Books I’ve DNFed

As a rather picky mood reader, often I’ll DNF a book if it’s not accommodating to my current mood. Most of the the time when I DNF these books, I put them down with the intention of returning to them sometime soon when my mood is better suited to that read. Recently, I’ve been in a very, very picky mood so that means I’ve DNF a lot books, so today I thought I’d share with you some of the many books I’ve recently DNFed.

  1. Obsido by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Now, I loved, loved, LOVED Illuminae and Gemina, but when I finally got around to trying to read Obsido I just wasn’t in the mood and 30 pages in, I felt myself falling into a slump because I was forcing myself to get into this book. I will get around to picking this one back up soon, if I’m in the right mood! because oh my i’m so excited for this series to end.

2. P.s I still love you by Jenny Hann


This one I’m not sure I’ll actually return to sadly. . . I went into this book a few month after having read (and loved) To all the boys I’ve loved before, and I think the time between the two books didn’t bode well for me. Half way through this book I was forcing myself to turn the pages. I was rolling my eyes all the time. Everything felt so unnecessary and Lara jean was really starting to bother me. . . Peter was cute though and probably the only reason I pushed through to just after the half way point before finally putting this book down.

3. Frost like night by Sara Raasch 


I devoured book one, I stayed up all night to finish book two and then I finally decided it was time to finish the series after a year (or two) and then promptly realised about 60 pages in that I needed to DNF it for now and reread the whole series . . . and well, rereading books one and two just seem like too much commitment at the moment . . . so hmmmm I’m not sure when I’ll get back to this one. 

4. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff


Ahhhh okay. So i know this book is super popular but for the life of me I can’t get past chapter one. I’ve tried about 6 times now to get past the first chapter, but every time I read it, I’ll get a few pages in and  get so annoyed so I’ll stop reading. I really don’t like the format for the first chapter and I KNOW the whole book isn’t like that and I just need to push through for a little bit longer and then It’ll get good but oh my . . . I just can’t. Hopefully one day I’ll get through it, but I’m not sure that day will come anytime soon. . .


These are just some of the many books I’ve DNFed recently. Most are ones I’m planning on returning to at some point! What are some books that you’ve DNFed?
