Book you tell people you’ve read, but haven’t (or haven’t finished)…
Almost forgot to do today’s post! 🙈
I can’t think of any books that I’ve said I’ve read when I haven’t! I’ll hold my hand up and say I haven’t read it!
As for books I haven’t finished, there’s not that many!
One that’s controversial is Room By Emma Donoghue
I tried to read this when it came out first and to be honest, I didn’t like it at all. I just couldn’t get into the writing style so I put it down and haven’t touched it since. In saying that, it still sits on my TBR shelves, but way way down at the bottom.
I’m just going to list the others that I can think of that I’ve started but not finished (that I can remember!)…
- Dave Grohl’s autobiography- I like the Foo Fighters but this book as just boring. I’ve read other music autobiographies and flown through them so I don’t know what happened here!
- Ghost Stories by MR James- I’ve read scarier stories in my sons books!
- Alone In The Dark by Karen Rose- only released and I had an ARC, I gave up after 200 pages. Ridiculous and full of sexual tension which ruined the book for me. My first, and possibly last, KR book.
I’m sure there’s others from before I became such an avid reader, but these are the ones I thought of.
Any book you’ve said you read when you hadn’t?!
