Initial DNF @ Page 50

As of right now, I’ll be DNFing this one. Unfortunately, I just wasn’t jiving with this story. My mind kept wandering while I was reading and I was unable to connect to the characters and stay focused on the story.

At the moment, I can’t really tell if it was because I just wasn’t in the mood for this genre, but I do usually really enjoy contemporaries. I may try to come back to this one at some point, but probably not any time in the near future.

Take Two! Final DNF @ Page 100

I tried reading this again after seeing so many wonderful reviews. I got to page 100 and had to stop again. I’m not really sure why this book isn’t working for me, but it just isn’t and I think I have to accept that. Clearly my opinion is in the minority though!

Thank you for reading!
