Top Ten Tuesday #1

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday, a new prompt about books and reading is released.

I saw this thread on a couple of blogs I follow. I think it’s brilliant, so I decided to join in!

This week’s prompt is: The Last Ten Books I Abandoned

Oof, this will be a hard one for me. I tend to finish books no matter what, so the list might have to go very back in time. As I compiled this list, I realised that there were three main reasons why I stopped reading:

  1. The writing style was plain inaccessible to me;
  2. I found them boring;
  3. (for series) I felt they moved away from their earlier spirit and lost their special magic.
