Susanna - Censored by GoodReads How about the ones where the author had a hissy-fit and refused to finish it? LOL

Just enlarged this to include series. Hissy fits are good too, YES, but I can't think of one like that can you?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Uh, Midnight Sun.

Bettie Which one - the Meyer - really? *laughs*


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yes, part of it leaked, and in a snit, she's refused to finish it.

Hayes Article at Wikipeee

From article: "She said that her goal was to go for around two years without hearing about Midnight Sun, and she thought that she would begin working on the novel again once she was sure that "everyone's forgotten about it"."

Which means that we have to email her every now and then to let her know that we haven't forgotten about it!

Lobstergirl Don't add the individual Stieg Larsson books, as each of them is finished. You can vote for the Trilogy - I just added it.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) How about translations? Dorothy L. Sayers didn't quite make it through her translation of part 3 of Dante's Divine Comedy (Paradise), which was finished by (I think) Barbara Reynolds ...

I gave up on the "Game of Thrones" series after the fifth season. Blood, death, torture, and sex (coulda had more sex and less of the blood, death, torture). Besides, I could see who was gonna take it all.
