It’s easy to read all my TRD posts and think that I hardly ever read a book I don’t like. And really, that’s usually true. I don’t run across many books I don’t like, partly because I just enjoy reading so much, but partly because I tend not to branch out as much as I should. If I find something I like, I seek out other books like it and read as many of those as I can. Of course, it’s easy to never be disappointed when you’re not really leaving your comfort zone all that often.
That’s why this week, I wanted to do something a little different for Tuesday Reviews Day. This week: my recent DNFs, or, all the books I tried so hard to read but just simply could not finish.
Listen. I know, as a voracious reader myself, refusing to finish a book can sometimes feel like a failure, or an admission of personal weakness, or even laziness. But life is too short for reading books you just don’t like (unless they’re for homework. Stay in school). There are far too many good and even great books in the world to waste time on a book that feels like work. So without further ado, here is my recent DNF List.
