Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
June 5: Books I Decided to DNF (did not finish) too Quickly
I don’t actually DNF books (I’m currently writing a post on this that will be going up soon) but I’ve certainly come close to it a few times. The books I’ve chosen for this week are all books I didn’t enjoy that much and considered DNFing at least once.
Most of these were either poorly narrated, had inconsistent pacing and subplots, or were full of bland characters. Sometimes it was a mixture of all three. The Raven King had a few problematic elements that I felt were never properly addressed, but the with the others it was more of a case of promising synopses failing to live up to expectations.
Do you DNF books? Are there any books you’ve been really disappointed by?
