I finish most books that I pick up. Every now and again, I meet a book that I can’t force myself to keep reading. The reasons for this may be that I’m not connecting with the writing style, I’m bored, or I find the content objectionable. When I don’t finish a book, I don’t give it a star rating or write a real review for it.
DNF Book #1: Dancer Daughter Traitor Spy by Elizabeth Kiem
Why I DNF: Unfortunately, this book had too much language (f-words) and not enough to keep me interested. I didn’t get very far, and I don’t plan on picking it back up. I have too many other books to read to spend time on something that I don’t enjoy.
Since I received an ARC, I will most likely give it away. Either here on the blog or I will re-donate it to ARCycling.
DNF Book #2: Out of Nowhere by Maria Padian
Why I DNF: I was looking forward to this book for quite some time. I was excited to read it because A) it is told from a guy’s point of view, and B) it’s about sports (soccer), which is different from my usual fare.
Unfortunately, this book had too much language (f-words) for me. They were all over the place and I didn’t make it even 5% of the way in before I quit.
