DNF time



Boring. She should have focused on Lucy, I read a lot and have no idea who Lucy is. The queen got her POV, blah blah got a POV. Yawn


This one I really tried with, I even made it to 160, but nothing had happened except for her sulking over a boy.
No worldbuilding either

I was bored. And why was she in a prison for men? I get it after reading on, but still that is just silly and unbelievable

Eh, I did not care for it

It felt choppy

So this was one of those the narrator did not work.
She sounded like a robot. She talked too fast. My ears did NOT like it

Sorry they were stinkers for you.

Sometimes a DNF is the best thing to do. I just finished a book that I really didn't like. Now I wished I had just stopped when I first thought about it.

Joyousreads said...

Yep. Narrators make or break a book so I can see why you've flounced on the last book. I've done a few of those myself and opted to read instead of listen.

Have a nice weekend!

Sorry to hear these didn't work out. On to better ones! :)

Sophia Rose said...

Hmmm, lots of reasons and yes, those issues would do it for me as well.

Onward. :)

Blodeuedd said...

Yay for getting rid of them

Blodeuedd said...

It happens

Blodeuedd said...

The worst thing is reading a whole book and just hating it and then hating the time spent on it

Blodeuedd said...

I just could not. It was so horrible

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Blodeuedd said...

Oh yes onward

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Sounds like a good decision to stop reading each one.

Molly Mortensen said...

I liked the Black Company. I read it a while ago, so I don't know about the choppy thing. Sorry that you didn't like it.

Blodeuedd said...

I agree

Blodeuedd said...

It just felt messy and not for me

Yvonne said...

So many DNFs. There didn't seem a point in finishing any of them.

Blodeuedd said...

I have had lots of library books

Nadene @Ttly Addicted 2 Reading said...

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy these. You made the right choice though, as spending time reading a book you are not enjoying is the worst thing to do.

Blodeuedd said...

No worries, I am glad to be rid of them

Unknown said...

I'm not a fan of Danielle Paige either because as you said, she doesn't put enough world building into her stories!

LilyElement said...

:( I wanted to read Stealing Snow, now you have me worried.

Meh on the bad narrator.

Lover Of Romance said...

oh some more DNF's....sorry to hear about Singh's book though, sometimes narrators can really put me off a book.

Jen Twimom said...

I don't even remember that Nalini book - was it a novella in an anthology?

Blodeuedd said...

I honestly do not know...I guess

Blodeuedd said...

As this was my first I did not know that

Blodeuedd said...

Maybe u will like it

Blodeuedd said...

:/

Blodeuedd said...

Well it was a short story, pretty sure it was like 30 pages at most in rl

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

I've heard Acid wasn't so hot. Shame. Sounded like it could be good. Always enjoy these. :)

Blodeuedd said...

It was badly done

Melanie Simmons (mlsimmons) said...

I love the cover of Acid. Sorry these didn't work out for you. I love the Nalini Singh books. I even like the narrator. I think she fits the Psy a lot. I always speed up the playback too. LOL
