Books I DNF’d (Thank U, Next)

When I was younger and even through college I was completely okay with DNFing books. Somehow this changed the last couple of years. I hate it. This year I gave myself permission to start DNF-ing again and created a shelf for these books. There are four total.

The Kill Order by James Dashner

I tried. I just could not get into this one. I’ve wanted to finish the series but I didn’t find this interesting one bit. I don’t even remember what this was about but my goodreads comment was “It’s just fight after fight/ run away.”

The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale

This is the only one on this list I genuinely feel bad about. This was going to be a buddy read and then two of us couldn’t get into it so we picked a different book instead. I thought about slowly getting through it but ended up unhauling it instead.

Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights by Salman Rushdie

This book caught my eye from when it was published and so I was so happy when I finally found it on sale. This was just not what I expected. I was thinking it’d be about djinn and the magical world mixing with the normal world. Nope; it was about all these side characters I didn’t care about.

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison

This was probably my fastest DNF. I really wasn’t feeling the cliche husband is cheating with the best friend/ sexualized office assistant. The wife was not memorable at all. I made it 36 pages and it was a pretty short book which means theoretically I could have just pushed through but it was so bad.

What are some books you’ve DNF’d?
