Book I Didn't Finish in July

Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness:  I didn't make it past the first chapter of this book.  I had a huge issues with how the main character and his friends kept talking about the heroine.  When the hero referred to her lipstick as "Crimson Slut"  I was done.

The Wanderers:  I loved the synopsis and was so looking forward to loving this book.  It seemed like it would be an epic tale like The Stand.  I got about 20% in and realized it wasn't for me.  I was bored.  I was also not a fan of being able to tell which way the author leans politically.   That turned me off.

Sweet Pea:  I really wanted to love this book, but I really disliked the main character.  I can like a book with an unlikable main character, but she was over the top.  I didn't find any of this book funny.  Maybe I just don't have that type of sense of humor?

Celine: I really thought I would like this book based on the synopsis.  However, I was really bored.  The book kept going back to the main character's past and childhood.  I couldn't understand why it was pertinent to the story.  It just felt like an unnecessary info dump.
