I just couldn't finish those last two books. There was just something I didn't like about this series so I decided not to waste my time.

Ann (AnnRumsey) | 11094 comments Susie: looks like a good month! And I agree with deciding to not finish when a book just didn't grab you. I've done that several times lately.

I abandon library books constantly. It's always a tremendous disappointment to me because all these are books that I put on hold because they sounded so good, and I had been looking forward to them.

I used to abandon e-books regularly, but now most of my e-books are books that I've committed to review. So I have to finish them.

Carol/Bonadie (Bonadie) | 6498 comments 11 books is nothing to sneeze at, Susie! And all 4's except for the series you wisely decided to DNF. Life is too short and there are too many good books out there we'll never get to as it is.

Melodie (MelodieCO) | 3186 comments Good month and I also agree about abandoning a book you don't like. I actually really liked all the books in the Piece of Cake series, including the 2 you DNF'd! I'm sure a lot of that had to do with the New Orleans setting.
