Top 5 Wednesday | Book I DNFed

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

This book made me so mad. It as so much slut shaming, including self slut shaming by the main character. Halfway through, with the main character continuously calling herself a whore every other page, I couldn’t take it anymore. I feel no grief over chucking this book aside and not looking back.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

This one I’m pretty disappointed about. It was one of the most hyped and loved books of last year and I wanted to like it, but I just…couldn’t. Something about it just didn’t jive with me.

Talon by Julie Kagawa

This book promised dragons and epicness. What I got? Extensive descriptions of the joys of Chinese food, surfing, and a girl trying to fit in. Yuck.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (Temporary DNF)

This book. I’m just sooo bummed about it. It was my most anticipated book of this year and I just…? I don’t know what it was about this book, but I had to put it down because it was putting me in a book slump.

Firstlife by Gena Showalter (Temporary DNF)

This is another book tthat I recently set down to be picked up later. I just really disliked the narrative voice–it was crude and immature and banged you over the head with constant rude jokes. The story was good, though, so I’m torn because I liked the book, but at the same time I disliked it…
