#T5W: Top 5 Book You DNF'ed (Did Not Finish)

Top 5 Wednesdays are hosted by Ginger Reads Lainey and you can find the Goodreads page here for more information. 

I have several books I did not finish.  Here's a list of 5 of them.

I just was not enjoying this book.  I know many did, but I heard either you loved it or hated it.  I guess I was one of the latter.

Another that was loved by many, but not me.  It was compared to Gone Girl, so I should have proceeded with great caution or even avoided it all around.  I believe in the future if a book is compared to Gone Girl or Girl on the Train, I will just skip it.

I was skeptical about reading this, as dystopians are not in my comfort zone.  I decided to listen to the audio version and really gave it more than a fair chance.  I just could not get into it, so marked it DNF.

I had  read this entire series and enjoyed the first several books, but after awhile I just found the bew characters that were being given major storylines, I was enjoying less and less.  The older characters that I did like were given smaller and smaller storylines.  Finally, I was no longer enjoying these books, so I I stopped reading them.

This book was just too dry and boring. I've read a few book about 9-11 - some are good and others like this were not or at least not for me.

  1. I had Divergent for a while, but it just doesn't interest me at all. Even the movies seem eh to me. Don't think I'll ever pick up Gone Girl, but Girl on the Train interests me for some reason. Hate you didn't like it.
