Books I DNF…

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

30145666

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!

NaNoWriMo and Reading Update!

So I haven’t written anything for NaNoWriMo this week…I am so mad at myself for not finding the time to actually sit down and write this week but just so much has been going on! I’m not going to give up though, I can write 10,000 in 2 days, right? Anyways, I am going to try and catch up as much as I can this weekend and I am going to try my hardest to write everyday.

For reading, I am currently reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I am about 100 pages in. Again, haven’t had much time for reading either because I’ve been crazy busy but I’m trying. I also tried reading The Last Star by Rick Yancy but I really wasn’t feeling it so I put it down and maybe I’ll pick it up again in a few months. I also tried reading The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson and this is my first Jandy Nelson book ever but I didn’t really find the story that interesting and I got bored reading it. I still want to give I’ll Give You the Sun a try though because I have heard nothing but great things! Anyways, this week was an epic reading and writing fail so I am hoping I will be able to pick things back up this weekend, so fingers crossed.

That’s all for my NaNoWriMo and Reading Update and I hope you enjoyed it 🙂
