Books are really good until they’re not.
After all we are human and we have likes and dislikes and sometimes we don’t like some books because they are too bad and that’s okay even though we sometimes go through an eternal debate about whether we should abandon the book or not…
So here is a list of 5 books that we Did Not Finish (DNF):
#1 More than this by Patrick Ness
Raven: This book had a very interesting plot but I couldn’t make myself go through his writing. It wasn’t bad writing, it was just bland writing (at least according to me… *whispers* don’t hate on me)
Beez: I got through this book but I didn’t fancy the writing as well. The story too fell short of my interest. The possibility of what would happen kept me going. And I found it disappointing so I told Raven to not bother with it (I rule).
#2 We all looked up by Tommy Wallach
Beez: This book was so bad. Bad bad bad. The characters sucked, the writing was meh, the story was bleh. I’m not even a little sad I didn’t complete this book. #noregrets #thuglife
#3 Horns by Joe Hill
Raven: This book had one of the most interesting plots I had read in a long while BUT I hated the writing!! I loved Iggy and all the characters but his writing seemed to drag everything and I didn’t have the patience to stick around till the end. This is literally the ONLY book that I went on Wiki to read about the rest of the plot.
#4 A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
Beez: I didn’t not like this book but I was too lazy and I just didn’t put in the effort to finish this book so… (I know Raven is going to yell at me for this.)
Raven: I CAN’T BELIEVE I AGREED TO LET THIS BOOK BE ON THIS LIST!
#5 Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
Raven: This book was just plain boring. The idea of having a story within a story was so unique, it was the reason I picked up the book but the main story as well as the story within just did not grab my interest and I did not give two shits for the characters.
We would also like to mention some of the other books that we DNF’ed:
1. Matched by Ally Condie
2. White Teeth by Zadie Smith
3. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
4. The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
