Books We Didn't Finish - April Edition


Savor You: I couldn't get into this story. I'm not sure if it's because it's the fourth book in a series I haven't read any other books from.  I felt like I was missing something not having read the other couple's stories.  I also didn't like the main characters.  20 years of lack of communication was implausible.  The issue could have been cleared up if they had just talked to each other.

The Breakdown:  I DNF's Behind Closed Doors, so I should have known I wouldn't like this one. I stopped this one about halfway through the book The main character was really annoying.  I was pretty sure about a third of the way through that I had the book figured out.  I did skim to the end and confirmed it.  This was predictable and not worth finishing.  I think I'll give up on this author.

The Wife:  I was really sad to DNF this book.  I love this author, but this book just fell flat for me.  I was so bored by the whole plot line.  I just wasn't engaged and really didn't care about any of the characters.

Off the Ice: I'm a fan of this author, but just didn't like the story. I think I was uncomfortable with the difference between the two main characters.  One is done with her first year at college and the other is in high school waiting to be recruited by ta major hockey league.  The abusive father line also didn't sit right iwth me.  Overall, way too much angst and I DNFd at 50%.

I DNF"D one book in April-Behold a Rainbow, it just didnt do anything for me. I hate DNF'ing, but I couldn't enjoy it.

I feel life is too short to spend time on books I'm not enjoying. I DNF more than I push through.

I didn't like Behind Closed Doors, either, but really liked The Breakdown. Even though the ending was predictable, I liked the way the author wrapped it all up.
