I’ve already shared with you before, I can’t DNF books. If you don’t know what DNF means, it stands for ‘did not finish’ – you decide that you aren’t going to finish the book, no matter how much it begs you… You just put it down and never finish it again.
I mentioned before that there were a few books that I hadn’t finished yet – books that I’d put down and just haven’t gotten around to picking up again, but definitely will. So these are the five books that I really wish I’d just said no to, because I hated them so utterly and completely.
5) ‘Hot Feminist’ by Polly Vernon
I don’t like Polly’s writing style, I hate the fact that this was branded as feminist text but was a glorified fashion article… Blegh.
4) ‘Morning Star’ by Pierce Brown
On the other hand, I didn’t want to finish ‘Morning Star’ because I didn’t want the Red Rising trilogy to come to an end. Normally I would have finished a book of this size within a few days – a week at the most – but ‘Morning Star’ took me nearly two weeks because I had to keep stopping. There was just too much potential for pain.
3) ‘Ferryman’ by Claire McFall
‘Ferryman’ was one of the first books I ever reviewed on this blog, and I detested it. It was cliched, the editor didn’t do a very good job meaning the character’s names were interchangeable, and it was so damned repetitive that I nearly pulled my own hair out. She travels to the other side, then decides “nah, yknow what, I don’t feel like being dead” so forcibly travels back to the land of the living. If you can show me a more ridiculous happy ever after, please go ahead.
2) ‘Flight To Eternity’ by J. R. Harrison
1) ‘Only We Know’ by Simon Packham
