Books We Didn't finish - June edition

Just me today. Autumn didn't have any books that she didn't finish! 

Dream Nights with the CEO- Normally, I love stories about bosses and assistants who fall in love.  But this one was different.   I got about halfway and I decided it wasn't holding my interest enough to keep going.  I didn't like all of the dream sequences.  I didn't like the characters and didn't really feel any attraction between them when not in a dream.

Where'd you Go, Bernadette?- This may be an instance where I should have read the real book instead of listening to the audio.  I didn't like the narrator.  I also
didn't like the story.  The story is told  through gossipy e-mails and letters, none of which were amusing or even remotely interesting.  I now they are all supposed to lead up to why Bernadette leaves her family, but by the 3rd snippy and gossipy e-mail, I found I didn't care to find out why she left.

Nice to see a post about unfinished books. I always feel guilty but why should I? I have so many on my TBR they can't all be to my taste. I didn't finish On Beauty by Zadie smith it just did not grab me and strangely I am so over feeling guilty :)

I *loved* Where'd You Go, Bernadette, but I can see how it would not translate to an audio book.
