Thank U, Next: Books I Did Not Finish in 2018

Image result for thank you next

First, I want to say I am totally not creative. I got the idea of the title for this post from Jenna (J.K I’m Exploring) you can check out her post here.

This year was the first year I really embraced not finishing books I’m not enjoying. There is so little time and so many books, I just didn’t want to dwell on ones that weren’t working for me. I used to force myself to finish books but that always results in me being in a slump afterward and no-one wants to be in a slump. So 2018 was the year of not allowing myself to get upset over giving up on books. I felt like I DNF a lot of books this year but it was only 10. In my dreams I love every book I touch but in reality that’s just not possible.

Here are the 10 books I said Thank U, Next to in 2018:

  • Maresi by Maria Turtschanioff
  • Not the Girls You’re Looking For by Aminah Mae Safi
  • City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C Anderson
  • Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
  • I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L Sanchez
  • Legendary by Stephanie Garber
  • Kids Like Us by Hilary Reyl
  • The Phantom of Manhattan by Fredrick Forsyth
  • The Silent Wife by A.S.A Harrison
  • The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann

Do you DNF books or do you stick it out?

  1. And here I was thinking “oh this is an obvious title because the song is amazing but I’m going to do it anyway.” Thanks for the shoutout!
    I’m glad I’m not the only one that DNF’d Silent Wife. I just couldn’t do it. Also I was on the fence about Legendary because I didn’t really like Caraval so if it doesn’t get any better I won’t bother reading it.

  2. Good for you for choosing to put down books you didn’t enjoy! I’ve only started doing that this year as well and it’s so freeing 😄 it sucks that you didn’t like them, but at least you were able to read more books that you (hopefully) loved!
