#Famous by Jilly Gagnon – Not feeling the voice or the lame jokes. Lost me at “You, shirtless, on a stallion?” DNF at like 5%
The Alarming Career of Sir Richard Blackstone by Lisa Doan – No reason. Just couldn’t get into it. So many reviewers say it’s a delightful middle-grade novel.
Spelled by Betsy Schow – I wanted to like this. It’s right up my alley, but the writing tried too hard to be snarky and funny. It ended up being lame. DNF at 20%
The Gilded Cage by Vic James – I read the first chapter and couldn’t get into it. A lot of other readers love it, though!
The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins – DNF at 40%. I really wanted to like this book, but the writing was so hollow. I didn’t care about the characters at all … and the story was super predictable. A disappointment overall.
So Tell Me …
Have you read any of these? Should I have finished them? Leave me a comment and tell me why! Or, let me know what books you’ve DNFd this month.
