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 favorite couples in books, but I wasn’t feeling that SO I chose an older theme that I hadn’t done yet! I am a chronic DNFer and although that has made reading much more enjoyable for me, I’ve probably also missed out on reading some books I may have ended up enjoying. Here are a few:
This was a bummer because I really loved Warcross, but I just felt like I couldn’t connect to the characters in this one. I also completely lost interest in the plot. I did give it about 200 pages, but I’m wondering if it would be worth another shot someday.
I made it about 60 pages into this one, which only ends up being 11%. I was really struggling to get through it, but know Destiny ended up liking it a lot and we have similar tastes. So I may give it a try again someday!
I am very much in the minority on this and I DNFed after only one sitting (it is a short book, so I made it 13% in). I really think that if I was able to try again with few distractions around me while in a more focused mindset, I would enjoy it more. This is definitely the book I’ve thought about coming back to the most.
I’m not sure why I didn’t end up feeling invested in this one, but now that I’ve been taking in more crime fiction I feel like I might enjoy it more.
I made it about halfway through, but this tome is ~700 pages so I still had a very long way to go. I do love Stephen King and the premise was very interesting, but I was having trouble with the execution. It was a library book that I needed to return, but I have considered giving it another shot since I invested so much time in it.
Have you gone back to any books you’ve DNFed?
