Reading has been blah for me lately. Which is really disappointing. But it is what it is. I think in the first 2.5 months of 2019 I have DNF’ed more books than I did in all of 2018. I didn’t keep good records for 2018 so I don’t actually know how true that is but it feels like it. But for me, DNF isn’t always that it is a bad book but is usually because the book just isn’t working for me.
This week it was Hired by Zoey Castile that I had to declare as a DNF. I really loved the first book, Stripped. It was fun, light hearted and sexy. This one had a little heavier tone that started out fine but around the 25% mark it started to drag. The heroine, Faith, is the daughter of a politician. Aiden, the hero, is a stripper/escort. They meet and are instantly attracted to each other. That worked for me. To me, it felt like the middle of the story was lacking any sort of forward motion. It was probably trying to build a slow burn, but that is not what I wanted, so I moved on with my life.
Have you DNF’ed any books this year? If so, why?
