I’ve seen so many people do this list and we all know I love a good list. And some spilled tea. Here’s a quick list of books I DNF’d in 2019. I gave myself permission to put aside more books I wasn’t enjoying but I still powered through quite a few I wasn’t enjoying as much as I hoped.
I honestly hope some of you have read and thoroughly enjoyed these books!
- War And Peace by Leo Tolstoy
This was a chunker. I started reading it when I went down to my sister’s graduation in May and never picked it back up. I am planning on reading it next year. Maybe switch off audio and physical so it’s not a 100% DNF but I am going to restart it so I’m counting it.
- We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families by Philip Gourevitch
This just made me lose interest in it. The writing was so dry, which makes sense because he does more newspaper/ magazine writing but also it’s not meant for a novel.
- After We Fell by Anna Todd
I may or may not have started hate reading this series but it got old after a while and I wasn’t really in the mood when my hold came in.
- The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
This was a book club read and I tried so hard to get into it and enjoy it because I had heard so many good things about it but it was confusing and difficult to keep everything straight. I did listen to it on audio which may have contributed to it but I have no desire to try again with a physical copy.
