I had such high Hope's for this book, and when I begun reading it, I thoroughly enjoyed it, however after a few chapters it seemed to drag on, it obviously showed clues through out the book which I felt that they were to plainly showed. There is minimal character development, however the story is interesting and I am planning on continuing it at a later date.

Help Littens! I‘m about half way through this one. It feels so slow going, and it‘s taken me forever just to get this far. Should I keep going? Is the end worth it? #toreadornottoread #dnf?

marleed I didn‘t realize this book was based on IRL people I wish I had known that as I read. Perhaps if you google a bit about the MC you will have renewed interest in the book‘s conclusion. 3w
Copwithabook @marleed that is such a good idea! Thank you 3w

I hate that this book wasn't good for me. Everything fell flat. I lacked investment in the story and the characters. #DNF #BuzzCoffee

So far I'm not loving this book. The words are just words and are failing to create an image/world for me to enter. I'm not calling the #dnf yet but so far 🌟.

Soubhiville I read the whole thing, but didn‘t care for it. Good luck, I hope you like it better. 1mo

Both of these books are embarrassingly late, so I finally returned them to the library. The tagged book I actually tried to read the other night, but after about 50 pages I realized it was secretly an inspirational romance (I cannot with that genre). That, combined with the boring wilting flower that was the main character, made me decide to #DNF.

The Sherry Thomas I will definitely get back to at later time, though.

Another one that I powered through recently. Again, another tough subject due to LGBTQ relationships, a crime, and the survival of a unit with kids and trying to find a place and a sense of belonging. There was some positive notes to this, but it felt rushed, disjointed and sadly disappointing. I would have #DNF‘ed it, but something forced me to keep going. 3⭐️😕 #recentlyread #nospoilers

Aargghh! I DNF 2 books this week!

1. ➡️ The writing is great but I felt that as I read on, the story is getting more depressing & there's no real plot;

2. ➡️ Scattered & fragmented storytelling. I spent most of my time re-reading pages as I have no idea which characters is talking at that moment.

So looking forward to read these two books but life is too short (or in my case, my TBR is getting big), to finish books that frustrates me!

I hate bailing on books... but this is only my second #DNF for 2019 so far! It‘s an interesting idea, set in Belgium in WWII- a story about resistance newspapers and plots within plots. But this debut feels roughly written- the perspective and frame add confusion, and the cast of characters feels tripled in size because of inconsistent use of names! My TBR has talked me into grabbing something else!

I'm not someone who usually intentionally #DNF's books, but I'm doing it now. This is just one of those MG/YA books that doesn't appeal to me as an adult. The writing is good, but the story isn't offering me anything I haven't gotten from other books over the years. I'm giving it a So-So instead of a Bail because this mostly an audience mismatch, but figure even a well-read teen could have the same issues, so it still feels fair to rate it at all.
