I'm going to be brave and announce some books here that for one reason or another, I just couldn't finish. We've all these times, where we start a book, like the book, but for some reason, just can't seem to get through it. It's possible because it's the wrong story at the wrong time of our lives. Sometimes if I go back to a book later, I'm pleasantly surprised and glad that I gave it another chance. So here goes.
1. Sprout, Dale Peck. Yep, never finished it. Strange is that I absolutely loved the beginning, but I think the timing of when I started reading it, just wasn't right. I'm definitely going to get back to this.
2. Wings, Aprilynne Pike. I started it, but it seemed a bit too young for me. I like MG books, but there was something about it, that I just couldn't stay focused on it. I'm not sure if this is one I will go back to.
3. Models don't eat Chocolate Cookies, Erin Dionne. I started it. Forgot about it, and need to get back to it. I really enjoyed the beginning, but I misplaced the book during a cleaning session in my bedroom and recently found it again! I'm also giving this book (signed) as a Christmas gift to neighbor of mine who I think will really love it. I'm hoping to meet up with Erin next week for coffee!
4. Radiant Darkness. Emily Whitman. I started it, couldn't get into it. But will try again. Again, was at the wrong time in my reading life to get into it.
So what about you? Ever start a book, realize that perhaps you're not in the mood for that type or style of book and decide if you'll ever go back to it?
