DNFing Books | Book Chat

It's been awhile since we had a good ol' fashioned Book Chat around here, so I thought we'd sit down and talk about books I've DNFed this year, and reasons why I tend to give up on books.
Let me know your thoughts, and topics you want to see on Book Chat, in the comments!

RELATED: I talked about "Second Chance" books and authors that I almost -- or did -- DNF, but then went back and gave another try, and liked it!

Emergency Contact
Web of Frost
Pretty Dead Girls
The Boneless Mercies
Love & First Sight
and there were more, but these are the ones I talked about in the video.

A rant on VALIANT will be coming closer to its release date.

Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored video, though these books were sent to me for review consideration purposes. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.

  1. There was a book on creativity that I went back to finish. I thought it was starting to be a religious theme disguised as artistic process but it turned out to be good.

  2. This is so well-timed because I just DNFed How to Hang a Witch today. I still struggle with giving myself permission to abandon, but ultimately life is too short and my TBR is too large for books whose characters flipflop (or throw tantrums), plots change for no reason, pacing grinds to a near-halt, or whose deus ex machina moments become excessive.

    Also, 100% with you on juvenile writing. It sucks when a story has promise but the final book reads like a second draft, not a final draft.

    I also had difficulty with Shadowshaper (I read it, didn't listen), and I felt like the MC was a stranger to me. And the lack of mystery in the magic definitely made me 'meh'.

  3. You completed various good points there. I did a search on the theme and found the majority of folks will consent with your blog. talk to strangers


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
