"It's not you, it's me." Some books just don't work for me, whereas other readers may have really enjoyed them. This feature will be showcasing books that I never finished or reviewed; you know…...the dreaded DNF.
Trusting Liam by Molly McAdams - Guys, I really enjoyed Taking Chances, one of McAdams' other novels, so I thought for sure this one would be decent and perfect as a beach read, but I just couldn't do it. It felt a little too formulaic for me. Also, there were some moments when the feminist in me wanted to burn it all down, such as when he said to her, "You're mine" and not in the hot Jamie Fraser way, in the creepy overprotective way.
Illusionarium by Heather Dixon - I struggled with this story. It is set in a really unique dystopian world, but the author didn't give me enough background on why the world is the way it is or enough world building. It was really strange. I also struggled with her other novel Entwined.
Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer - I love a good time travel story, but if I don't buy into your time travel methods, then I can't get on board. I just wasn't buying it, which is a shame as I love the setting of summer camp.
Between Us and the Moon by Rebecca Maizel - The main character is super quirky and normally that doesn't bother me, but in this book it did. She was just a little too strange for me to the point where I couldn't relate to her at all. In sum, I wasn't invested.
What about you guys? Have you read these books? What are your thoughts? What makes you put a book down for good?
