Welcome lovely readers! I hope you are all having a wonderful and productive start to your week!
Today’s post will be all about the Top 5 books on my DNF list.
If you didn’t check out my previous post for my Top 5 Favorite Couples, go over and take a look.
As a dedicated reader, I absolutely hate not finishing a book.
The disappointment in myself is sometimes hard to overcome and I usually try my best to find something that I like in order to get me to finish it. Sometimes I read little by little, opting to read a chapter a day while I read something else primarily. Like when you don’t like the meal you are eating but force yourself to finish it anyway.
There come times when I cannot get through a book. And it doesn’t necessarily mean anything against the author. The book and I just don’t click. I try and try to commit myself but keep finding ways to not have to read it.
Some reasons, just to give you guys an example, of what would cause a mismatch between the book and I are:
- The style/voice of writing isn’t captivating me.
- The characters are flat.
- The story isn’t well planned.
There are more things I take into account but usually, if a books hits more than one thing in that list…I end up not finishing it.
Of course, this is just me. You might not agree and that’s completely okay 🙂
Without further ado, my Top 5 DNF:
- WinterSpell byClaire Legrand
I just couldn’t get into it. I felt suck a disconnect with the voice of the writing that I found myself zoning out when reading.
2. Elements of Chemistry by Penny Reid
I got to the first couple of chapters but unfortunately, we weren’t a match. I couldn’t get into the story and I didn’t like the characters.
3. Idol (VIP, #1) by by Kristen Callihan
I made it to half-way but the story wasn’t enough to capture my attention and neither were the characters.
4. Trust by Kylie Scott
I was interested with how the story began but as the chapters went on, I found myself not caring. It had a lot of potential but it wasn’t a right match.
5. A Girl Named Calamity byDanielle Lori
Let me say that I reaaaaaaaaaally tried with this one. I wanted us to click! But you can’t force things to happen.
