- The Diviners by Libba BrayI only got a few pages into The Diviners before I had to set it down. I do 100% plan on giving it another chance. I think this DNF falls more on me being in a mild slump and having problems getting into a book. There was nothing wrong with it, I just couldn’t get into. Here’s hoping I can pick this up again in 2018!
- The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. PearsonThis was a very quick fail for me. By 10% through I was thoroughly loathing everything about it. This book is DEFINITELY not for me.
- Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri ManiscalcoI got about half way through HPD when I had to set it down to read some ARCs that I needed to review. I technically don’t think of this as a DNF because I do fully intend to finish it once I get through my ARCs (I’m way behind so we’ll see how long that takes) but since I did have to set it down for several months it has made the list.
- Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose OlderI made it halfway through Shadowshaper when I finally gave up. I just couldn’t get into it, sadly. I’d be willing to give it another try in the future because it had a lot of good things working for it.
- The Knowing by Sharon CameronI also take the blame on this one. I think I was just too accustomed to the world of The Forgetting when I went into this. The Forgetting and The Knowing are sister novels, but they’re very opposite, which made it harder to get into The Knowing. Based on my love for The Forgetting I think I’m going to really love this one, I just need a bit more time before I pick it up again.
- Flame In The Mist by Renee AhdiehAgain I think I get the blame on this one. It’s not addictive right out the gate, so I put it down pretty quickly. Once I’m caught up on reading and I’m on a good reading streak I’m willing to give Flame another try.
- The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi LeeI was so sad when I couldn’t get through this one, but I’ll definitely give it another shot at some point.
