*if you read that like the announcer on VH1’s “I Love the 90s: Part Deux”** I love you and we are soulmates
**Also, they really need to put the I Love the 90s out on DVD. Now on to the post
Here are some more of the books I have marked “DNF” recently. Some made me extremely angry. Others bored me to tears. Others I simply lost interest in. If available, I will provide my Goodreads “review” for why I DNFed, and if not I will try my best to remember my reasoning.
Now That You’re Here by Amy K Nichols
dnf at 42%. This is probably more my fault than the book, but I put it down for a few weeks and kind of have no desire to go back to it. I didn’t particularly relate to any of the characters and I just don’t really care about what happens.
What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I kind of lost all desire to continue reading this book. I wasn’t a huge fan of Fitzpatrick’s My Life Next Door, and I have so many other books I want to read there is no point to continue with this at this point. Maybe I’ll try again.
Sway by Kat Spears
I didn’t write anything for this, but I remember this making me extremely angry. The guy was an asshole and I think it reminded me why I rarely read books from a male POV.
Splintered by AG Howard
yeah…I think I’m gonna go ahead and mark this DNF. I started reading this book back in December, got about 70% (I think) put it down and never picked it back up. And on top of that, I’ve read a few reviews that say the series just goes down hill and if I wasn’t that into the first one I doubt I will like the rest of them.
70%! I probably should have just suffered through at that point.
Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes
HAHA I can’t believe all I wrote was “Nope”. This book really pissed me off as well. The MC was an asshole, and not the kind of lovable asshole. Plus, I think it might have been really offensive. Or that was Sway.
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I read such wonderful reviews about this, and I just couldn’t. I Haven’t picked it up in like a week. It was SO MOTHERFUCKING BORING. I DNF at around 70% and NOTHING had happened.
with such an important mission resting on her shoulders, Nyx didn’t do a lot of anything except whine and wander around a house talking about about her mission. I couldn’t stand Nyx and how wishy washy she was about everything. I mean, i understand not being sure about things, but when you have a different opinion on something practically every single page…I wanted to strangle her. Nyx loved her family. she hated them. she loved them. she hated them. She hated the demon dude ( I don’t even remember his name, and he was the best part about this book), but she loved him. No she loved his SHADOW, no she hated him. I mean my neck hurts from all the back and forth.
There was also the added fact that there was MAJOR insta love and a love triangle. I don’t automatically hate love triangles. In fact, sometimes I can enjoy them. But usually only when the girl (as those are the most frequent love triangles I come across) that the two guys are falling all over at least has some redeeming qualities so I understand why they like her. I mean, even the love triangle in this wasn’t as bad as the fucking instalove. It’s actually one of the worst cases of it I have come across recently.
And that’s about it. 70% through the book and that’s all I got. It was actually just starting to get a bit more interesting, but at this point I don’t even fucking care. Of course, I seem to be in the minority about this book, so it’s probably more of a “it’s not you it’s me”. I will still check out Crimson Bound
Sorry for all the cursing in this one, it must have really bored me. Also another one where I made it 70% and gave up! I’m disappointed in myself.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
This is one of the first books I remember actively DNFing. I was reading it while at a family wedding, and I every time I would pick it up I kept complaining about how BORING it was. And then my BF’s sister asked why I was still reading it if it was so boring, and I didn’t have an answer. So I stopped.
Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle
I only made it 60 pages in, but I am so bored. The Rapture has come and the world is ending and I just can’t find anything to care about.
Looks like I didn’t give this one that much more than 50 pages. Oh well.
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
DNF 50%. SO BORING!
