And this week the topic is books that took you the longest to finish, so books that stayed on your ‘currently reading’ shelf for ages. So let’s get started!
Sister by Rosamund Lupton
I mention this book a lot in my Top 5’s and I didn’t even enjoy it that much… But this book had been on my currently reading shelf for about 2 year, I guess, before I realized that I really needed to finish that book. I was still interested in who did it, but I didn’t get through the book that easily because it was dragging on.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
This book had been on my currently reading shelf for over a year. I just stopped reading half way through the book and I couldn’t say that I wasn’t interested in the book at all, I really enjoyed Divergent. But this was also in the time I told myself not to read because I needed to get college stuff done.
Vampire kisses by Ellen Schreiber
I didn’t like this book, I really didn’t. But because I had promised my sister that I would read one of her favorite books, I had to finish it. Now that I think about it, I don’t think I ever DNFed a book (except for the library books I had to bring back and didn’t get to finish), but if I hadn’t promised my sister that I would finish this book, this would have been the first one. It just wasn’t a book for me.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
This book has been on my currently reading shelf between a half year and a year. If I think back on it, I think it was because of college (surprise), but also that I had seen the movie before I read the book and there wasn’t new to me in the book. So I think that was the reason.
Sword Art Online by Reki Kawahara
It took me weeks if not months to finish this manga and normally I finish a manga in one or two sittings. So that says a lot. I really liked the beginning, the concept is really cool but it wasn’t used well in my opinion. And I really didn’t like what happened to Asuna’s character. I won’t go into dept about it, because spoilers!, but I didn’t like it.
