Now that I’m finally on spring break, I truly hope that I will be able to blog more. I have been gone for nearly a month now, which is the longest time that I haven’t posted anything on my blog since its creation. I’ve been feeling a bit burnt out, and as I said before, school is still taking up a huge chunk of my time. I can’t wait to graduate; at least now there is less than two months left.
Regardless, over the past year, there have been numerous books which I started but didn’t finish for numerous reasons. Mostly, it was not that I disliked the books or intended to stop them, but that I one way or another was unable to finish them. I got distracted, started new books saying that I would continue reading them…but never did. So, I wanted to write a post about all these books as motivation to complete them!
The first book on this list is one I started reading…two years ago? And this is going to be a complete shock for those who know how much I love Leigh Bardugo: Crooked Kingdom. Now, here’s the thing. I read about 200 pages of it when I had a copy from the library. But then I had to give it back. And although I was gifted a copy of it afterwards, I never got around to reading it even though I sincerely love this series. BUT I WILL. (Hopefully).
Next, I have When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. I think I also started reading this book over a year ago, and I believe I read more than half of it. I liked it, too! The issue was…sometime as I was reading it…I got distracted…and then never finished it. Again, I do want to finish it, though.
Next I have Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi. I think I read around 60% of this book, and I was really into it as I read it. But then I randomly stopped. And I haven’t been able to get around to it ever since…sigh.
Now, here’s the most problematic book on this list: Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas. Why, you may ask? Well, here’s the thing. I’m not quite sure I want to read this book anymore. I read around 200 pages of the nearly 1000 paged book, and guys, it has thus far been so damn boring. I’ve definitely started disliking her books more and more, and with Tower of Dawn I was really starting to get annoyed. So, though I really want to see how this series ends, I’m not certain if I want to jump into the novel again because it feels like a job. Not to mention I have already forgotten what I read a couple months ago.
Alright, so now that that’s been said, the rest of the couple books on this list I am currently more-or-less actively reading. I just need to make sure I finish them before I forget about them and move onto other books.
First, I have Soul in Darkness by Wendy Higgins. I only have about 10% of the book left, so I’m almost there! I’ve been reading it as an e-book over the past two months which is why I keep forgetting to finish it.
Next, I have We Regret to Inform You by Ariel Kaplan. I started reading this one about two weeks ago with a library copy. Guess what happened? I had to give the book back, so even though I found it super entertaining, I’m still halfway through it. Yikes.
Finally, the book I’m reading right now–The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X. R. Pan! I met Emily at the Nova Teen Book Festival a couple weeks ago, and she was absolutely wonderful. I can’t wait to read the rest of the book.
Anyway, thank you so much for reading! Please let me know if you have a bunch of unfinished books like me, haha.
