I decided when I started my blog to try not to post reviews for books that I have DNF'd. That doesn't mean that I never will post a review for a book I didn't finish, but it would just have to be a special circumstance. Personally I don't like to do a full review on a book that I didn't finish. However, I decided I didn't want to just leave the DNF'd books off my blog completely. So I've decided to start adding in DNF posts here and there to let you know which books I have had to DNF.
I try really hard to finish every book I start. I really hate not completing a book I've started. Every time I do DNF it makes me cringe, but there are so many wonderful books out there. If I'm really not enjoying one and I think there is no way it can be redeemed then sometimes I just have to move on. Here are the two books so far this year that I have not finished-
Lamb By: Christopher Moore
I was really excited to start reading Lamb since I have heard so many wonderful things about it. I haven't read a Christopher Moore book before and I wanted to read this one for the Humor genre in the Insane Genre Challenge. However, this one just was not for me. I got about 17-20% in and I did not find it funny and I would find myself doing anything else just to avoid reading this. I really did not want to DNF it since I had picked it for one of the genres in my challenge, but I decided (after trying to read it for most of February) on this one I will just have to pick another book.
First & Then By: Emma Mills
I am very surprised that I had to DNF First & Then. I was really looking forward to reading this one and I even won this book in another blogger's giveaway! I love the cover and the summary sounded fantastic, but when I started to read it I just wasn't interested. For me this book was dull, dull, and dull. I have since donated it to the trading box we have in my IRL YA book club. Maybe someone else will enjoy it!
So those are the books that I have DNF'd so far in 2016. Have you DNF'd any books so far this year? Which books?
Does anyone else cringe when DNFing a book?
