Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week.
This week the topic is 10 books which you very nearly abandoned, but managed not to.
I have a system when I read, because I don’t believe in wasting my precious free time reading a book I am not enjoying. I will give every book a fair chance, but if I don’t care and I’m not paying attention properly by page 60, then something just is not working out, and there are so many books I want to read, it isn’t worth me wasting my time on a book which I really cannot be bothered with.
So with that in mind, what books did I manage to persevere through until the end? I’ve split this week’s challenge into two sections: books I am glad I struggled through, and books I wish I had followed my gut instinct on and put down for a new one.
Books I am glad I struggled through because the story was actually pretty good!
and the five I wish I had put down anyway because they drained my will to live?
What about you guys? Bet some of these books are your favourites (looking at you, Anna and the FK fans)!
