Popular Books I Did Not Finish
For most people, not finishing a book is not that big of a deal, but for me it definitely is. Most of the time, I know which books I will definitely enjoy and those that I won’t, so I don’t really bother to read books that I don’t think I will like. Mind you, that doesn’t mean that I never get out of my comfort zone, simply that if I’m not really feeling like reading a specific type of book or genre at a certain time, I don’t force myself and leave it for another time. However, there are many books that I haven’t finished and most of them you most likely know and love.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Mass.
When I first read Throne of Glass I thought it was alright, but there wasn’t much that made me want to read the next book, so it’s no surprise that I didn’t even finish it. I don’t really know why, but I didn’t really click with this story. However, I definitely haven’t given up. This series is still in my TBR because I think that I just tried to read at the wrong moment of my life. Hopefully, when I start it again soon I will enjoy it much more.
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
As far as I am concerned, I did finish this book, because I am not planning to read the few chapter that I have left. I think this was the first truly devastating novel that I ever read, and when the BIG thing happened (won’t specify cause then I’ll spoil the book for those that haven’t read it) I spent a good hour sobbing my eyes out. The moment that that happened, I lost all interest in reading what was left. I don’t really know the real ending but, at this point, I don’t care either. Maybe I’ll finish it in the future, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth.
I first read Divergent about two years ago and I really enjoyed it, same with Insurgent. However, I didn’t think they were as amazing as everyone claims they are. I read about 35% percent of this book and by that point I was kind of uninterested. I think the story was becoming a bit dull for me and I just stopped reading it. I’ve always intended to go back and finish it because I am curious about how it ends (I’ve never seen the last two movies), but I never get around to actually picking it up again.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.
Again, Sarah J. Mass… I imagine some of you think I probably have something against her. I really don’t, I just couldn’t get into the story when I started reading it (the exact same thing that happened with Throne of Glass). This series is also currently in my TBR because I haven’t given it a real chance. However, I’m not gonna lie, in the few chapters that I read I didn’t like much of what was happening. In spite of that, I am very optimistic about this book, so I hope it gets better as I read more of it.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
The only reason I read this book was because of how much I loved Eleanor & Park. However, it is clear that I didn’t enjoy this one as much. I wasn’t liking the story or the way it was written, I also didn’t like Levi (the main male character) or his relationship with Cath, so that didn’t actually make want to continue reading either. I think that all the content we got on what Cath wrote (Simon and Baz’s story) was unnecessary, not because I disliked it (in fact, I think Carry On sounds very interesting and it’s on my TBR) but I just think it distracted us too much from the actual storyline.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer.
I started this book immediately after finishing The Lunar Chronicles, but, once again, I just wasn’t captured by it. I was really hopeful for this one when I read the synopsis, but I don’t think it lived up it. Nonetheless, I will not discard this novel because I think I might really enjoy it in the future. But, as of right now, it’s not really what I am wanting to read.

Can completely relate to your disappointment with Fangirl. Eleanor & Park was an amazing book but Fangirl was not as great. I did finish it though so I can tell you didn’t miss out on anything.
I am honestly bummed that I didn’t like it as much as I hoped, specially because now I’m kind of skeptical about reading her other books as well.
I’m with you on the SJM books. I’ve tried her and find her books boring. Life’s too short for me to continue series that I don’t care for.
