I think I’ve only DNF’d one book before and that was The Boneless Mercies. I always try my hardest not to DNF a book because I want to see each book through to the end. I know that it’s probably not the best thing to do but I hate feeling like I’ve wasted my time with a book, and the ending can always change everything.
I don’t have a list of 5 books this week because there haven’t been many that I’ve wanted to DNF before. I’m sure there is ones where I’ve really wanted to put them down, but I don’t think the majority of the time I was glad I finished them which made it so difficult to come up with this list.
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm and each week there’s a different bookish topic to discuss. If you’re interested in participating, or checking out Shanah’s blog, click here!
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I actually did put this book down for a long time when I first started reading it. But not because I didn’t enjoy it! I initially started reading it when I had a lot of work to do for University, and I underestimated just how little time I had. I wasn’t able to invest my time properly in this book, and I knew if I forced myself to read this book, it wouldn’t have been one I enjoyed. I picked it up again a couple of months later, and flew through the book, and I’m so glad I did because it’s an incredible book.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
I pretty much contemplate DNF’ing all of Maas’s books. That sounds so bad but I do enjoy the books, especially the ACOTAR series! It’s just that I have to devote a lot of time to reading them because they take me ages to get through. The one I wanted to put down completely was Empire of Storms, it’s my least favourite book in the Throne of Glass series, and I had to force myself to finish it. I’m still determined to finish the series though! I need to read Tower of Dawn before I start Kingdom of Ash, but I’ll be waiting until the Christmas holidays to pick them up when I have a lot of spare time.
