Top 5 Wednesday (6) | DNF books

top 5 wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday was created by gingerreadslainey. If you want to join Top 5 Wednesday take a look at the Goodreads group!

The topic of today is books you didn’t finish. This topic is similar to one that we had for Top Ten Tuesday not too long ago, so I’ll try to pick some different books for this one. 

I haven’t posted much on my blog this far in November, I’m afraid NaNoWriMo is eating my soul. Bear with me! 

Titles lead to the books’ Goodreads pages. 

TELL THE WOLVES I’M HOME (carol rifka brunt)

Tell the wolves I'm homeHow beautiful is this title? Guh. I admit I only bought this book because of the title. I’m only about 50 pages or so in, but I’ve placed this book on my “on hold” shelf. I intend to come back to it, but as of now I have so many other books that I prioritize. This is a YA coming-of-age novel set in the 80s, and it’s about June who lost her uncle to AIDS and soon finds out he was gay. I’ve heard this is a really emotional book and I’m going to finish it eventually.



MR. MONSTER (Dan wells)

Dan WellsThis is the second book in the YA fantasy-thriller series series about a teenage boy obsessed with serial killers. The first book was alright, but I wasn’t too keen on the fantasy aspect of the story, so I gave it three stars. This one I just forgot to continue, whoops.






LUMIÈRE (Jacqueline garlick)

LumièreThis is one that I got from NetGalley as a free e-book, but unfortunately I couldn’t get through it. It was just weird and the main character was annoying and some of the things she did didn’t make sense to me. I haven’t read steampunk before so that was cool, but eh. No.

NEUROPATH (scott bakker)

NeuropathThis is a psychological crime thriller and I don’t remember 100% what it’s about, but it’s got something to do with experiments being done on human brains in order to control them. I think. I didn’t finish it and I don’t really remember why either, I guess it didn’t grab me enough. 






A.S. KingTechnically this book is “on hold” because it’s really good and I don’t actually want to DNF it, but I haven’t picked it up since 2012… The reason for that is because I only have it on my phone and even though I’m used to reading fanfiction on my phone I don’t like reading books like that, for some reason. So I hope I can get it on my kindle eventually. 

Have you read any of these books? Is there one I should try to prioritize?
