Top Ten Books I Almost Put Down But Didn’t

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

 

 So my picks for this Top Ten have various reasons as to why I almost set them aside. Some of them I actually ended up really liking, they just took a little longer to convince me. Others I felt fair enough about them, but even when I finished I didn’t really form any sort of attachment to them, and I felt like I might as well have not read them in the first place. And then there are those that I fought through to finish just out of spite and ended up resenting the fact that I was too stubborn to DNF them.

 

For whatever reason, these are books that I almost put down, but didn’t:)

  1. I hate to miss out on a good book I wasn’t in the mood for, or that starts slow, so I have a hard time giving up on books. But sometimes I feel like I wasted time trying to finish the ones I keep going for, too.

    I’ve read Incarceron–it was one of those ‘not bad, but not great’ books for me.

    • Same here! There have only been a handful of books that I legitimately COULD NOT FINISH, no matter how much I wanted to stick it out through the whole thing. And then there are those times that I just wasn’t in a super read-y mood, and I feel like I ruin the first-time reading experience for myself.

      Incarceron for me was one of the ones that got better as I read it, so I’m glad I stuck through with it. Though I’m not entirely sure if I’m invested enough to keep with the series, you know?
