Books I decided to DNF too quickly, is this week's great topic chosen by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Read up on the rules here and join in on the Top Ten Tuesday fun.
I normally don't DNF books. I feel like I need to finish the book once I've started it. Maybe it gets better. Perhaps I'm not being fair. I still want to know how it ends. All reasons, why I usually continue and don't stop.Basically, I'm not okay with DNFing. But, I am getting better at it. I'm getting older, and well...there's not enough hours for all the books I want to read.In hindsight, there are books, I probably should have just given up on. I'm looking at you, Infinite Jest. It took me almost two years to get through it...
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I tried 3 times so far and couldn't get through it, but I definitely want to read it one day, because I love the man otherwise.
- The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. It can't be that I as a fantasy reader gave up on this book.
- The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie. I'll get through you, one day! I will!
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I don't know why I struggled, but I gave up.
- Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Choderlos de Laclos. The epistolary format did my head in.
As I said, I don't DNF often, so that's my list for now. Do you usually DNF? Or do you struggle to do so?
