This Week’s Topic:

Top Ten Books I Just Couldn’t Finish

I’ve been really good in the last year or so about not DNFing books. I don’t think there is anything wrong with DNFing books. I mean, I even wrote a post about HOW I do it here and part of my yearly wrap-up for the blog includes a DNF December Blitz of all the books and/or series I’ve opted not to finish for one reason or another. I just mean, that in the last year or so I’ve been very fortunate to pick up books that I’ve been able to finish.

So far this year I’ve DNF’d 4 books. Last year, I didn’t DNF a book until June. But here are the last 10 I’ve had to put down and why:

In Order of Most Recent:


I was listening to the audio version and I just found it couldn’t hold my attention with all the jumping around from past to present. Plus it is SO LONG!

I was really excited to read this diversely cast sequel but I failed to see the chemistry between these two at all.

This book hits the ground running and I had immediately fell behind. I felt like the synopsis served as the exposition and that I should already know who these people were and their relationships.

I really enjoyed the others in the series but this went from 0 to 100 in a second with no build up of chemistry or anything. Just didn’t work for me!

Read Series Review


Everything in this book seemed to move at a glacial pace. Whether it was the romance or the severe lack of drama, everything was taking its time to develop and I was bored.

After a promising first part, I was eager to see where this would go but it went nowhere anytime fast.

Read Series Review


I bought this before the whole Kindle Unlimited scam happened but this was so boring and bland.

Too much angst from our female lead and the lack of the male POV had me feeling nothing from these two.

This started off promising for me but I disliked how judgy our lead was towards other women. And I felt zero chemistry between the leads.

This book just needed something to take it to the next level. I wanted complex politics and drama but everything felt mundane.
