With an ever-growing TBR pile and not enough time to read every book, it’s a saddening prospect when you realise you must put one down in order to move onto another.
Typically, books are added to the DNF pile because they failed to meet expectations, or you didn’t jive with the characters/story/writing. It’s always a struggle to admit that maybe this book isn’t right for you, that it’s time to move on to something better. Sometimes it’s a reluctant goodbye as you fall into a reading slump or must focus on important real world work.
There is no shame in it. That book may not be your cup of tea, or the timing just isn’t right, and that’s fine. So here is a list of some of the books on my DNF pile as of April 2017 and why they were added to the pile.
