Top Ten Tuesday (cont.) – Series I Just DNFed

top ten tuesday (3)…continued

In case you missed it, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was ten bookish things you want to quit. My list included ten bookish habits that I want to quit, but a lot of people listed ten books/series they DNFed. After reading quite a few posts, I felt inspired. An idea was percolating. And just now, I decided. It’s time to DNF some series. 

It has been difficult impossible for me to DNF series up until this point. Here’s why:

  1. I’m not a quitter. I can’t let things go unfinished.
  2. I would like to know how everything turns out.
  3. I feel invested in the characters/story and don’t want the time already invested to be a waste.

But after reading so many TTT about people DNFing books/series, I feel ready to take the plunge. Here’s why:

  1. DNFing a series does not make me a quitter. I start and finish way more books than I will ever DNF.
  2. I started the series that I am DNFing years ago. I can’t remember the characters or stories, so how can I possibly care how everything turns out?
  3. The time that I spent on the first book in the series wasn’t a waste. It was still a story that I enjoyed for a period of time. Who cares that the story isn’t complete?

So, without further ado, here are the series that I will not be finishing and the reason for doing so:

1154446613447149

Breathe series by Sarah Crossan (don’t care)

6261522 7827221 11838803 10468701

The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting (don’t care, too long)

The Souls series by Mary Lindsey (don’t care)

1019451413561164  17233800 18333898 25263399

113663971794860722449285

The Program series by Suzanne Young (don’t care)

110436181610966417352960

  15749887

The Psychopath Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire (hated this book and its terrible messages)

15717943

The Creeper Hopeless series by Colleen Hoover (hated this book and its terrible messages)

21375321695066393972 17165913

The Last Survivors series by Susan Beth Pfeffer (reviews say the last book glorifies rape, so that’s not happening)

I feel so good about this. There are some series that I’ve started that I genuinely do want to finish, so now I can focus on those.


How do you feel about DNFing? Under what circumstances will you DNF a book or series?

  1. Yay! I feel you; i hate not finishing books or series. But life is too short to read bad books. It’s there for enjoyment anf basically we’re wasting time on a book we’re not enjoying when we could be reading a book we can’t put down. Good job on going with it!
