I almost never abandon books. Books are our friends! I always tell myself it might get better, and I always want to know what happens in the end (which is why I picked up Fifty Shades Freed yesterday, even though I hated the first two books). However, I am always disappointed when I finish a book and know I should have spent my time reading one of the 291 books on my TBR list. Here are a few books I wish I had abandoned:
No. Just no. I know this book got rave reviews, but is there an actual person out there who enjoyed it? I did finish it within two weeks because my mom lent it to me on my Kindle and it expired after 14 days, but it was hard. Let's just say I'm glad I only wasted 14 days of my life on this book and not more.
De. Press. Ing.
That's what this book was.
And I even like sad books!
The only book I can remember starting and not finishing is Anna Karenina, and that's only because I had to read four books for AP English that summer and I realized there was no way I would finish it on time. I definitely plan on picking it up again sometime though, especially because I need to read it before I see the movie.
How do you feel about abandoning books? Can you put one down if you don't like it, or are you like me and have to keep trudging though?
