Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they release a Top Ten List and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
I found this week really difficult as I hate not finishing books, even if I am not enjoying it I will force myself to get to the end. So I don’t really have that many books which I almost put down because the thought never crosses my mind.
Handmaid’s Tale – It wasn’t that I wanted to put it down, more of a I didn’t properly pick it up. It was a book I was reading with my English class and we read a chapter each lesson (which is the worst way to read a book in my opinion) I really couldn’t get into it and so after reading a chapter or two I just left it. It wasn’t until after the exam that I actually picked the book up and read it and absolutely loved it.
Across the Universe – Again, it wasn’t that I wanted to put it down, but more that I needed a break from it. I was finding it hard to connect with the main character and she was starting to annoy me. I had heard really great things about the series and didn’t want to hate it so I stopped reading it for a few days. When I went back to it I had it finished within a few hours, loved it once I got into it.
I Found You – This was started really well, then kind of slowed down and turned a little bit strange and I was close to putting it down. But I stuck with it and I’m glad because it has a really nice ending.
Never Forget – Another one I almost put down due to a character. Spoilt, stubborn and kind of annoying. It took a while but eventually she turned into a likable person and I was able to finish the book without throwing it at a wall!
Books I Nearly Put Down, Didn’t, But Really Should Have
Freak of Nature – I had been so excited for this book so stuck with it even when it started to go downhill. But upon finishing it all I could think of was that there were so many other books that I could have read instead of this one. Really disappointed.
This is What Happy Looks Like – I had heard great things about this book and it sucked when things started going badly. I almost put it down a few times but stuck with it. Now I wish I had just given up on it.
. Which books have you almost put down? Which do you wish you had? .
