Books I Didn't Finish in 2018

Below will be any books I started and didn't finish and the reason why.

  1. I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson 
    • The story started off interesting enough but jumped ahead too quickly and I lost interest really fast. I stopped about 1/4th into the book.
  2. Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
    • There were just too many things going on at once and I felt that Hawkins was trying too hard at building the suspense. 
  3. Devil Said Bang by Richard Kadrey
    • I think it's time to throw in the towel on this series. I kept going on the last couple but just keep loosing interest with each one. Sorry, Sandman Slim.
  4. Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
    • I liked the premise but I was just to distracted and there was a lot going on. Maybe I'll revisit this one sometime. 
  5. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
    • I really love Neil Gaiman but he's had misses for me before. I just couldn't get into this one and I feel bad because I thought with the addition of Terry Pratchett I would love it. 
  6. Private London by James Patterson
    • I felt no empathy for any of the characters. I think Patterson is just cranking out too many books and not developing any good suspense anymore. I'm throwing in the towel on this entire series now.
