This week is ‘Books You DNF’. Books I did not finish:

 

5) The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon:

There wasn’t anything terrible about this book but I just could not keep myself interested in it. I think I found it a bit slow but I can’t really remember.

 

4) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky:

This just wasn’t really my genre. I read it because so many people seem to like it but I just got bored and couldn’t connect to the main character. I’m also not a fan of letter or journal entry format.

3) Black Five by J. Lynn Bailey:

My genre but not a fan of the writing. Too much information given too quickly, don’t like present tense and I thought that there was a lot of repetition of words.

 

2) Snakewood by Adrian Selby:

Again, my genre but didn’t like the writing style. Too much info given too quickly and the characters Gant’s chapters where written how the character writes which isn’t well, so I found it hard to read.

 

 

1) Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy:

My most hated book. A classic, I know, but it’s just so boring. So much flowery language. Never finished it for A Levels, never got past the third chapter but still managed a B on an exam on it.
