5 Books I Didn’t Finish & Why

-The Girls by Emma Cline: I heard great things about this book but just couldn’t get into it. It didn’t seem that interesting.

– The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson: This book goes back and forth between “present day” and the past. I thought the present day part of the story was very interesting but thought the past was boring.

-Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee: I read the first few chapters and didn’t think it was anywhere near as good as To Kill A Mockingbird so I looked into it further and apparently this was the draft to what was going to be Harper Lee’s first book… but then whoever read it back in the day said that she should focus more on Scout when she was a little girl and write a story based on that instead. Which then became To Kill A Mockingbird. So this book isn’t really a sequel and does still seem like a draft.

-The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware: I was excited to read this book since it seemed really interesting but just couldn’t do it. I think the first five chapters could have been skipped, I don’t think it was written that well and it was hard to really enjoy the story or the main character.

-Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson: This book has a high rating and a lot of people who love it. I know that the injustices that the author writes about are real and serious but yet it still seemed like he was exaggerating and indulging the stories so that they proved his point more than they normally would have.
