Top Ten Tuesday – The Last Books I DNFed


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic was about something different but it didn’t sound interesting to me at all so I decided to skip to next week’s topic.  Future me will hate this but I’ll deal with her later. In the meantime this post is about the most recent books that I did not finish (or DNF). Hope you all enjoy!


1. In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan 

Of all the books on this list this was the one that I was the most disappointed about. I had been looking forward to Brennan’s books for several years, but never got around to reading it till now.  Sadly it did not live up to my hopes, I just didn’t like the writing style


2. The Institute by Stephen King 

Another disappointment, though not as big as my disappointment for In Other Lands. I just didn’t get into the story, I didn’t like the main character at all.

3. The Wives by Tarryn Fisher 

This story just rubbed me the wrong way, and I was pretty it sure it would when I started it. But I wanted to give it a try because it was on the Goodreads Choice Awards for last year.


4. Normal People by Sally Rooney

I quit this book because the writing style was just super annoying.

5. The Overdue Life of Amy Blyer by Kelly Harms 

This story bugged me too for several reasons, the characters were just not great and the story was slow.


6. Verity by Colleen Hoover 

From the very start of this book I hated it. The beginning is unnecessarily gory, and the interaction between the two people who are attracted to each other was a little gross. Or maybe I was just not in the mood for a straight romance.


What are the last books you’ve decided to quit? Do you have a hard time quitting books? Don’t forget to share your Top Ten Tuesday post with me.



  1. The Wives! This makes me so sad. Did you at least skip to the end and see how it ended? Same for Verity! I get that we all can’t love everything, though.

    • Yeah it was very soap opera-y. My main problem with it was how hard it was pushing monogamy, and as a person who is polyamorous it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

  2. Normal People seems like a divisive book. Personally, from what I’ve read, the relationship sounds pretty awful so I will not be trying it.
