Top Ten Tuesdays #186: DNF

Posted June 5, 2018 / Top 10 Tuesdays, Weekly Memes / 4 Comments

Reasons I DNF

Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.

I don’t DNF very often and I usually do it with good reason. This topic is technically books I DNFed too quickly, but decided to do my own spin. I only have 18 books on my DNF shelf and most of them probably deserved the DNF. I decided instead to explain some of my reasons for DNFing recent books.

Bullying / Mean Girl Trope

Disliked the MC / Quit the Series

Too Simplistic / Not What I Expected

Too Cheesy

Disliked the MC

Tried Twice and Didn’t Stick

Quit the Series / Frustrating Trope

Too Pretentious

Felt Pointless

Quit the Series Finally

  1. I honestly wished I would have DNFed The Heir. I basically only read it to see how America and Maxon were getting on (and that part was totally worth it because they continue to be ADORABLE) but I think ultimately, it didn’t make up for the three hours of my life that I spent on it. I wish I had your ability to just put down a book! I have this irrational need to finish all the books I read because I need to see how everything ends up. I think I’ve only DNFed 3 books in my life…

  2. Internet Famous wasn’t really for me either, but I managed to finish it. It sounds like something my younger self would like, but at this age, I think it’s just too simplistic and just there in an already saturated market.
