This was another tough topic. These are all books I have read and not DNFd. I included them on this list because if I had not read them, I would have been constantly wondering and curious to pick them up. Have you read any books that you did not like yet glad you marked off of your TBR?

Conspiracy With YA Titles?

What is this conspiracy I’m talking about? So many YA titles with FIVE words. Think about it! It isn’t with one genre, it is across YA in general. Here is a small selection of books to drive my point home:

A Semi-Definitive List Of Worst Nightmares

A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares

 

 

 

 

This was not an easy list for me to compile. I do not like DNFing books but feel it can be necessary. The list above was compiled based on something to do with the characters that caused me to stop reading. It could have been character traits or underdeveloped characters. Either way, this list proves that not all books are for all readers. Have you ever stopped reading a book because of the characters or do you push through until the end?
