Books you didn’t finish

 

So this weeks topic is books you have been spoiled for! which didn’t really appeal to me as I tried to avoid spoiler reviews or anything related to the book until I have read it so I wanted to do something different and this was a topic from way back in November.

Now DNFing a book is a rarity for me but there are some out there. It could be that I just read them at the wrong time in my life and I may try them again in the future.

 

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

This book has got a really great rating on Goodreads but I just couldn’t get into it. I think I just started reading at the wrong time. I might try again sometime but at the moment I have too many books on my TBR pile.

Skagboys

After watching Trainspotting I was intrigued to read this prequel, however I found it really difficult with the Scottish dialect.

I got to around 80 pages and then admitted defeat.

Bring Up the Bodies (Thomas Cromwell, #2)

This is another one with really good ratings. I read the first installment of this Wolf Hall and didn’t really like it but was advised that the second one was better. I tried to listen to it on audible and still couldn’t do it. I just can’t get on with Hilary Mantel’s style of writing.

Grey (Fifty Shades, #4)

I am not sure what I was thinking when I picked this book up.

Viper Wine

I just couldn’t get in to this book, possibly the wrong time again for me.

I was really scraping the barrell with this lot.  Let me know if you have read any of these and if I should attempt to give them another go.

Thanks for dropping by
