I'm listening to Euphoria by Lily King. I've been listening to it for like a year and a half. It's not a long book, but I just can't finish it. I WILL finish it today (see? I have to convince myself), but it's like pulling teeth. For some reason I just can't abandon it. Maybe it's because it's a short book and I feel like I should just be able to plow through it. Maybe it's because I already put a sizable dent in it and don't want to have 'wasted' my time.
I have several books in my TBR pile that I refuse to give up on even though I've tried several times to read each of them. Several, I know have amazing reviews.
WIMOHB -Don't hate me, I'm halfway through!
Mistborn - I've stared this twice and am only 7% in.
The Great Hunt - Started twice as well
Dead Wake - I've been working on this 2 pages at a time for 4 month.
Heart Shaped Box - I'm not sure this counts since it's only been a month.
I feel like I should the adopt the philosophy of there's not time to waste on bad books, but I don't know that I think these books are bad. Just slow? Random musings for a Friday. How easily do you abandon books?
