Top Ten Tuesday for 06/10/15

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was originally started by The Broke And The Bookish, where a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is ‘Top Ten Books I Have Quit Reading or DNF‘ so here it is:

1. Echo- Lorena Glass

I received this in exchange for an honest review, and I had to email the author to say I couldn’t finish it. I was 30 pages in and absolutely nothing had happened. Not like in ordinary books where the story is slow and getting started, I just read about the main character standing on a beach with some people speaking latin for 20 odd pages, it was ridiculous. The original concept sounded amazing, and I was excited to start the book, but I just couldn’t do it!

2. An Abundance of Katherines- John Green

This is the only John Green book that I haven’t been able to finish just because there was SO MUCH MATH! I tried so hard because I wanted to be able to read every book John Green wrote and his writing style was amazing, but the book was just not very exciting for me. I may try it again in a year or so, but for now it sits on my shelf waiting for the last half of the book to be read.

3. Stolen- Lucy Christopher

I got really into this book, and then stopped half way through for some reason, I think it just got a bit repetitive and boring, but I would like to try it again because I have recently heard some good things about it.

4. Thirteen Reasons Why- Jay Asher

I have no reason why I stopped reading this book half way through. I have re-added it to my TBR and will be reading it ASAP!!

5. The Good Girl- Mary Kubica

I only had about 100 pages left, and I may eventually come back to it, but it came to a standstill and not a lot was happening. Also, there were parts written in the present where the capture had ended, so I knew that the girl survived, so what was the point in reading to the end to find out if she escaped, because she obviously does!

6. Severed Heads, Broken Hearts- Robyn Schneider

Also known as The Beginning of Everything, I have heard a few people have said they gave up reading this because it isn’t really the best book ever, it’s a bit boring and feels like it’s trying to be too similar to TFIOS without the depressing cancer side note.

7. Life of Pi- Yann Martel

Why?? I don’t know! I found the first part really interesting, then when he got stranded on the boat I had to put it down because I found it really boring! A lot of people said it’s the other way around and they struggled to get through the first part to get to the interesting stuff, but I honestly just could not read on.

That’s all for today, I don’t tend to give up on books, I like to see them through, no matter how awful they are, especially just recently. There is another books I tried to read years ago about a girl who can communicate with animals and gets taken somewhere as a science experiment to see why she has the gift, but I cannot remember for the life of me what the name of the book is, so if anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
