DNF

  1. Outlander (Diana Gabaldon) – DNF’d 1/26/22 on page 75. It’s too long and I’m bored.
  2. Witches Steeped in Gold (Ciannon Smart) – DNF’d 2/9/22 on page 50. The overly elaborate writing style is driving me nuts.
  3. The Book of M (Peng Shepherd) – DNF’d 6/15/22 on page 113. The book is not bad, but it’s fucking depressing. Might revisit later.
  4. A Tip for the Hangman (Allison Epstein) – DNF’d 7/15/22 on page 110. It was entertaining for a while, but I’m bored and I don’t like anyone.
  5. The Girl Who Reads on the Métro (Christine Féret-Fleury) – DNF’d 7/29/22 on page 40. The protagonist is vaguely annoying and the story is not interesting.
  6. You (Caroline Kepnes) – DNF’d 9/2/22 on page 27. I can’t do this.
