Top Ten Tuesday – Books We Wished We DNFed

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a topic, and you choose ten book related things to answer the topic. This week’s topic is actually Books We Decided to DNF too Quickly, one that neither of us could really answer because neither of us are prone to DNFing. Instead, we twisted it slightly to books that we wished we had DNFed.

1. A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Emily and I had to read this last year for our bookclub, and from the very first page I was struggling. I was just so incredibly bored with this book, to the point that I didn’t even finish it in time for our bookclub’s meeting. I ended up forcing myself to finish it, and now I just don’t understand why I didn’t allow myself to DNF it because I only remember how much I disliked this book and nothing else.

I was intrigued by this book simply because my experiences with Scott Westerfeld had been so up and down over the years. When I finally got around to reading it I was so pleasantly surprised because I actually really enjoyed it. I even managed to convince a friend to buy and read it at the same time because she could tell how much I was enjoying it.

Five Favourites of 2017

Tanaya’s 2017 Favourites

Ask any book lover to tell you their favourite book and I’m sure they’ll have a struggle narrowing it down to just one. Even picking five favourites of 2017 was difficult because there were just so many incredible books we both read.

I in particular have found that my reading tastes have shifted immensely in the last twelve months. When looking at all the books I read last year, a significant number were adult fiction as opposed to YA. Whilst once upon a time the thought of my favourite books no longer being my favourites somewhat saddened me, I now am excited for the all the fantastic books I’ve yet to discover and fall in love with.
