I tried it, but I failed to connect. All I remember is that she got shoes for free and have a big butt. Oh and that ravenblue hair.
Eh, dnf

2 The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks
I tried, and tried, but after 150 pages when I still had SO much left I gave up.
I only read book 2 it a year ago, but remembered nothing.
I was bored.
DNF.

3. Summer at Tiffany's by Karen Swan
Bored from word one

4. The Broken Angel by SW Vaughn

6. Marcus by Anna Hackett

7. Texas Secrets by Jean Bashear

  1. Lol, Linda, shoes for free and a large butt do indeed seem like a flimsy incentive to go on reading! :D I see that though seasons may change and whole months go by, one thing remains unchanged: your determination to stay in shape!! :) Though I have to say I would I would probably feel more motivated to go out walking if I lived in such a beautiful place! Gorgeous pics :)

  3. Yay for the walks and loving your pictures yet again :) It took me 2 or 3 tries to get into the YGalenorn series to be honest. Now I love it, but didn't at first lol

    1. I just do not want to force it, and I do hear she collects lots of men, would be annoying

  10. I've tried a few Galenorn books but her writing just isn't for me I guess.

    1. yes :D You are supposed to destroy them, but I think they are pretty

    2. I love lupines! They have a lupine festival here in the states near where my dad lives in New Hampshire. He has gone in the past and gotten some awesome photos. Why are you supposed to destroy them?

    3. They are not native so they push out every other flower until only they are left

  13. Sorry you had to write another big post of DNFs. The only one I've heard of/read on there is Brent Weeks' The Broken Eye. The series is okay, but I think I am mostly continuing because the next book is the last one, so I figured why not.

    Beautiful pics as always!

  14. Yasmine Galenorn is an author that I've been wanting to try. I've seen mixed reviews for her. Maybe I'll try a different series.
