Every single month I tell myself that I’m going to finish every single book I pick up . . . and every single month without fail, I abandon at least 12 books the moment I am so close to finishing them. Just think, how many books would I actually finish each year if I actually finished them? At least twelve more than usual, that’s for sure.
So, for December, I’m going to try and finish all the half-read books on myself, or at least the ones I started in the last few months that is.
Yellow by Megan Jacobson
I started Yellow about half through the year because a few people I know and love, absolutely adored it. I only made it forty-five percent of the way before I put it down.
I didn’t put it down because I hated it or wasn’t enjoying it, I just felt like the protagonist was just too young for me at the time. Which is not a bad thing, young protagonists offer an amazing insight to so many different situations, and are extremely important, especially to the younger half of the young adult ‘age-bracket’ – which I am technically no longer in. *much sadness* **will read it anyway** ***for as long as I want***
But this month! I SHALL FINISH IT.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas
The moment this came out, I was at Dymocks buying my copy to binge and love and treasure. Every Goodreads status updated I posted about this book was apparently written by a very excited me.
I can’t believe I was so excited about this book and still never finished it? This book was one of the books I #needed and I barely made it a third of the way through before it ended back on my shelf untouched.
But this month, I shall conquer the beast (hopefully)
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas
I’ve only read about a hundred pages of this big guy, and again, I have no idea why I put this down? I loved Queen of Shadows at the time and was practically counting the days for the next book to come out.
Hopefully if this month goes well, I can cross both ACOWAR and Empire of my TBR pile, and then Tower of Dawn . . . eventually.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The narrator of this audio book is so boring, so I’ll blame him. He’s the reason I never finished this book.
I have a copy on my shelf and ready to read. I really enjoyed the story, or at least what I’ve listened to so far. It’s a unique concept and I love the time period that it’s set in. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck with books involving circuses *cough* Caraval.
I’m really hoping I manage to finish these this month, alongside my #LoveOzYA Bingo TBR. What books have you started but never finished? Have you every revisited them?
Until next time, may the reading fairies bless you this December and help you achieve your Goodreads goal~
