I usually try to finish a book before giving up. No matter how bad it is, I force myself to read it till the end, but here on this list are five books that I had to put down. I am also including the synopsis to each of the books! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
5. Nora Okja Keller, the acclaimed author of Comfort Woman, tells the shocking story of a group of young people abandoned after the Korean War. At the center of the tale are two teenage girls—Hyun Jin and Sookie, a teenage prostitute kept by an American soldier—who form a makeshift family with Lobetto, a lost boy who scrapes together a living running errands and pimping for neighborhood girls. Both horrifying and moving, Fox Girl at once reveals another layer of war’s human detritus and the fierce love between a mother and daughter.
This book was too graphic for me. It was sad and I didn’t have the heart to continue reading. I couldn’t continue reading it. I really felt sorry for the protagonist and I hated her best friend.
4. Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.
Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town’s tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.
I really tried getting into the Caster Chronicles. The first book was okay, but I wasn’t a big fan of the writing and I didn’t like the protagonists.
As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.
The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.
I want to give this book another chance! I don’t want to give up on it. Right now, is not the best time to read it, but I will get back to reading it. This is the only book on this list that I will pick up again in the future. Also, the show looks amazing!
The book was really boring for me. I dropped it and watched the show instead.
1. When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.
Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?
I was really excited to read Breaking Dawn when it first came out. It seemed like I was going to finish it and then my friends spoiled it for me. My ship went crashing down (Jacob and Bella). It wasn’t worth it. I couldn’t avoid the spoilers. I had to drop it. I didn’t even finish watching the movies as well. Even now, I don’t think I’ll pick up this book again.
