This week’s theme is books you DNF and here are my choices:
Number 5: The Mighty Hunter by Michelle M. Pillow. I started reading this one after reading one of the other series she had written at the time. (Don’t ask me I don’t remember.) But this was not something I enjoyed reading and when the enjoyment is not part of my reading process I just stop reading.
Number 4: The Green Woman by Peter Straub, Michael Easton & John Bolton. This is a really bad graphic novel, with really bad artwork and I didn’t like it at all. I tortured myself trying to understand what was going on, until I reached the middle and gave up on it.
Number 3: The Warden by Anthony Trollope. This is my most recent DNF. It was part of my March TBR. actually. All I’m going to say is that I did not like it. I just couldn’t find something to draw me into the story and make me read it. I had started thinking of reading the book as a chore. So DNF it is.
Number 2: Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews. This is the same case as with The Warden. I know there are people that loved this book, but I am not one of them.
And the total blasphemy in the book blogging community…
Number 1: Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon. I hated this one from the start and, since I had already suffered through Outlander, I couldn’t justify this self-torture to myself. I know. I know! People L-O-V-E love the Outlander Series. But I don’t. You can all try to change my mind, of course. In fact, I challenge you to give it your best try.
Sigh. I love being contradicted. Contradiction could have been the spice of life. If Literature hadn’t already claimed first place.
So, this was my Top 5 Wednesday post.
Now it’s your turn…
What did you think of my T5W choices? Do you agree with me? Do you disagree with me? Is Outlander part of your religious system? And if yes, does that mean you think I’m going to Hell? (Oh, God! This would make a hilarious dystopia. Don’t you think?) What are your top 5 DNFs?
