We ALL have those books that we just picked up but never got around to finishing, and I am too, guilty of that. Just because we DNF (stands for ‘did not finish’)a book doesn’t mean we don’t like it, and for me I usually DNF a book because I get distracted by a new shiny one. Anyways, here are the books I have DNFed and don’t forget to comment the ones you have below!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
Okay, I absolutely adored A Court of Thorns and Roses, but A Court of Mist and Fury is HUGE and high fantasy which takes me a long time to get into. I was really enjoying it though, and got halfway before I just put it down and never picked it up again. When I do get around to picking it up again, I will have to restart it because I totally forget what happened!
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare
Cassandra Clare is one of my all time favourite authors, and I love all her work, but I just couldn’t get into this novella bind up! I know I will love it because I didn’t get far at all into the book before I put it down and got distracted with other books, but once I pick it up again and actually read it more I know I will kick myself in the head for not finishing it sooner.
The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan
This is a newer release so I don’t feel that bad about not finishing it, but still. I was actually enjoying this book until Lord of Shadows came out and totally consumed my life. I do plan on jumping into The Dark Prophecy again because I have heard amazing things about it and know that I will love it just like every other Rick Riordan book I have read!
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
I’ll Give You the Sun was a FANTASTIC book and I was so pumped and ready to pick up Nelson’s other book, The Sky is Everywhere, but somewhere along the line of reading it I just never got around to finishing it. It wasn’t anything I was loving, but I did like it and wanted to continue reading it…but didn’t. It is a contemporary though so maybe I will pick it up again this summer during the BookTubeaThon if I have time and read it. Who knows though because it was a DNF!
Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
For some reason this Sarah Dessen book didn’t grab me as much as the others did. I still plan on reading it though, because I am sure that I will like it, but for now it is in my DNF pile…which is something I never thought I would do to a contemporary because I usually fly through them. I do think that it was because I had another book I wanted to read, but still! No excuse, I need to read this book.
Those are the books I DNFed and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Camp NaNoWriMo Week 2, for some motivation and tips!
