll share just a few with you today.
This was probably one of my most disappointing DNFs of the year. It was the rogue October one and was a huge bummer because I loved Warcross, but just couldn’t get invested in the sequel.
As I Descended
Oof, this one was rough y’all. DNFed at 13% due to homophobia/biphobia/misogyny. Huge regrets.
This had potential, but the writing really needed some polishing. I was finding it kind of difficult to wade through and finally gave up.
I was bummed because it seemed this would contain some interesting and important information, but it was too dry and dense for me to get through. I’m almost wishing I had kept at it and just skimmed.
I know everyone has differing opinions on DNFing, but I find it’s the best way for me to keep reading! If I try to force myself through a book I’m not enjoying, I won’t read it at all. That being said, I have a lot of respect for people who don’t DNF and still manage to love reading. I think it’s lovely that we can all have our own ways of doing things.
